I’m not a fan of dry skin at all. I don’t think that anyone is, am I right? That’s why I absolutely love sugar scrubs and feeling the gritty sugar sloughing away all the dead skin and leaving behind smooth, clean skin. It’s refreshing! The worst is when it’s winter, and you might be dealing with a head cold and need some relief not only from dry, winter skin but also sinus pressure and congestion. Eucalytpus is known to help, so instead of just slathering on a rub, why not do double-duty and soften your skin at the same time?
The ingredients for this scrub are very easy, and your grittiness is determind by how much sugar you use. I do 1 cup of soft coconut oil to 1 cup of sugar. Adding more sugar will yield a thicker, grittier scrub that’s good for dry heels, knees and elbows.
For this particular recipe, I used:
10 drops of Eucalyptus oil
the zest of one red grapefruit.
Combine thoroughly and store in air tight jar for no more than 1 week.
Something else I can’t stand is shaving. Before I use any of my sugar scrubs, I shave. It not only gets rid of body hair, but also helps start to get the layer of dead and dry skin removed. A never-so-quick shave and a sugar scrub are a great way to refresh and feel better about yourself.
If you’re anything like me though, shaving is never an enjoyable experience. Someone knocks on the door, the email keeps going off, you’re running late, etc etc. I can’t remember a time I’ve gone to do my shave and sugar scrub routine and NOT been interrupted. But I think I have a solution. It’s called the Flash&Go.
Now, it’s not an instant solution. After several uses of the Flash&Go, you’ll start to see results of hair removal. That just means that the time investment now is going to lead to less shaving in the future – and more reason to keep skin looking soft and healthy!
Not only does it come with written instructions, it comes with a DVD. I don’t even think it’s needed, it’s so easy to use. If you have light to medium skin and dark hair, it will work best for you. Imagine the places you won’t have to shave anymore: armpits, legs, arms, bikini. And men can use it too, so it’s not just a feminine hygiene tool!

I found the Flash&Go at Kohl’s, right by the jewelry and purses. I suggest looking there first for these “endcap” displays, and then heading to the beauty department and the electronic/gadget/small appliance sections. And don’t be afraid to ask an employee if you can’t find it!
