my peeling obsession

OK, I confess. I am a peel-maniac. I own more than 12 of those (in the range from 1 to 50 USD) and I know how to use them :-).

It's clear to me that there is some psychological factor about scrubs, because I definitely use them more when I'm "on the track" (dieting). There si something very attractive about the "peel it off" thing, which relates to pureness and slimness in my eyes. But there are also myths about skin exfoliation (see http://yummy-secrets.blogspot.com/2010/02/dieting-myths-3.html) that are trying to make a magic of something that is just a pretty cool cosmetic... thing.

But anyway - the reason for this post is my today's "bathroom cooking." I found out that a fresh scrub is sooo much more effective and pleasant to use than those in tubes. In the past I used to make it from salt - but those were just too agressive to the skin. So today I made a super sweet one of sugar, olive oil, lemon juice and shower gel. It smells great and works perfectly. Almost like eating a candy :-).


  1. Dear Bay,
    Thank you for following my blog - I'm following you now too! I wanted to respond to your comment on my blog: You are so right! I should have used the "I'm not feeling well" excuse! Lately I am just too quick to get upset and emotional instead of being smart and coming up with excuses.

    Also, that face scrub looks wonderful :)

  2. Thank you.

    Geeez, I KNEW you call it "a scrub" and not "a peeling." Thank you for reminding. :-)

  3. how did you make that? i mean, lol, i know you said whats in it, but was it like a specific scrub, or did you just put stuff together randomly. :P

  4. Quite randomly - that's the fun part :). It just needs to get the "I can stand on a spoon without falling from it" consistency - see the third picture. Not difficult at all :).

  5. Oh wow. I love to cook and this -cooking without food involved- is awesome! Thanks!
