Today, I'm talking all about summer beauty for your hair and skin! One of my favorite was to care for my skin is one of my most recent finds. When I was in Georgia visiting my family, my sister convinced me to try her shaving cream concoction. A blend of sugar and coconut oil that she uses it for shaving her legs. I've since whipped it up for myself at home and am using it as not just shaving cream, but a really awesome sugar scrub, too. 

I love using sugar scrubs to combat dry skin. It really helps to buff away those dry flakes and when you use it for shaving, you're just scraping even more away. 

Here's how it works: 

1 cup of coconut oil 
3/4 cup white sugar

Mix together in a container with a lid. A mason jar works perfectly! After a little time in the shower to let your pores open up, rub a small handful in between your palms to melt the oil a bit, then scrub away. When using as a shaving cream, you will have to rinse your razor every few passes from all the dry skin being removed. Just make sure you rinse the shower out well after you're done since it can get a little greasy! 

Now there are some other products I swear by in the summer time! 

Banana Boat Summer Color Self-Tanning Mist
This one isn't just for summer time. I use it all winter long and then just a little in the summer for areas that didn't get so much tan. Like my back. I really need to work on laying on my stomach sometime! 

Mark Hill Fabulous Finish Hair Spray
Y'all, this stuff smells amazing! It keeps a curl in my hair (not easy to do!) but doesn't get it crunchy at all. 

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Lotion
Sunscreen? Shimmer? Lotion? Sold! This sunscreen gives you a little shimmer, while moisturizing, yet not making you look greasy. Win! 

Walgreens has a fantastic assortment of beauty products, perfect for completing your summer beauty collection. Right now, if you spend $20 or more on a beauty or personal care purchase at Walgreens, you'll get a Free travel-size make-up brush set!
