It seems as though JUICY 🥤 is the “word of the day” at this time for our skin! Social media, magazines, celebrities and shopping channels tout it as something we need to attain. But I’m a bit confused.
I don’t know about you but I’m not sure why we want it. Nor how we get “juicy skin”
I love healthy looking pretty skin and enjoy the rituals for taking care of my skin. But coveting “juicy” is not one I necessarily want.
However I do love juicing and the fun pretty potions I can create and whip up in what I husband calls… “My Beauty Kitchen”
I make them with all kinds of fruits, veggies, and even herbs. So delicious! Whether I want something fruity, very veggie or for a burst of energy you can make some awesome drinks. Including something sweet!
This afternoon I made a yummy and bodacious …
“Banana 🍌 Split” … not what you may think. No ice cream and no cherry on top.
What you will need for this recipe:
2 fresh ripe bananas
1 1/2 cups of coconut milk
1 teaspoon of maple syrup or agave nectar
4-5 ice cubes, crushed
Place the above in a blender. Mix it until smooth, creamy and dreamy!
*Sprinkle coconut 🥥 flakes on top!
Add a mini drink umbrella & festive paper straw if you’d like.
Enjoy this cooling and refreshing milkshake like smoothie! Great for your sweetie or the whole family.
I feel like TRAVELING and enjoying life again… I want to go on a cruise! But since we can’t quite do that yet I thought I’d do the next best thing. Make a tropical hand and foot scrub.
Since I LOVE my clients. I am sharing this recipe with them and giving them some mini sample jars of this lovely scrub too.
If you own a business do you love to share recipes and beauty tips with your clients too?
Here is a simple recipe that is so easy to make yet gently exfoliates, brightens the skin and makes the skin so silky!
After all it is sandal season again.
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup of brown sugar (sometimes I add a few rolled oats for visual fun)
Some lime zest
1 mason or jam jar
I LOVE the way this feels on the skin and my heels will look amazing too.
It even refreshes a pedicure and manicure too. Give your hands and feet some love ❤️. Guys will love it too!
Simply apply a scoop of this tropical 🌴 delight on your freshly washed hands and rub in. Go in circular motions. Then rinse with a wet and warm hand towel after leaving on at least 10 minutes.
Next apply to your feet and repeat.
I find this scrub lasts at least a week. I put it in the fridge. I pull out of the fridge and allow it to warm with the room temperature. Feels so cool and refreshing when you apply it. Especially on a hot summer 🌞 day.
Your skin will glow and the natural ingredients make it even better!
