Silky Summer Legs

Holy Cow. I can't even begin to describe to you how smooth my legs are. I honestly can't stop touching them. After seeing this shaving sugar scrub on Pinterest, I decided I should give it a whirl. Having soft, smooth skin is one of those things in life that I strive for. I lotion, I exfoliate, I massage- anything to have deliciously touchable skin. This sugar scrub makes every attempt before look like child's play. Here's what you do:

Combine 1 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup oil (I used olive, but use whatever!) and 3 Tablespoons lemon juice.

Hop in the tub and let your legs soak for a few minutes. Shave.

Massage the sugar scrub onto one of your legs for about a minute. Rinse, then shave again. Pay attention to your razor head, because it's about to get all sorts of gunky. Exfoliating with the scrub loosens up all the dead skin and dirt, and the 2nd shave will get all of that nastiness off your legs. Once you're done shaving, rub the scrub on once more, then rinse and repeat on other leg. Go ahead and apply a little bit of lotion afterwards if desired, though I would recommend against anything with shimmer, tanner, or fragrance.

I won't lie to ya- I used this scrub on my entire body, anywhere that I could reach. I was a little worried that exfoliating, shaving, and exfoliating again would cause a lot of irritation (especially since I have fairly sensitiv skin) but my legs have never felt better- no itch, no burn, no bumps...just silky smooth skin.
