Get Ready To Bear Some Skin!

Summer is officially here, so make sure that you are ready to bear your skin in those sleeveless tops and skimpy sandals. Try these quick and easy recipes to help you put your best skin forward, then remember to protect yourself with sunscreen and daily moisturizing. Not caring for your skin will result in drying, premature aging, and may even cause severe issues such as cancer, so take a few minutes to care for yourself! Any skin treatment needs to begin with a good exfoliating scrub. Here two simple recipes that rid your hands and feet dead, dry, tough, and unsightly areas. Use as often as necessary, but regular treatments of once a week will make a great addition to your beauty care regimen.
Mix 1/2 cup of dry cornmeal with 2 TBS. of avocado oil (if you are in a hurry to use and don't have avocado oil on hand, substitute olive oil). Spread on your feet and then rub with a pumice stone. Make sure that you concentrate on the heels and any calloused areas. Rinse with warm water and pat dry, then moisturize.
Take 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 2 TBS. apricot oil, and the juice of 1/2 of a lemon and mix together, then immediately rub the mixture on hands. Rinse with warm water, pat dry and moisturize. The sugar works to slightly abrade the skin, while cleansing and stimulating it. The apricot oil is a natural lubricant that moisturizes and rejuvenates the skin. Together, these ingredients make a great treatment to rid your hands of dead, dry skin. Exfoliated skin is soft, clean and healthy!
