Make your own Peanut butter Scrub

I’m having a Saturday night in. Sad, I know but I’m determined to enjoy my night regardless. Whilst many of you are out painting the town red, I’m elbow deep in peanut butter whilst wearing a t-shirt that reads  “and so the lion fell in love with the lamb”. Twilight nerding aside this mask is really delicious and I only used 3 ingredients from my kitchen. It left my skin silky smooth.

All you need:

  • 40g crunchy peanut butter
  • 20g finely ground sea salt
  • 25ml almond oil (use olive oil instead if you don’t have any)

I mixed the peanut butter with the sea salt. Then I stirred in the almond oil. I rubbed it on damp skin and massaged well.

Whether you’re out on the town or curled up on front of the tv I hope you have a spectacular night.

Le grá,

Make You Own Skincare: Body Scrub Puree

This recipe makes a rich moisturising scrub. I think it’s particularly good for dry or sensitive skin. Instead of using salts or sugar, the almonds in this scrub exfoliate the skin gently. The cucumber soothes any inflammation. All you need is

  • 110g Ripe Avocado
  • 40g Ground Almond
  • 110g Cucumbers

Whip the advocado and cucumber together in a blender, add the almonds and smooth into a puree. Massage into damp skin to slough off any dead skin. Rinse and pat the skin dry.

I make this every once in a while whenever I fancy a gentle body exfoliator.
