I can tell the way the phone calls for appointments stop at my sweet beauty retreat in sunny Florida and the phone rings less that we are coming upon a long holiday weekend.Our mail orders show us that people want all things to tan and give that gorgoeus tan glow.
But BEFORE you get your glow on you need this.
In order for your skin to receive self tanner in spray,powder or lotion you MUST exfoliate your skin both face and body.Say bye bye to dead tired skin and prep the skin for that I escaped to a beautiful island look.
I have many beauty recipes that I whip up from time to time in my recipe box.But this one I received from a friend had a sweet ingredient I have never added to my recipe.The sweet secret is HONEY.
Lemon Honey Sweet Sugar Scrub
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of sweet almond oil
4 teaspoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons of honey
4 drops of lemon essential oil
First you mix the oil and sugar.
Next add the other ingredients and mix well.
Polish your skin using light pressure for 30-60 seconds.Pay special attention to your knees,elbows and any areas of concern where you have dry skin patches.
Wipe clean with a warm soft washcloth and rinse well.
Your skin will feel AMAZING,soft and silky smooth.
Now, your skin is ready for your self tanner or a base tan. But I professionally recommend NOT baking like a dozen chococolate chip cookies in the sun! Beach,patio or backyard PROTECT your beautiful skin from the harmful sun rays.
A little of the sun’s vitamin D goes a long way,my little cupcakes!
Have a beautiful weekend wherever you live. Celebrate life!
