I love when women share beauty secrets.
Sometimes I’m not sure they really are secrets, or just tips, because I feel there are few “secrets” out there when it comes to beauty.
But today I will tell you a few of mine.
I remember being a poor college student and my room mate coming home with this wonderful body scrub from Origins. At $30, this was a fortune to me living at poverty level. It smelled amazing and it was love at first sight. If I secretly used it when she wasn’t home I don’t recall.
You see apricot facial scrub and I just got finished talking about body scrub. Read on…
If any of you are using any brand of apricot scrub as a facial scrub, STOP. The jagged edges from the apricot pieces make microscopic tears on your face and can cause infections. It may seem it’s working, that your skin glows but in reality your first layer of skin has been scrubbed off.
So use it as a body scrub! You don’t need to spend $30 for a great scrub that does the same things. Like unclog pores and exfoliate dry skin. This scrub leaves my skin smooth and ready for my self tanning lotion! For $2.69 you can buy an inexpensive but wonderful and effective body scrub in an apricot facial scrub! I bought this one at Target.
I love Jergens Natural Glow in the winter months. If gives me the color I need for my pale skin. But I love using this in the summer even more!
The secret is using it only on your arms and legs; and sparingly on your neck and chest area. As in other self-tanning products, this doesn’t have a strong smell, if any, depending on your nose. It’s light in color and I’ve never had any streaking or spotting. I love using this in the summer to maintain my tan. Because my skin is very fair, I use the fair to medium tint to give me the perfect glow.
I wouldn’t call this a “secret” just more of a tip. It seems with other “like” products the ingredients are extremely harsh. With this product you really have nothing to lose. Its inexpensive and easy. No gloves, mits or sprays, no rubbing off on your clothes. Although you just can’t escape a smell with any self-tanning product, in Jergens it is barely there.
I HIGHLY recommend this moisturizer. I truly love it. And my tan might just be ready for the medium to dark….
Hope you enjoyed my tips/secrets this week! Let me know if you have any requests to show a product.
