“Oatmeal, Almond & Avocado Body Scrub”

 

For those who remember my article “The Little Black Dress,” this body scrub is a “must do” before slipping into anything for an evening’s rendezvous.  Rest assured, results will “bedazzle” anyone you’re hoping to bedazzle.

½ cup almonds / 1 cup dry oatmeal / 1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, mashed

Place almonds in a blender or coffee grinder and grind (not too fine).  Lightly grind oatmeal and combine with almonds.  Using a bath glove “smear” the avocado all over your body, and using the bath glove, apply the almond / oatmeal mixture in a scrubbing motion (as though sanding a piece of wood).  For an additional benefit, leave the mixture on for a few minutes to create a “body mask,” allowing the skin to absorb its nutrients.  Rinse off (using bath gloves if needed).  If additional moisturizing is needed follow with a luscious moisturizer http://mountain-spirit-botanicals.com/bath-body/moisturizers and by all means, go bedazzle …
