beauty tip #2 OATMEAL, ALMOND & AVOCADO body scrub
Thanks to all, for leaving your sweet messeges on my blog. Today i am going to share another body scrub recipe from the book Secret of the Spas. this particular scrub is ideal for irritated, tired and dry skin.
OATMEAL - rich in vitamin E (anti-inflammatory, anti-itch, skin soothing)
ALMONDS - natural emollient and when ground, effective exfoliant
AVOCADO - contains vitamin A, D and E which possesses collagen-rebuilding properties
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup dry oatmeal
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and mashed
Place almonds in a blender or coffee grinder and grind until coarse and not too fine.
Mix almonds and oatmeal and place in glove or muslin mitt. Scoop up avocado and rub on body with mitt. rinse off with warm water pat dry and moisturize.
NOTE: to avoid clogging your drain, make a small pouch or bag out of muslin cloth and fill it with dry oatmeal and grated almond.
HAVE A FUN AND RELAXING WEEKEND......
