Pineapple and papayas are not only delicious to eat, but the juice from both are a natural exfoliant.
- 1/4 cup of cubed fresh pineapple, the hard stems cut off and discarded
- 1/4 cup of cubed fresh papaya.
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp sweet almond oil
- 1 tbsp manuka honey (or regular honey if you don’t have manuka).
Mash the fruit together until it’s in a pulp. Add the other ingredients and combine well.
How To Use
Apply mixture to skin and leave on for a few minutes. Rinse with warm water and press skin with a warm washcloth (my favorite part of a mask or scrub).
Apply moisturizer to cleansed skin.
The Benefits of Exfoliation
Use this scrub once or twice a week to keep your skin in tip-top shape. It’s important year-round to exfoliate both your face and your body, but I find in winter it’s even more important.
