Home made face scrubs for every skin type….

Hello Style Bunnies 🙂

We all know there are a ton of face scrubs out there, but it’s hard to find exactly the right one to fit your skin type. Which means that making a custom one to fit your skin’s needs is the way to go. Plus, you’ll already have half of the ingredients in your kitchen. So why to waste money and spend hours of time in searching the right product. The main advantage of home made fruit scrub is that they don’t have any side effect and you can store them in jar and can use when ever you want.

So lets go through the basic ingredients, what they do and how to make step-by-step. Let’s get started!

First, you’ll need to choose your exfoliant. It comes down to sugar or salt, but as you know there are several varieties of each. You can use four different types: plain white sugar, brown sugar, iodized table salt, and black lava sea salt. Sugar is less abrasive than salt because it dissolves more easily. Brown sugar is the best for sensitive skin, because it’s the softest. Salt exfoliates well and can help remove impurities and dead skin. And the black lava sea salt also removes dead skin along with helping increase cell activity. These all are easily available in market and infact we use it in our kitchen daily.

The next ingredient you select is your oil. There are  five different oils that are great for your skin—olive oil, safflower oil, almond oil, avocado oil, and extra virgin coconut oil . To start off, all of these oils, except the avocado oil, are naturally antibacterial, which will help prevent any problems. Olive oil is good for really dry skin, and it won’t clog your pores. Safflower oil is a fatty oil that can help calm irritated skin and prevent clogged pores. Almond oil is fantastic because it can reduce the effects of UVB rays, and it can help improve skin tone. Avocado oil is actually extracted from the pulp of the fruit—not the seed—so it’s incredibly rich and will help your skin retain moisture. Finally, extra virgin coconut oil is packed with antioxidants and free radicals which help prevent aging. you can easliy get all these oils in any store if you don’t use it in your kitchen. The below image is for reference only. You can use any brand of oil of your choice.

Now you can use one of these five fruits and vegetables. They each have properties that will help your skin even more. Be forewarned that adding in a fresh fruit will reduce the shelf life of your scrub, and you’ll want to keep it in the refrigerator—not your shower.

  • Kiwis can help brighten your complexion, and the seeds in the fruit pulp can act as mini exfoliants on their own.
  • Strawberries are best for evening and brightening your skin tone, and they are packed with vitamin C.
  • Pineapple is best for acne prone skin; it has an enzyme that helps dissolve dead skin cells.
  • Tomato contains lycopene which can help protect skin from UV rays.
  • And finally cucumber can help reduce puffiness by reducing water retention.

Now for storing your scrub buy a plastic container or a jar what ever is available to you.

STEPS:

1.Choose your container, and measure your exfoliant so that the container is 3/4 full.

2.Measure out the olive oil. You’ll want a 2-to-1 ratio. So, twice as much salt as olive oil.

3.Combine olive oil and salt in a bowl, and stir until just combined.

4.Instead of slicing the tomatoes, scoop out the flesh and muddle the mixture together until just combined. You don’t want to mix it too much or the granules will start to dissolve.

5.Decant into your storage container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

It’s okay that this will separate a bit when you store it. Just give it a quick mix before you use it. And remember, keep it in the fridge!
