The story behind the DIY Lemon Scrub

My family and I have routine group chats via text message.  One of them was about my attempt at using tanning clothes unsupervised.  I got the idea from my mom who has used them in the past, leaving her with sun kissed legs for the day. This lead me to believe it can’t be that difficult and that I should try them out. A few hours after using the clothes my legs looked like Tony the Tiger.  I’ll admit it, I was a hot mess.

During our family chat my sister used the line from  Wedding Planner, ” quarter cup of lemon juice, half a cup of salt,…scrub scrub scrub.”  At that moment my life became a movie scene. So awesome! I cracked up and decided she may be onto something, hence the Do It Yourself lemon scrub recipe I recently posted.

What have we learned from this story ladies and gentlemen? Exfoliate before using tanning products, tanning wipes are not as easy as they seem and sometimes advice from movies are actually spot on.  🙂  Now go and enjoy the rest of your week and if you are as pasty as I am try and embrace it, tony the tiger legs are not that sexy.

  • 1 cup of olive oil
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon zest
  • 1 mason jar, a pint size will work best
