Bite It/Blog It and Homemade Body Polish

Well, last night was not a good eating night.  I overate at the family cookout, waaaay overate, and then I got home and Matt and I got into some chips and the leftover dip I had made.  I went to bed full and I hate that feeling.  I slept AWFUL.

Rebecca encouraged me not to be embarrassed to take pictures, and I’m going to try!  Every time I don’t take pictures I seem to fall off the wagon.  So this week, I’m challenging myself to photograph EVERYTHING and see if it makes a difference in my eating.  I’m fairly certain it will!  That’s my goal for this week, no real eating restrictions but BITE IT/BLOG IT.   I realize when I am not blogging about my food, my thoughts of nutrition and food quality go out the door. 

So, due to lack of food pictures from last night I decided to write about an amazing homemade body polish. This beauty tip was featured in this month’s issue of Self Magazine.

Get Even  For skin that’s hit a rough patch, smooth scaly areas with a natural concoction from Hema Sundaram, M.D., a dermatologist in Washington, D.C.  Mix a cup each of sea salt (to cleans), cornmeal (to exfoliate) and olive oil (to hydrate), then rub it all over your body. 

I was hooked when I read this! I had all the ingredients in my kitchen to do this, and the results….AMAZING!!!!  I thought a cup of each ingredient was too much….I did a 1/4 cup of each and that worked better for me.  This stuff made my skin feel so smooth. I even put it on my face and that worked really well…it was a great exfoliant!

I give this mixture an A++!   And it will be added 2 times a week into my skin care routine!  Thank you Self Magazine!!!
It lookes like an expensive sugar scrub!
