WINTER can tend to suck the life out of our silky smooth skin and turn it into more alligator-ish skin
...but no worries girls!
I've got just the trick to have perfect skin all winter long
and best part is you make it with ingredients you already have in your kitchen!! WIN!


1/2 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 cups Turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw)
1 Tablespoon honey
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 Tablespoon Vanilla extract (or your favorite essential oil)
Directions: Combine the two sugars in a bowl and mix to incorporate. Add olive oil and stir. Mix in honey and vanilla. Store in an airtight jar and enjoy!
* This is a coarse scrub, if you would like a more gentle scrub you can substitute brown sugar for the turbinado sugar.
* Always exfoliate before shaving to prevent irritation and achieve a better shave.
* You may add more olive oil to your jar after packing if you desire a different consistency.
* Oil will settle in the jar so stir before using.
* I do not recommend using this scrub on your face. It is intended for use on the body only.

and if you're feeling especially crafty you could even package them cute and send them out as gifts!!

happy scrubbing!! ;)
