I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I think my weekend could have been more productive, but I won’t complain. This will be my last post until this Friday (2 August). Until then, I will be studying for an exam in comparative criminal justice, which is this Thursday. Wish me luck!
Yesterday I decided to treat myself to a DIY sugar scrub. I decided to do this DIY lime sugar scrub because I thought it was a perfect match for the beautiful summer weather.
While I have nicknamed this sugar scrub “Margarita Feet” it is not exclusively for feet. The first time I ever made this I was giving myself a pedicure and I only used the scrub on my feet. When I was done I told Tom, “My feet smell like a margarita!”
If you’re looking for a way to exfoliate your skin while absorbing excess oils, look no further than your kitchen, or at the very least, the closest grocery store.
This mask calls for two ingredients – lemon juice and plain instant oatmeal.
In a bowl, combine 1 cup of instant oatmeal with just enough lemon juice to form a paste. Using your fingers, apply the mixture to your face, massaging lightly to exfoliate. Once you have applied the oatmeal face mask, sit back and allow it to dry completely, then rinse well with warm water.
The first time I tried this mask I applied a very thick layer to my face and it took forever to dry – a thin layer is all you need.
I am always looking for new DIY face masks to try. If you have any suggestions please leave it as a comment or send me an e-mail. If you have a tutorial on your blog that you would like me to use the post will include a link to your blog.
