Make Your Own Beauty Scrubs for Mother's Day or Derby Day!

Fox 19 Morning News Beauty Expert is saving you money with homemade gifts for you or someone you love.

By Sheila Gray – bio | email

Just it time for "The Run for the Roses" (KY Derby 5/1) or Mother's day (5/9) we have an idea for a homemade gift from the heart for a special lady or for yourself!   Fox 19 Morning News Beauty Expert Paula Provenzano has been busy in the kitchen, whipping up some great smelling scrubs to smooth the skin.

Paula says, "I whipped some up and it's really easy—the base is the same for all of them so, kids could even do it.  Now, I don't normally like to do "kitchen chemist" segments because I want to promote spa industry products but, this was so easy and, honestly, its not likely to bankrupt any businesses.
 
Check out the video of Paula's demonstration with me on the Fox 19 Morning News on Thursday, April 29, and here's the recipe:
