Instead of thick creams, which are no fun in the summer, try using a light oil instead. My favorite oil is Home Health Almond Glow with Coconut. It smells great and the bottle will last you a long time since you only need about a dime sized amount. Gently rub the oil in small circular motions. Leave a little not rubbed in so that it will continue to soak into your skin overnight.
Do you have any tried and true, all natural recipes that you would like to share? I would love to hear of your alternatives for buying anything that you need in the bathroom! Feel free to leave any comments, questions, or links.
