Day 1 Eliminate and Enhance: Brighten and Refresh

Hi! My friend Ashlee Buchert and I have teamed up to combine fitness and beauty for a five day “Eliminate and Enhance” challenge!  I will be posting the “Enhance” part here. If there are any of you out there reading this and you want to be a part of the whole challenge, let me know and I’ll get you involved!

Before we can get into makeup and hair tips, it’s important to start with the basics! A clean, fresh face and scalp, and healthy hair.  That’s why day one is going to help heal your scalp, especially if you suffer from dryness.  While you are conditioning your scalp, you can try this fun sugar scrub to brighten and exfoliate your face.  A clean, healthy base is going to do more for your natural beauty than any magical tip or trick can do!

Lemon scalp treatment:

2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 Tablespoons coconut oil (liquid, or slightly heated to soften) you may also substitute olive oil

2 Tablespoons water

Mix together and massage well into damp scalp.  Let it sit for 15-20 minutes, then rinse and shampoo.

Sugar face scrub:

1 1/2 Tablespoons sour cream

1/2 Cup white sugar

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1/4 Cup ground almonds

1 Tablespoon olive oil

Mix all ingredients together and gently scrub your face.  Rinse with water.  Make sure to use sunscreen to protect your fresh skin and help it continue to look its best!

Enjoy!

    I am really excited to try these out. Just a couple question, is there something that you could sub for the sour cream? (I would hate to buy a thing of it and have it go to waste for only using 1 1/2 tbls) also how long does it stay good for? Thank you, you are amazing!!
