I'm a 'Wear Sandals All Year' kinda girl. But sometimes these frigid temps lead to neglected feet. Warmer weather means exposing those toes! My Sweet Grandma always told me that a woman who keeps her nails and toes nice is a sign of a woman who takes care of herself.. and she noted that men love that. But who are we kidding.. it feels good to pamper yourself. So in preparation for Spring, I am on a body polishing, scrubbing, exfoliating kick! I like my scrubs on the grittier side, and they're actually hard to come by. Trader Joe's Lavender Scrub is the right texture.. but I tire of lavender. Just because I take Grandma's advice doesn't mean I want to smell like a Grandma! Why oh why did they discontinue the other scents?! But anyway, I've been whipping up a few varieties to share and here is the first..
Sugar Cookie Scrub
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar in the raw
1/4 cup course sea salt
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tbs. vanilla extract
-Whisk dry ingredients until well blended.
-Add olive oil and vanilla and mash together with a fork or whisk until well combined.
-Store in a jar.
So easy! Now, I'm off to polish up!
