Almond and Oat Body Scrub

Hi Guys,

This is something that I have been doing a bit of research on the last little while. I have super sensitive skin and probably don’t look after it as well as I should. It could be said that I neglect my skin ūüėČ I am a bit of a label reader and so part the reason I neglect my skin, well apart from being a bit lazy is because I hate turning the bottle over to find that I can’t even pronounce half the ingredients let alone know why they are there and what they are doing for my skin! I do have a good brand that I do use and like but well Thermy just got a whole new use!

We are off to Malaysia for a big family holiday next month so my skin is getting a re-vamp in order to be bather ready! after hours and hours of trawling through the world wide web there was a few products that just kept popping up in all the recipes I could find. So I had a bit of a play around and this is what I have come up with.

INGREDIENTS:

50g Almonds Raw and Skin on.

50g ¬†Oat’s

20g Avocado Oil]

20g Honey

Approx 3 tablespoons Natural Organic Yoghurt.

METHOD: 

  1. Add Almonds to the TM and blitz till fine – Start at slowly and work the speed up to speed 6. Should take about 30 – 40 seconds. You don’t want them too fine as they work to¬†ex-foliate¬†as well.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, but only add 2 tablespoons of yoghurt at this stage. Set lid to closed position and turbo 2 or 3 times to mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Check consistency. It should be a creamy, add another spoon of yoghurt if you think it needs it.

TO USE:

  • Test a spot of the scrub first to make sure you don’t get a reaction.
  • Use a small amount and scrub skin.
  • Leave for 5 – 10 minutes then rinse off.
INFO:
AVOCADO OIL –¬†
Avocado oil penetrates deeply into the skin, unike some oils used in some big brand skin care products like mineral oil, which stays on the surface of the skin. It is highly nourishing to the skin and moisturizes very well. It is packed in natural vitamins like vitamins A,D and E and a wide range of other proteins and minerals essential to skin health.
A lot of the home made skin care recipes had raw avocado. I chose to use the oil as this way I can pop the left over’s in the fridge and keep it for a couple of weeks. I thought the avocado would go yuk pretty quick. However if you can’t find the oil you can use a fresh avocado.
The yoghurt gives it a nice cooling feeling and a great creamy texture.
I used the mix on my legs today and will do a test patch later tonight on my face and then use it on my face.
There are a few essential oils that are great to use in the mix too. Tea Tree is a good healing one for break outs and Basil oil is also a good one for skin care.
I definitely felt a differnece after using this on my legs. I mostly felt a difference in my hands they feel really soft at the moment!
I finished it off with an organic moisturiser.
ALWAYS TRY A TEST PATCH BEFORE USING TO ENSURE THERE IS NOT A REACTION.
Please also realise that I am not a doctor or a dermatoligest. The information here has been gathered from reading through skin care recipes found on the net.
So do you have a skin care recipe to share????

    Just wondering if you keep this scrub in the fridge? And also how long does it last for/keep for?
