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!”
This is surprisingly one of my favorite lip scrubs, I say ‘surprisingly’ because I do not like honey. I guess I am too focused on the results to care about the ingredients. For those of you who do like honey, this recipe is completely edible. I heard about it from a friend of mine, and every time she uses this, she licks it off her lips.
You will need a small glass or plastic container with a lid. If you enjoy making products like this start saving lip balm and eye shadow pots. You can also buy suitable containers if you don’t already have some. I purchased the container I used on sale from CanWax.
Aside from a container with a lid, all you’re going to need to make this is sugar, honey and lime juice.
In your container, combine equal parts honey and sugar, then add slightly less lime juice. If you wish to thicken the product to get more of a scrub, add more sugar. Stir well. If the product starts to separate between uses, give it another quick stir.
Store your lip scrub at room temperature in your lidded container and use once or twice a day. When using, massage onto your lips with your finger and continue to massage for a minute or two.
