DIY Skincare - Make Your Own, General

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,

I decided to look into it further. Turns out that Bicarb is actually quite wonderful. Continue Reading
