Need a fun and easy way to love your face? With summer around the corner, the quest for showing off polished skin is inevitable. Commonly we start with the area that everyone sees on first contact: our face! Exfoliation is the key to polished skin and offer so many health benefits. Exfoliation is the removal of dead or dry skin cells found on the surface of the skin. By removing these, you increase blood circulation and reveal the healthy glowing skin underneath.
Exfoliation can be done twice a week at the most, for body and face. Exfoliating too often can strip the skin of its natural oils and lead to redness or dryness. A fun way to exfoliate your face us with a strawberry almond scrub. It’s the right balance of ingredients as Almonds and strawberries are great for improving complexion and preventing sun damage. Together, these contain vitamins E and C, Salicylic acid and powerful enzymes.
You can easily store this in the fridge in a 5 – 10ml sample container for convenience.
- 2-3 fresh strawberries, thinly sliced
- 2 almonds (thinly sliced and minced)
- Place the strawberries in a small container and mash thoroughly using a fork until the berry blend is as smooth as possible, with very tiny pieces of fruit.
- Ensure that the almonds are thinly sliced and minced before adding , as we wouldn’t want the mixture to be too coarse or chunky for the skin.
Apply on cleansed skin and leave on for 5 – 7 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Pat dry.
