It’s definitely shorts weather and this weekend I realized my skin needed some love to look it’s best. After looking in my beauty junk drawer, i.e. random samples, hotel goodies and gift with purchase items, I was inspired to make my own body scrub. Sugar base is my favorite as it seems to be the most gentle yet still gets the job done. The basic recipe calls for 2 parts sugar and 1 part oil. I used Nars body oil which I am obsessed with – it smells amazing and makes me feel like I’m on vacation somewhere tropical. The oil is scented with Tahitian gardenia and is a true small luxury. Not only did this DIY body scrub make my skin glow but it left behind the sweet smell of summer.
