I’m totally loving this months theme of summer and body image. There have been some amazing posts written and it’s been so inspirational to read.
I don’t have any inspiration story to share with you today, instead, we are making homemade facial scrubs! Yippee! I have been wanting to get a facial done for so long but just can’t bring myself to spend the money. Now there are so many different kinds of facials out there, each have a different purpose. Ours serves the purpose of refreshing our faces and is a great exfoliate. I’ll give you a hint as to why we chose to do this particular scrub. 115 degree summers! Nuff said? I did NOT want some hot scrub with a hot towel covering my face. I want something that will be cool and refreshing. This one certainly did the trick. Today we are making… Just the name makes me feel refreshed! Now let’s get our ingredients together. You will need: 1Tbsp-Baking Soda (exfoliates and is believed to help with acne)
2 Cups-Sugar (exfoliates)
1 Small Lemon- Squeeze approximately 1 Tbsp (brighten & even skin tone, provide good vitamins)
1 Orange- Squeeze approximately 1 Tbsp (brighten & even skin tone, provide good vitamins)
2 Tbsp Honey (soothes irritation and attracts moisture)
1/4 Cup- Pineapple Juice (helps in anti aging)
Mix all your ingredients together It should be thick and grainy. If you think it is too runny, just add some more sugar, it will thicken right up. It even looks refreshing (and delicious according to Laryssa…who I had to restrain from eating it!)
We are also going to give you a simple lip scrub to go along with this. For the lip scrub you will need. 1 Tbsp- Sugar
1/2 Tsp- Honey
1/2 Tsp- Vaseline
Tiny squeeze of Orange Juice
Mix it all together. Now comes the fun part of applying it. Get your face wet first and then scrub it on. Ya, we’re pretty hot and we know it! Ha! You probably never want to look at your computer screen ever again right? Sorry to scare you!
You can let it sit for a few minutes and then wash it off. Our skin felt totally refreshed, bright, soft, and beautified, not to mention we had some seriously soft lips. Hopefully you feel as refreshed as we did with our Tropical Facial Scrub and Lip Scrub. Happy Summer!!!
