DIY- APRICOT PAPAYA FACE SCRUB
APRICOT AND PAPAYA FACE SCRUB
1 tsp apricot kernel powder (finely grated)
3 tbs apricot pulp
3 tbs ripe papaya pulp (peak season is beginning of summer; end of spring if you’re lucky!)
Mix all ingredients together and apply to your face and neck for 20 minutes. Gently scrub while rinsing off. Leon Rao, natural skin care advisor and author of Leon’s Anti-aging Beauty Secrets, advises, “If you don’t have apricot kernel powder at home, you can substitute it with oatmeal powder or almond powder.”
Skin care benefit
Apricots are high in beta-carotene and known for reducing problematic skin issues. A mixture of sub-acids and sugar, apricots are great for gentle exfoliation and nourishment, leaving your skin soft and brighter.
