Pamper Your Legs at Home!

Need some pampering, but can’t find the time or cash to spare?
You don’t have to make an appointment at the spa. Just hop in the kitchen and grab a few staples!
With just 3 simple ingredients you can make your own exfoliating scrub.  And your legs will feel so soft and smooth,  you’ll swear off any future trips to the professionals!
Silky Smooth Summertime Legs
Ingredients:
1 1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup oil (I used coconut oil, but you can use baby oil, canola oil, or even honey)
3 tbsp citrus (lemon or lime juice)
*Mix the ingredients together in a bowl. Soak your legs in warm water for 5 minutes (or more if the kids won’t bother you). Shave your legs…you may need a couple of disposable razors because they are going to become dull quickly with all the dead skin and dirt. Massage the mixture into your skin. I rubbed it in especially well at all my “dry” spots…knees, ankles, heels. Rinse and then shave again. I used one disposable razor per leg…that’s how dull they got! Reapply the mixture to your legs and rub! Rinse again. You may want to use a dollop of liquid soap to cut the oily feel.
Towel dry and then apply your favorite lotion. You will have the silkiest, softest legs ever! Enjoy!
Thanks to Only the Fit Survive for the recipe!

  1. I keep a mason jar of organic cane sugar, coconut oil, and lavender EO in my shower to use as a shaving lotion and a gentle skin exfoliation. Don’t you just love how food not only nourishes the insides but also the outsides? =)

  2. I love to pamper myself with homemade beauty products so your sugar scrub recipe was such a pleasure to see! I made a brown sugar and olive oil scrub recently and it was heavenly! It’s so great to get a chance to discover and explore your blog.
    Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful post on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop! I appreciate it!
    All the best, Deborah

      Brown sugar and olive oil sounds divine! Thank you for stopping in too. I’ll be back to visit Urban Naturale for certain!

  3. I LOVE sugar scrubs and I’m guessing that this one smells divine! Commercial varieties are so expensive … I love the idea of making my own. Not only are they inexpensive but I know exactly what’s in them … no toxic chemicals included!! Thanks for sharing!
