Face masks are popular, but it’s important to remember the rest of your skin! You may associate cranberries as a holiday side dish or even a desert but, believe me, they are so much more! Did you know cranberries are not only delicious, but are actually great at fighting acne? It’s true! Cranberries contain a compound called “resveratrol” which is perfect for helping you deal with that pesky body acne. When making this DIY body scrub, it’s very important to make sure everything is well sanitized and clean. Make sure your container for storing your body scrub is air tight. This is done to prevent any pesky bacteria from forming in your body scrub. You don’t want to ruin all your hard work. Here’s what you need to know:
One half cup whole frozen or fresh cranberries
One cup packed brown sugar
One fourth cup coconut or jojoba oil
Five to seven drops essential oils for fragrance (optional)
Using a blender or a food processor, puree the cranberries until well blended. Empty the pureed cranberries into a glass bowl and mix in the sugar, jojoba oil, and essential oils until a paste forms.
Place this paste into a sanitized and air tight container.
Use on your body when you’re in the shower and you’re set!
