|Written by Andrea Manitsas|
Body care is about much more than the pursuit of deliciously gorgeous skin. It's about self-love, nurturing and pampering yourself. It's even about connecting to yourself and your body. When you handcraft our do-it-yourself recipes from completely natural and organic, healthful ingredients - and then use them (or gift them to loved ones) - you and your body will feel cared for.
When you think of body oil, perhaps a greasy massage comes to mind, or some otherwise well - oily - experience. But in fact, body oils added to a luxurious bath and/or applied to the skin, just after bathing (and towel drying), can be rubbed in flawlessly for a nourishing and moisturizing effect that is anything but greasy. Your skin will look healthy; not like you're priming for the slip 'n slide. And, you'll find you get a much smoother result than from lotions and creams.
Taking price, time and effort into consideration - whilst not skimping on thoughtfulness - we bring you something so sublimely sweet you'll want to rub it all over your body. And by all means, please do! This brown sugar body scrub and polish creates a sumptuous take-the-spa-home experience... and can make the perfect gift for couples with instructions on how to lovingly give your partner a sexy scrub down... not that they'll need them.
The day has had her way with you: The seemingly endless parade of rubbernecking, power tripping, inconsiderate and needy people to have crossed your path has left you feeling cold, stiff, negative and wound up like a toy soldier. Well, I've done the research personally, as have many before me, and nothing soothes the soul like a warm, nurturing bath. Pampering yourself with one of these homemade, DIY bath recipes will remind you; one very important person loves and cares for you, ultimately the only one who matters.
Skin care treatments in the store have two things going against them: They're expensive and full of mystery ingredients. If you're looking for a natural, inexpensive way to get your body more bikini-ready, check out this healthy, DIY anti-cellulite tincture recipe, complete with treatment instructions. Look good and feel good!
The awesomeness of avocados cannot be overstated. Truly. What's not so awesome - however - is dry, cracked, scaly and painful skin.
