Aw, sugar sugar

Ick, my blog looks neked as a hoe on spring break. I think I've worked out the kinks for the most part. I'm in the works of getting a new design going on to make the poor thing look pretty again.

A while back before going to get a spray tan, I hopped in the shower to do a full exfoliation. Of course I was sopping wet when I realized I didn't have any body scrub. PERFECTION. I hopped back out and rummaged through my bathroom cabinets. NOTHIN'. So, out of desperation, I went to the kitchen and grabbed the sugar. I've seen plenty of sugar scrub recipes online, but I didn't have time to concoct anything special. I got in the shower and literally
POUR(ed) SOME SUGAR ON ME... in the name of love spray tans.

Let me just tell ya', it worked like a charm! So super smooth & WAY cheaper than the body scrub they sell in stores!
$20 buck-a-roos

orrr $2.50?

I think you know the answer, my friend!

To make a real scrub, add 1/2 cup of olive oil(per cup of sugar), lemon juice(optional)for skin brightening & essential oils if you want to make it smell pretty! (It will smell like lemonade if not, which is fine and dandy for me! You could also add salt for more scrubby goodness!)

7 love notes:

  1. What a GREAT idea!!! I will try that for sure!!

  2. Testing if comments will post yet...

  3. Oooh, thank you ubber much for posting that grand recipe. I may pour some sugar on myself tomorrow. Ha!

  4. Oooh, ooh! I like pouring brown sugar on myself in the shower and loudly singing the Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar" very, very loudly in a crazy Mick Jagger voice...through a bullhorn if possible!!
    It's lots of fun until the police come and arrest me because I broke into my neighbor's house and used their brown sugar up in their shower...oh, and also because I stole their TV...

  5. well aren't you thrifty! Yay, I am so glad your blog is back together. I missed saying hi.

  6. Thanks for the info. I buy expensive apricot scrub; I'm going to try the sugar.

    Sugar has many uses. Years ago, I read an article about a woman who was a foot model for sandals and toe nail polish. When not working, she wore two pair of socks and a slightly large pair of comfortable sneakers over a mixture of vegetable oil and sugar. So every time she walked, the sugar was rubbing off dry skin and preventing callouses. I lived in Brazil for a while and needed to boil and filter my water. I used a handful of sugar to clean the filter each week. A teaspoon of sugar, swallowed before it stars to liquify in your mouth will stop hiccups, too.
