DIY Skin Soother
For a make-it-yourself body-smoother, whip up this coconut treatment from Jennifer Yen, the creator of the Pur-Lisse skin-care line. In a bowl, mix together ½ cup ground rice (you can use a blender to grind), ½ cup coconut milk, ¼ cup brown sugar, and 1½ tablespoons freshly grated ginger. Stir until the ingredients form a paste, then smooth it over your entire body using circular motions. Rinse in the shower, then slather on moisturizer.
