I don’t know about you, but winter seriously plays havoc with my skin. It goes super dry and flaky thanks to the cold weather, central heating and constant temperature changes going from the freezing outside to warm inside. I’ve tried so many things in the past to try to sort it out; different body creams, shower gels, dry brushing and exfoliators. But none of it has ever really worked before. Every year I’m at a loss and have no idea how to best tackle the inevitable dryness.
But this year, I decided to stop trying different products from the shops and just make it myself. I absolutely love making my own beauty products. I used to make a hair mask with avocados which left my hair feeling so soft. But I had to stop making it because I developed a massive love of avocados and now can’t imagine wasting them on my hair!
All The Good Stuff
This exfoliating scrub is made up of brown sugar to help exfoliate, coconut oil because the beauty benefits are huge (it also makes a great hair mask), and orange and cinnamon to add a true festive touch. We all know that orange is good for you, and contains a bunch of vitamin C. But when the juice is applied to your skin directly it helps to reduce pores and fight against spot outbreaks. And cinnamon is amazing for helping rid your skin of spots too. So, it not only smells good, but is so great for your skin.
Christmas In A Jar
As soon as you open the lid you’re engulfed in the most delicious orange-cinnamon scent, which is like Christmas in a jar. This Christmas Cookie scrub (yep, it smells just like a delicious festive cookie, and I was slightly tempted to have a taste!), can be used all over the body and leaves you feeling soft, smooth and smelling great! It’s quick and super easy to make, and only requires a few ingredients, not to mention a lot cheaper than buying one in the shops. I only wish that I tried to make this sooner. Now I have super soft skin, and I smell like Christmas, what could be better?!
One of the best things that I’ve done this YEAR! Now I can enjoy soft skin all year round, woo hoo!
