We have had a very 'dry' winter here in Florida. Our skin is paying the price and leaving me with a serious case of lizard legs. My favorite shower treatment is a simple sugar scrub. I keep a few cups of sugar in a glass bottle in my shower(an old drink bottle). When my skin needs an extra boost I combine a handful of sugar with my bodywash and scrub away. When my skin is really dry or I want to do my feet, I skip the body wash. This way the sugar does not dissolve as quickly and I get more dead skin off. Follow with your favorite moisturizer and you will have super smooth skin! Scrub your skin before your shave and you will have the closest shave ever!
Honey and Oatmeal facial
Mix a quarter of a cup of honey and half a cup of quick cook oatmeal with a half a cup of water and cook. Let cool and spread over your face 30 minutes before your shower. To give an extra exfoliant boost, add 2 table spoons of lemon juice. Rub off in the shower and you will have a super healthy glow!
The magic of Tea Tree oil
If you plan on sprucing up your bikini area for a hot date or day at the beach take an extra step to avoid bikini rash. Fill your bathroom sink with warm water and add a 10-15 drops of Tea Tree oil to the water. Soak wash cloths, cloth baby wipes or paper towels in the sink and then ring out most of the water. Roll the towels up and place them in a zip-lock bag. Keep the bag in the fridge. Apply the towel to your bikini area right after the shave and a few days following to keep ingrown hairs at bay. If you wax at home, like I do, these towels are great to use on any newly waxed area.
