In less than one week we will officially be entering Autumn. I have to admit, it is already getting pretty chilly her in New England, but I can tell Mother Nature is having a hard time with it. One day it will be 58 degrees, and the next 89. While some people may enjoy the fluctuations, it is wreaking havoc on my skin. My body does not know weather to sweat or shed the old skin from my summer tan so right now it is in that lackluster stage.
Right now, you can Save on Vaseline, St. Ives and Dove at Walgreens this fall. These lotions are ideal for locking in moisture after a scrub, and smell fabulous! Save $1.50 on any ONE (1) Vaseline (clip to card), St. Ives, or Dove lotion (6.5oz to 21oz). Excludes trial and travel sizes. Coupon is available now- 11/26/16. On a recent trip to Walgreens, I stocked up on lotions and picked up some St. Ives Collagen Elastin Lotion, Dove Extra Strength Lotion, and Vaseline Cocoa Radiance lotions. Perfect for locking in that moisture I totally need!
My knees, elbows, and hands were so dry from all the hand washing and showers I take. Going to the gym is great for releasing stress, and exercise but the sweat is not so good for skin. I have been meaning to buy some full body scrub, but decided why not make my own? Since I love to bake, I had all the ingredients for a DIY Oatmeal Brown Sugar Body Scrub. Plus, a scrub to exfoliate my skin before moisturizing with the new lotions I picked up at Walgreens was great.
So a bath it was. When I do a full body scrub I like to take a bath because it allows my skin to soak. When you soak your skin, it is so much easier to exfoliate with a loofah and the oatmeal and sugar blend. This recipe is best for one use so feel free to apply it liberally or share it with your husband or even kids since it has natural ingredients. It might clog the drain if you leave the oats whole so please be sure to grind them up finely.
DIY Oatmeal Brown Sugar Body Scrub
- 3/4 cup of ground oats *not too fine
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1/4 cup of milk
Grind your oats until semi-ground *you do not want them too fine or they will not scrub as well
Once oats are ground up, add them, the sugar, milk and honey to a bowl and mix them up.
Place them in a jar and use them up the same day. I find if I try to keep them they turn back into gummy oatmeal. This recipe makes a good amount to get your whole body and then some. I suggest sharing the recipe with a family member, or slightly adjusting it to less.
