Alas this is the final week of filming Chicago PD and the wrap party is this Saturday. I didn’t realize until just recently that my skin has been in hibernation mode this entire winter, staying warm and thoroughly bundled underneath layers of tights, long-underwear, thermals, sweaters, hoodies, jeans, boots, and coats. While I definitely have been taking great care in keep my skin hydrated during this miserable polar vortex, the weather is slowly creeping into the average range here in Chicago and with this wrap party coming up I need to not look like a pastey, lumpy mess. I have been working out and trying to stick to my plan with Weight Watchers and I definitely notice results, but my thighs still aren’t where I want them to be. My friend and co-worker suggest I use a Coffee Bean Scrub. I came across the following recipe on Bellasugar.com:
1 cup coffee grounds
1/2 cup white or brown sugar
1 cup coconut oil
Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly. After you’ve washed your hair and body, massage the scrub on wet skin and rinse with warm water. Your skin will be soft, hydrated, and ready to be bared in your favorite warm-weather ensembles.
Now, I can’t expect my cellulite to completely disappear, but I can at least give this a try with reducing its appearance :)
I also know that I have to have a nice glow. Sunkissed, just without the sun. I do not do tanning salons or spray tans, but now with the aisles filled with a various array of self tanners, I think I might give that a go. I love Jergens’ brand for my daily lotion (I use their shea butter lotion religiously). After doing a quick Google search for the best self tanners for brown skin, I came across O’s Guide to the Best Self-Tanning Products on Oprah.com, and Jergens’ Natural Glow Express was declared as the “Most Exciting Update”. Apparently it works in the same way as their original Natural Glow system, but in half the time. Perfect!
I’m excited to get started with trying both today. Do you have any quick and easy skin tips for me that I should try before this wrap party on Saturday? Let me know in the comments below.
Love & Share.
