A couple of months ago, a crafty friend gifted me with a homemade lavender and oil sugar scrub that has been keeping my flaky skin at bay by exfoliating all of my driest bits and pieces. It was so luxurious that it sent me on the cyberhunt for other DIY scrubs that are just as potent and powerful.
Mission accomplished. I just found another super cool homemade beauty scrub recipe courtesy of the Beauty Place Blog.
So...you could spend $38 on a fancy jar of spa scrub, or you can make a giant batch of your own with organic staples that are already sitting in your pantry.
Wake up and smell the smoother thighs by mixing half a cup of your used coffee grinds from your morning pot of joe with a quarter cup sugar and a quarter cup of extra virgin olive oil. Apply in a circular motion to your most cellulite ridden areas, rinse off, pat dry and voila! Your blood vessels will be stimulated, your skin exfoliated and hydrated, for thighs that will appear sleeker, smoother, and less dimply.
p.s. If your man is a coffeeholic, he'll think you smell good too.
