3. Rice Powder And Honey Scrub:
I guess I can’t stop writing about the goodness of rice. I believe rice is the best beauty ingredient that I have ever come across. As mentioned earlier I use this as homemade toner or as a facemask. So I thought why not to try as body scrub even. I won’t complicate it by adding on ingredients.
All you need:
- 1/2 cup rice powder or uncooked rice finely ground to a powder
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoon honey.
- 1 vitamin E capsule
Mix all the ingredients well and massage gently on rough areas like elbows, legs in a circular motion.
Rice powder has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties that can get rid of your tanned skin like magic. It removes your dead and flaky skin thereby improving your skin texture.
Honey is a complexion booster that is extremely moisturizing and soothing for your skin. Its antibacterial properties are great for acne treatment and prevention.
Vitamin E has excellent skin healing, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can treat any of your skin concerns.
4. Homemade Fruity Scrub:
Honestly, I got influenced after using The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish Scrub, so decided to give it a try. I thought it would be fun to give a shot and trust me it was worth it. If you love fruity scent then this
delicious diy body exfoliator serves the purpose.
All you need:
- 1 cup dried strawberries
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup honey
- ½ cup olive oil
Crush your freeze-dried strawberries in your grinder until you get a fine powder. Mix brown sugar, honey and olive oil in a small bowl. Massage in a circular motion on your elbows, legs, feet wherever you want to remove dead skin cells.
Strawberries are rich in Vitamins A and E, which help to fight aging and free radical damage. Honey’s moisturizing properties make your skin soft and glowing.
