I wanted to try out the St. Tropez tanning products, but I’ve been too scared to be a streaky, mess and have had it stored in my cabinet for months. In typically “Whitney fashion” I researched a ton before making the tanning plunge and word on the street is exfoliating is critical.
Of course I decided I was “ready” when I was fresh out of body scrub, so I took to my kitchen to figure out a home remedy… introduce, Whitney’s DIY Coffee Body Scrub:
- 1/2 cup ground coffee
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup raw sugar
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Use scrub in the shower… it’s going to make a mess!
- Massage onto wet skin in circular motions.
- Rinse (you may need to use a little soap, because the coconut oil resulted in WAY too many coffee grounds being stuck to my skin).
I then used the St. Tropez tanning lotion and couldn’t be happier! I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without trying it! No smell, no streaking (use their glove!), and a really nice, natural glow – February can’t get me down!
