Apparently watching Made in Chelsea makes me say things like “au natural.” I’ve come to the conclusion that no matter the similarities, when you compare The Hill and MiC, the British accent, and saying “En Route” instead of “on our way” adds class EVERY time, and couldn’t be more jealous, but I digress.
The other night I sat around catching up (read: watching every episode available ondemand) on the show, I found myself googling ways to shake my dry and dull winter skin before it got scary. It turns out, the ingredients I needed were handily in my cluttered, dirty little kitchen cabinet. I scooped them up, reminded myself to clean out my cabinets yet again, and got to work.
Mix 3 parts honey, to one part olive oil and add enough sugar to give the scrub the consistency of…well, a scrub. It’s not complicated, I swear. Don’t make the mix too oily or it will slide right off your moneymaker, and don’t make it too honeylicious, or it will be impossible to spread. It’s trial and error, go with the flow!
The honey in the scrub will draw out the impurities in your skin and nix any nagging city scum sitting on top of your pores. The sugar acts as mother nature’s sweet little exfoliant, scrubbing your skin without tearing or dragging. The olive oil continues it’s act as basically the most versatile and beneficial ingredient known to mankind and leaves you supple and smooth. The best part is that these ingredients very likely exist right under your clever little nose, so take the hike to your kitchen, attack with a spoon and slather on your face.
