Bringing sexy back:  Erika Katz, beauty expert and author of Bonding Over Beauty, has created a do-it-yourself Brown Sugar Scrub with fall ingredients to remove the flaky layers and add shine to the skin.  Since I receive tons of recipes each week, I typically skip sharing most of them but this one I had to share.  Food + Glowing Skin sounds right up my alley.

Erika Katz’s DIY Brown Sugar Scrub


  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of almond oil or olive oil
  • 5 drops of honey
  • 3 to 5 drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)

To Make:

Mix ingredients thoroughly in a glass bowl. Use the scrub all over the body and rinse well with warm water. The brown sugar scrub is wonderful to use all over the body, especially on your face, hands, and feet.

Love. This. So. Simple.
