Summer is here & bare feet are a guarantee for every weekend.
Bare feet, sand from the beach, extra sun & ocean saltwater all contribute to that dry skin you get all overrrrr.
Want a really great spa treatment for your dry legs/feet/elbows/arms? Don’t want to go to the spa? Don’t even want to leave your air conditioned place to get a moisturizer that hardly even helps? Being in your 20’s is all about faking it ’til you’re making it. So – here’s my “fake it” to help you look like ya “made it.”
Look no further. Byrdy DIY comin’ atcha!
Pour oil on to the sugar. It will easily begin to fold together.
Mix together in a bowl with your hands (or a spoon) and create your oily textured scrub. Simple as that.
Apply/slather all over areas that you’d like to exfoliate & moisturize (legs, feet, knees, arms elbows…)*
*A little bit goes a LONG way.
If you have a facial exfoliation/moisturizer in mind feel free to add the following: essential oils, fresh squeezed lemons, blueberries or any berries for antioxidants, oatmeal… some more simple as pie recipes. Like you don’t need measurements either – just mix whatever you have and hope for the best.
Tomatoes (rich in lycopene) & sugar are great for protecting against UV rays from the sun.
Olive oil, coffee grinds & organic honey is an easy one I’ve done as well. This smells amazing & works well, especially in the morning! It can get rather messy – use it in the shower. (if you’re not into DIY but love a coffee scrub, frank body has got it goin’ on!).
Oats, honey & olive oil is a great mixture for super dry skin as well. Very moisturizing.
So basically, get in your kitchen, find some random ingredients that you may need and make your scrub. Cheap (basically free) and easy! You can use it 2-3x per week.
