Try this DIY brown sugar honey scrub before hitting the beach…
I actually learned about this concoction from my high school Geometry teacher. She had the most radiant, flawless skin and she swore by this! I love it because it’s easy to use, inexpensive to make, and leaves my skin SO soft.
I am leaving for Hawaii on Wednesday, so in order to get beach ready I want to get rid of any dead skin cells before catching some rays. I have seen some similar recipes on Pinterest for a sugar honey facial scrub, which also works great, but I think it’s good for your whole body too. This is a must if you are about to get a spray tan or apply self-tanner. On the flip side–if you have gotten a bad spray tan and need to get it off–I have been there before & this was my saving grace.
An added bonus is that this is all natural. I’ve said it before in other posts, but I have super sensitive skin so giving it a break from any additional chemicals is a plus!
I start off by pouring the honey directly into my hand, about the size of golfball. I think it’s easier to make it in the palm of my hand as opposed to mixing it in a container and pouring it from there.
I measured out about 1/3 cup of brown sugar for both of my legs. After pouring the honey, I then sprinkled a desired amount of the brown sugar into my hands. You want even parts of honey and brown sugar, but you can add more brown sugar to make it grittier.
Hope you’ll give this a try. Happy tanning!
