Is Your Skin Beach Ready Ethnic Beauties?



Okay ethic beauties, it's time for the beach! After the long months of cold, snow and ice, things are finally beginning to look like Spring for most of you. Blooming flowers, the greening of grass and trees and the warmth of the sun, all bring to mind the hot sands of a beach. When youíve been cooped up for months at a time, any beach is a welcomed site.

That all sounds like a great idea, but what does your skin look like after being hidden behind layers of fabric? Dry, ashy and badly in need of a body scrub. Let's not forget hair removal!

You can set up your own spa environment and take care of most of the dead skin cells that have accumulated over the past few months. But what do you use? Thereís nothing like a good body scrub . Iíll share a recipe with you on how to make a scrub.

The Basic Body Scrub

2 oz sweet almond oil
2 oz grapeseed oil
1 oz jojoba oil
2 oz apricot kernel oil
3.3 oz emulsifying was
2.3 oz stearic acid
2.5 oz cocoa butter
1 oz Shea butter
16 oz white or brown sugar
.3 oz of essential or fragrance oil
A preservative - you can use natural ingredients such as T-50 Vitamin E oil or grapefruit seed extract.

After measuring out each ingredient, place the was, stearic acid and butters in a small stock pot on low heat and allow to melt. Be sure to occasionally stir.

When the wax and butters have melted, add your oils. Allow to cool for 30 minutes. Add your brown sugar to the pot of cooled oils and stir well. Allow to continue to cool. After the mixture has cooled stir in your essential or fragrance oil. Using an electric mixer, whip the scrub until it is thick and fluffy.

Spoon your scrub into a sterile jar and store in a dark place or your refrigerator . This recipe will make up to 32 ounces. It will keep your skin soft, not to mention looking radiantly beautiful, as you head to the beach in that new bathing suit you just bought.

It's simple and quick to make. If you donít want to do it yourself there are plenty of indie makers that will whip you up a batch, for a fee of course.

By the way, I mentioned hair removal earlier. Don't have hair removed and exfoliate on the same day, you could cause irritations to your skin.

That's it for this week. As always Ö
