“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, mashedPlace 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 …
