Olive Oil

Tuesday is yoga day at my office. We have an instructor come in who teaches us in a vacant space and it's amazing - I live for Tuesdays.

What I don't love, however, is winter dry skin, or the fact that my feet are starting to look old. You know what they say ... old people feet will get you no play. You've heard that old saying, right?

Anyhoodle, I got the big bright idea last night before I went to teach that I was going to do something about it. And because I am the world's most rational person I thought, "Olive Oil. Yes, Olive Oil. That will do the trick. MWWAAAHHHHAAAAHAAAA."

So I slathered a little on my feet and legs and, hey, instant dry skin treatment. It did attract all sorts of lint to my legs and, sure, I may've slipped a little on the wood floors at the studio and my kitchen at home, but that's a price I'm willing to pay. Snap a hip in exchange for smooth feet? I think the choice is pretty clear.

I did Google, however, and of course this isn't a new concept at all. But I do sorta love the idea of making my own moisturizer with beeswax (where to get, where to get?). Don't tell Aveda.

Oh baby - beeswax comes from bees of course! You might need one of those loverly white jump suits, a bonnet and screening, and of course a can of smoke to get it!

Otherwise, GNC might be your best shopping bet!
