DIY Face and Body Scrubs

Some of my favorite ways to treat my self (this one's for you Annie) is to lather up in the shower with yummy soaps and scrubs. Now if you like to treat yourself often, this could get expensive with all those fancy scrubs and things to indulge with. I'm going to share a simple and inexpensive way to get your body polish on, by just looking in your kitchen cupboard!

My favorite and most used homemade body scrub: Coconut and Brown Sugar 

1/4 cup of brown sugar or white cane sugar
1 Tablespoon of Coconut oil (Olive Oil is a wonderful substitute as well)
Dime-sized amount of gentle liquid face or body soap (to help with scrub consistency) 

Blend all ingredients together, scrub onto skin for a couple minutes and rinse off!  

Brightening face scrub/ mask: Baking Soda Polish

1 Tablespoon of baking soda 
Quarter sized amount of mild liquid face soap 
squirt of lemon juice 

Mix all ingredients to get a paste like consistency (add more baking soda if it is too fluid). Gently massage onto wet skin, and leave on face for 5 minutes. Rise off with warm water and pat skin dry. You will have soft, brightened skin all day! 

Feel well, so you can be well. 

Cheers and indulge on a budget! 

Love, Bianca.
