Feeling those winter blues? Us too. We all reach a point in July where that summer glow on your skin has pretty much faded and the fact you’ve “forgotten” to shave your legs for the last few weeks becomes a real indication that you might be ready for a “winter blitz”. A “winter blitz” could be seen as a “spring clean” but with a little twist. As with Spring, winter is associated with its social cues and typical fashion but for some reason, looking after ourselves (and our homes!) in Winter can be a little bit harder when we don’t want to get out of bed and we want to consume all things pastry. Alas, we’ve got a few little tips up our sleeves to get that blood moving and get you ready for the impending summer.
They say “summer bodies are made in winter”. We say, look after yourself and your home all year round to ensure a healthy happy lifestyle.
Our first little tip to get you grooving is a Coffee Coconut Scrub. Starting the day with this baby will not only invigorate that dry skin winter has so lovingly bestowed upon you, but smells so good that you’ll feel alive and ready to hit the day running. It’s also so cost effective that you’ll probably never go back back to store bought again.
Grab yourself some jars and get ready for a toxic free, cellulite zapping shower. Sounds fabulous right?
½ cup organic ground coffee
½ cup organic coconut palm sugar
¼ cup organic coconut oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and store in an airtight container. If your coconut oil is hard, just leave it out until it softens at room temperature.
Do not melt and add the other ingredients as they will dissolve.
