So any of you ladies out there consider Sunday your day for a deep conditioning hair mask, a face mask, and body scrubbing? I know I do! I look forward to Sundays anyways, but there’s just something great about being all scrubbed and moisturized that makes me feel like I’m ready for the coming week.
Like I have my priorities straight.
Like I’m on my A-game.
That may seem like a slight exaggeration, but I promise these scrubs will make you feel like you’re in a brand new skin! I love, love, love Lush’s Ocean Salt Cleanser, but it’s a bit out of my budget sometimes, so I decided to try my hand at a homemade body scrub, that’s similar to Lush’s scrub, in that it’s more natural ingredients, so you’re not scrubbing your skin with chemicals (sad face).
I didn’t want to go to the store to buy anything extra for my scrub (lazy?), so I used what I had at home already! I wanted to make some wintery scrubs, but unfortunately I don’t have peppermint oil in my pantry at all times…So I ended up with a lime body scrub! It legit smells like vacation, it’s soo yummy! My skin was glowing and my smeller was happy with lime goodness.
Coconut Lime Body Scrub:
3/4 c. Sugar
1/4 c. Coconut Oil
Zest of one lime
juice of one lime
Mix all together, you can change the measurements a bit to get to your desired consistency. Then it’s time to scrub!
So being I got so excited about the body scrub, I had to also make a lip scrub! I’ve found my lips get extra dry the more I wear lipstick, and I had heard a lipscrub is a must before every lipstick application. Let’s be real though, it would be a miracle to be able to do it that often, so Sunday Scrubday, will be The Day. 🙂 This lip scrub ended up being a bubble gum flavor (to die for)! I’m so excited for you guys to try them out!
Bubblegum Lip Scrub:
2 tsp. Coconut Oil
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
10 drops Vanilla Essential Oil (I used Aveda’s)
1 drop red food coloring (optional, if you want to keep it cleaner, leave it out)
Mix together and put into a cute little jar, and scrub!
