For most people cool weather = dry skin. Dry skin = bad news. Sugar scrubs are one of my favorite dry skin remedies because they smell heavenly and make my skin feel incredibly smooth. To celebrate the start of the cool-weather seasons, aka FALL YA’LL, here is a recipe for pumpkin vanilla sugar scrub! It layers vanilla scrub with vanilla-pumpkin scrub to create a “candy corn” look. What could be more festive than that?

Ingredients

  • Vanilla Sugar Scrub
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vanilla- Pumpkin Sugar Scrub
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 1/2 cup coconut oil
    • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
    • Optional: red and yellow liquid food coloring

Vanilla Sugar Scrub:

Heat the coconut oil on the stove until it is melted. Add in the vanilla extract and stir until fully combined. Add vanilla and coconut mixture to the sugar and stir.

Vanilla-Pumpkin Sugar Scrub:

Heat the coconut oil on the stove until it is melted. Add in the spices and vanilla, and stir until fully combined. Add the liquid to the sugar and stir it together. Right now the mixture will be a light brown color. Divide it into two bowls for coloring if you want it to look like candy corn!

  • To create the yellow layer
    • 4 drops of yellow food coloring
  • To create the orange layer
    • 4 drops of yellow and 3 drops of red for the red layer.
    • No worries, this amount of food coloring will not color your skin!

Scrub that dry skin away, and smell like a pumpkin pie while doing it. I call that a win-win. 😉

XOXO, Chels

I love going and getting a facial. They are so relaxing, and so good for your skin! The bummer is that they are typically expensive, which means I can’t get them as often as I would like. I asked the facial technician if there was anything I can do at home to help keep my skin clear and healthy in-between facials, and she said that it is so important to exfoliate. She told me that it doesn’t have to be expensive, it can be as simple as using baking soda! So when I got home, I did some research and found an awesome tutorial for a simple and healthy face exfoliant. This scrub cleans your skin, kills bacteria, and clears the dirt and dead skin from your pores. Plus the ingredients are really commonly used, so you probably have them sitting around your house right now! Here is how to make it:

        1 tablespoon coconut oil

        1 teaspoon baking soda

        (optional) 5 drops essential oils

Take the coconut oil in a medium sized bowl and melt it a bit if it is solid. Add baking soda slowly and stir it until it is well mixed. Finally, add essential oil and stir again. To use this scrub, take a teaspoon of it and gently scrub it on your face for about 30 seconds, then rinse it off.

This scrub not only fights acne, but it can also help reduce acne scarring by removing the layers of scarred skin over time! I love using natural products on my face, don’t you?

XOXO,

Odds are, everyone has a jar of Vaseline under their sink right now. I was recently reading an article online about the many beauty uses of Vaseline and I was blown away! Who knew this stuff wa
s so handy? Here are my top 6 favorite beauty uses for Vaseline.

  1. Great lip balm for chapped lips. Don’t have chapstick laying around? Grab a swipe of Vaseline and rub it on your lips!
  2. Eyebrow gel. Use a small bit of Vaseline to tame your brows instead of buying expensive brow gel.
  3. Makeup remover. This stuff cuts through makeup like a champ! Take a little bit and rub it in circles on your face to work it into your makeup. Then wipe off with a paper towel or damp cloth.
  4. Keeps your perfume lasting longer. Apply Vaseline to the same areas of skin that you spray perfume before you spray it. It helps your perfume maintain it’s scent for longer!
  5. Homemade scrub: Mix Vaseline with sugar or sea salt to make a homemade exfoliant!
  6. Preps your lips for lipstick. Put some Vaseline on your lips, leave for a few minutes, then scrub your lips with a toothbrush. Rinse it off and see how soft they are!

I have also found that when I have super dry and scaly skin, I can rub some Vaseline on it and it is a great moisturizer. This stuff is so useful, so if you don’t already have a tub of it on hand I recommend grabbing some!

Do you use Vaseline in your beauty routine? If so, comment below and tell me how! I love hearing about new beauty remedies.
