Today is a little bit different from the usual "Friday Five" that I do, because I wanted to share one of my latest DIY projects. I am all about natural products, as I have mentioned about 400 times, but I know sometimes they can be overpriced, especially if it is a 'fad' product (e.g coconut oil hair mask, charcoal face mask etc).
I am a serial fake tanner, I absolute hate being white because I feel like I need to be injected with 2 litres of blood. Whenever I have a fake tan, I feel so much more summery and confident, plus it's a much safer way than toasting my skin under the sun. In order to have a really nice, even fake tan that doesn't have blotches that make you look like a giraffe, you need to give your skin a good scrub and exfoliate. Enter my latest DIY job. Coffee scrubs... they are every where and so damn expensive. But they don't have to be. I made my own and oh mannnnn does it smell good!! Like a delicious cappuccino, with extra yumminess! Not to mention, it's so easy... like fool proof easy. I have a lot of blonde moments and tend to be abit uncoordinated, but I managed to do this and it worked out perfectly.
So here is what you need:
- 1.5 Cups of Epsom Salt
- 3/4 cup ground coffee
- 3/4 cup melted coconut oil (try to get a nice brand if you can, one that isn't processed)
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract.
So what you do is grab a nice jar (I grabbed this one for $2 at Kmart), whack all your ingredients in and stir stir stir. Then sniff... it smells AMAZING. Plus, it feels so nice when you have a shower and really gets off all that excess tan and dead skin you have on your body!
If you like these DIY kind of posts, let me know because I have a stack of things I want to try out and would love to share.
