Kinley LITE theme on urbanburbian - by the burbs, for the burbs
there’s a whole lotta fun new beauty products coming out right now and the impending arrival of summer has me yearning for something other than a ‘cubicle tan.’ how, oh how, can i highlight my pale skin and mermaid hair? i think these might do the trick…
Get 1/4 cup of coarse sugar. If you don’t have coarse sugar you can use brown sugar or salt but I find that the chunkier sugars make a huge difference and you can now find it at almost any store in the baking section.
Half a lemon.
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil.
I’m obsessed with adding Josie Maran’s “Balance” Argan Oil because it smells like fresh cut roses but you can use olive oil, jojoba oil, vitamin e oil or anything you feel has great skin benefits. There are so many and all are great for different reasons.
Mix it all together in a small bowl until the coconut oil chunks have disappeared. Once it’s done it should be a creamy consistency. Scrub your hands with this for 2 minutes and rinse with luke-warm water (No soap!). Allow the remaining oils to stay on your hands and soak in. Pat your hands dry with a towel.
If you have any left over (which I never have because I always do my hands and feet), you can put plastic-wrap over it and save it in the fridge for a couple days.
Since I got muy bueno results the last time I did an outfit of the day, here’s one for today! Pants are Target, tank is Target, jean button down is Marshall’s, necklace is my own, and you can’t see them but the shoes are my tan work boots! Each piece was only $15, and the pants are reversible so I get double wear out of them. Also, camo is a big thing now I guess? I’m finding it all over now!
