Homemade Whipped Brown Sugar Body Scrub

This stuff is delicious. Okay, it isn't. It tastes terrible. But that's because it's for the shower.

Here in the Frozen North, it is colder than the dickens and dryer than the Sahara. That means my hands look like hell and my skin is itchy. Do you have pregnancy stretch marks? Good, you are among friends. Stretch marks seem to itch in dry weather. This definitely helps.

Make up a batch of this and scrub away on dry skin. You will be naked and sticky, kind of like a porno. Whoa! Did I just blog that out loud? Geez Whitney. Anyways, rinse and then be sure to slather on some major lotion afterwards. Your skin will be thirsty for the moisture.

1 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of baby oil
1/4 cup of Ivory liquid hand soap
1/4 tsp of vanilla

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk until brown sugar is not longer lumpy. Store in a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid. Stir before using. Some of the sugar will settle at the bottom. Scrub away when your skin reminds you of an elephant.

Rookie's Notes
: This stuff is an immediate use type of thing. I wouldn't let it sit for more than a day before using it.
