Corn Sand Body Polish

Mother's Day is right around the corner. My idea of the perfect mom gift is a little spa pampering, and if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you probably saw that I treated myself to a quick pedicure. Busy moms rarely have time (or cash) for a full-fledged trip to the spa, so I thought today would be a great day to share an at-home spa recipe.



The cornmeal gives this concoction its yellow hue and provides healthy exfoliation delivered in a rich cream of fresh yogurt to nourish and brighten, while honey is a humectant, drawing moisture to your skin.

3 TBS Plain Yogurt
2 TBS Cornmeal
2 tsp Honey
3 drops of Lemon or Orange Essential Oil (optional)


:: Thoroughly mix all the ingredients.
:: Vigorously apply over body, avoiding face (cornmeal is too rough for delicate facial skin).
:: Focus your scrubbing on rough patches like elbows, knees and heals
:: Remove with warm water and a washcloth or shower off.

Best to make just enough to use right away as this mixture doesn’t keep.
