Tips for glowing skin and vitality!
1. HYDRATE AND NOURISH
THE SEXY LEGS Body Scrub
Now you have fully exfoliated with your dry brush and gloves –how about adding in a homemade scrub that will pack a punch for moisturizing and nourishing. Here’s one I love and will recommend to everyone who loves smooth legs. I use this 3 times a week to help with cellulite as well – and it smells divine!
½ cup white sugar
½ cup coffee grounds
¼ cup coconut oil or grapeseed oil
Mix together and store in a glass container. HOW TO USE: First, get wet then turn off the shower and apply to legs, then rinse. Coffee can be a little messy, but totally worth it. It’s a summer must do. It helps the texture of the skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite due to increasing circulation – yipee caffeine!
The Essential Coconut Oil Blend
GO NATURAL – WHY? Using lotions and other products that are not natural can allow your body to become dependent, creating even more of a drying effect. In addition, limiting the amount of toxins you put on your skin gives your liver a break. Coconut oil with it’s hydration properties it allows your skin to breathe and feel soft naturally. Living in the mountains and the beach – it’s the only product that has actually made a difference in my extremely dry skin and with the oils it adds a powerful punch. I can’t remember what I did without it!
My ESSENTIAL oils to add to COCONUT oil:
Ylang Ylang – Great for adrenals, balancing hormones, mood and libido.
Lavender – Calming and an excellent one for healing the skin and for extra dry skin.
Geranium – Great for mood support, hormones, liver and digestive support.
Sandalwood – Great for skin, oxygen/brain, mood and libido.
2. GO with Natural Skin Care Products
“VERAGE” by doTERRA – This all natural product line has me hooked. If you are looking for smooth, soft skin, and no breakouts it’s on! I love that this product line not only works to clean, hydrate and reduce wrinkles but is all natural and won’t overload my system with toxins. It’s amazing for the price as well and I usually spend well over that a month for my face products. Check out the full line here.
In NZ “Tailor” www.tailorskincare.co.nz is an awesome brand as well! Tailor has amazing Masks for cleansing naturally. Sarah of Tailor wrote a great article you can access here, about the benefits of a papaya enzyme peel and healthy skin care regime. Check it out for more beauty tips!
So here’s your small action plan tonight:
Grab your body wash and skin products and make sure you can read all the ingredients. If it’s not natural start making some changes from the outside in! Then in the next few days try making your own scrub with coffee or just sugar and essential oils. Love your skin up!!!
