No one wants to be neither crusty nor dusty so whip out some brown sugar, coconut oil, and lemon for this awesome DIY lip scrub.

Winter has passed so the crust and dryness isn’t as real, however, dead skin is always accumulating on the body so it is always great to exfoliate especially on the lips. Just take some brown sugar and any oil of your choice, preferably olive or coconut oil, squeeze in some lemon juice and mix it up. Use this cool concoction to scrub those dead skin cells away form your lips, apply some moisturizing lip balm and your good to go!

Yes, armpits, and elbows need care too!

 These parts of the body always tend to be darker than others. If you are bothered by  uneven skin tone, take some of the magic spice called turmeric, mix it with plain Greek yogurt and rub this along your pits, elbows, and knees.  Leave it on for ten minutes and do this consistently through out the week to see lighter results!

Everybody wants radiant glowy skin especially for the summer months. A cool affordable mask that I created for achieving amazing radiant skin is The Aloe Vera/ Lemon mask.

First, I take an organic Aloe Vera leaf and use the innards as a base for the mask. I then add in honey and lemon juice to the concoction. These ingredients have amazing antioxidants, antibacterial and lightening properties leading to achieving an even skin tone. If you suffer form acne marks, this mask perfect for you.

Leave this on your face for about 20 minutes after you have exfoliated. Do this two-three times a week and you should see results in about three weeks!
