Seven easy tutorials to help you get rid of cellulite bumps and get those summer proof legs!
It’s had a rough start but spring is finally here. And with those first rays of sunshine out comes that revealing summer wardrobe. Time to delve into my DIY archive and snatch up some of my favorite body loving scrubs, creams and lotions!
Step 1: exfoliate
1. Dry body brushing
Dry body brushing is said to help with a number of skin conditions, from spider veins to dry patches. I particularly love it to work on my KP (those chicken bumps on your arms).
Buy a brush that is specifically designed for dry body brushing. Use all over your body to stimulate blood flow. And always brush towards your heart (Toe to thigh and finger to shoulder). Pay particular attention to your problematic areas.
2. Coco-Coffee Body Scrub
