Oh how I love a good body scrub. You can buy great ones at the drugstore or spend $$$ on boutique scrubs from Fresh or Kiehl's, but there's 2 downsides to storebought: you're spending $$ on something that stays on your skin for minutes before hitting the drain and these scrubs are filled with chemicals and preservatives. You can make a simple body scrub using ingredients found in your kitchen.

Sienna Miller stepped out on the red carpet with pink-hued hair the other day that was just absolutely gorgeous. I love this look so much more than the all-over deep pinks we were seeing for awhile. Her hair color was reportedly done by stylist Alex Brownsell of the UK's Bleach London salon (Miller is British). I've seen Sienna Miller in person and she's stunningly gorgeous. She's one of those women who look good in any look.

I love the smell of sweet almond oil so much I have 2 bottles of it crammed into my bathroom. I use it after showers and I love it for giving massages.
So when I came across a recipe for a homemade sweet almond oil body scrub, I had to try it. And then I had to perfect it. This, my friends, is a delightful scrub that is perfect for these winter months when your skin is itchy and dry from furnace heat and the lack of moisture in the air. A good scrub doesn't have to cost $$$, they are the easiest beauty products to make yourself.
