Nothing ruins quicker a well put together outfit than ashy, dull skin!
What good does spending an hour perfecting your perfect wing liner if your ashy elbows are going steal the show?
Besides a good diet and exercise regimen, skincare products are my priority to feel and look healthy.
They are what I rely on when I didn’t get much sleep and don’t look my best!
One very important step in my skincare routine is to exfoliate.
This step is very important to reveal beautiful and soft skin ready to absorb anything else you need to apply to your skin!
It’s also so relaxing! Especially after you body brush!
I cannot remember the last time I spent money on a ready made body scrub. The price tags always make me cringe!
Body scrubs are one of the easiest and cheapest things to make at home, even if you are not into dyi-ing.
My go-to to bases are coffee and raw cane sugar. I sometimes even mix the two together!
The benefits of coffee in your skin care are amazing! Especially when it comes to tightening and getting rid of cellulite!
I also love having freshly crush peppermint leaves in my sugar scrubs.
This herb does wonder for your skin and hair! Read all about the benefits of peppermint for skin and hair here! This thing was a lifesaver when I was pregnant! Hormones induced backne are absolutely the worst! Turns out peppermint oil is great for headaches, itching, and so much more!
