Create a Sexy DIY Body Shimmer with These Simple Ingredients

Body shimmer products are all the rage right now, mainly because of the sexy glow that they give your skin as your body hits the sunlight, as if you’re an illuminated goddess. Body shimmers are often seen on the parading bodies of celebrities at the most glamorous red carpet events. Even our astonishing superstar Rihanna introduced a stunning body shimmer (dubbed body lava by herself) as a part of her Fenty Beauty collection. A product with such an exotic and sumptuous outcome can often be pricey. That’s where the magical world of DIY comes crashing in to save you some bucks yet again.

Behold, a DIY body shimmer made from inexpensive products that you, a devoted beauty enthusiast who’s eager to save money, have laying around in your home. Body shimmers are almost essential for the tank top days out in the sun, sun bathing your soul away by the pool, or the beach days that you’ve longed for all year long. Gather these ingredients, followed by some inexpensive tools for your very own body shimmer.

  1. Take the top off of your bottle and insert the funnel.
