Exfoliate naturally with Strawberries and Sea Salt.

Friday, October 16, 2009

If exfoliation isn't horrible for the environment, then why use strawberries?

Funny you should ask. It is the moisturizer that often follows exfoliation that can be ecologically unsound. These moisturizers often come packed in plastic tubes. Strawberries can be purchased sans tube or much packaging at all. Plus, strawberries are chocked full of acid. They'll do the job of a moisturizer as well as exfoliating. So why not use strawberries as an exfoliant? They work great on the hands and the feet but can be applied to the face as well.

Here are a couple recipes for strawberry exfoliation that I found on the internet:

This strawberry exfoliation recipe comes from Associated Content.

You can use about 8-10 strawberries from the store. You will need 2 tablespoons of apricot oil or olive oil. You will need 1 tbs of coarse salt, or sea salt so that you can exfoliate or rub on the skin. You will then mix all the ingredient together and then massage it on your hands and feet as exfoliate. You will then rinse your hand and feet and pat dry. Strawberries have natural fruit acid that helps in exfoliation of your skin. You can also use strawberries son your face.


This recipe for strawberry foot and hand exfoliant comes from Beauty Tips Hub:

Ingredients for Strawberry Hand and Foot Exfoliant
4-6 ripe Strawberries
1 tsp of Coarse Salt (you may use sea salt or kosher salt)
2 tbsp Olive Oil
4 Almonds (with skin)

Preparation for Strawberry Hand and Foot Exfoliant
Grate the almonds, finely Mash the strawberries. Avoid using a blender because the strawberry mixture may become too watery.

Add the salt, olive oil, and almonds to the mashed strawberries. Mix well. Store in a glass jar and refrigerate. This mixture stays good for about 7 days, at the most.

Application of Strawberry Hand and Foot Exfoliant
Clean your hands and feet with a gentle soap. Use a towel to gently pat your hands and feet, dry.

Apply the strawberry exfoliating scrub, evenly, to your hands and feet. Leave it on for about 3-5 minutes. Allow yourself to relax. If possible put your feet on a low stool.

Massage your hands and feet with gentle but firm, rotating movements for about 2 minutes. Wash off the exfoliating scrub with lukewarm water. Use a soft towel to pat your hands and feet dry.
Take a little body lotion and gently massage it on the freshly, scrubbed area.

You may repeat this process two times in a week.
The Strawberry Hand and Foot Exfoliant exfoliates and nourishes the skin of your hands and feet. This exfoliating scrub rejuvenates your skin. So, prepare this easy-to-make exfoliating scrub and give your hands and feet a fresh and clean look.
