Kate's Successful Body Scrub:
-1/3 cup brown sugar
-1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
-half an avocado
-splash of lemon juice
This body scrub was abrasive, so do not use if you're skin is not in dire need of an exfoliant! But it worked wonders and left my skin soft and replenished after use! I will absolutely make this again to help with my winter skin woes!
The scrub on the left was the successful scrub. The scrub on the right was made with avocado, sea salt, and lemon juice. I refrigerated my scrubs over night and the salt had mostly resolved into the mixture, so it was not very exfoliating, but I put some of it on my legs after I used the sugar scrub and found it moisturizing. If you want to make a sea salt scrub, do not put it in the fridge and maybe add some white sugar or add extra salt to help make it... scrubby! Next time, I plan smashing the extra half of the avocado to use on my skin after I exfoliate to nourish and moisturize skin!
Ultimately, my first ever beauty DIY was pretty successful and I will repeat this recipe since it really only costed me a dollar since I always have tons of brown sugar and lemon juice on hand! Yay for at home spa nights! What are some at home beauty DIY's you've tried??
