DIY Body Bronzer

There is nothing like having that sun-kissed, bronzed look during the summer time.  But you don’t have to sit for hours in the hot sun to get that that warm golden look everyone craves. You can create your own bronzer with a just a few simple ingredients you can find in your kitchen. Bronzers are a great way to enhance a natural skin tone or to accent an existing tan. So spare yourself the wrinkles and the sun damage by making your own brozer. I came across this wonderful DIY recipe that I’d like to share.

Here is what you will need:

Cinnamon or Cocoa Powder (depending on desired color)

Empty makeup case (try your local dollar store)


Essential Oil (something light like lavendar)

Cosmetic Brush

Pour both the cinnamon (or cocoa powder) and sugar directly into the case. The ratio of sugar to cinnamon is entirely up to you, depending on how light or dark you prefer your shade.

Mix together the two with your cosmetic brush.

Add a couple drops (just a couple) of your favorite essential oil, and mix in. This will bond the powders together, while imparting a delicious scent.

Sweep bronzer across your face, neck and shoulders for a warm and beautiful bronzed glow.

Pamper Wisely,
