I like to exfoliate my face at least once a week to remove all the dead cells on the surface, thus improving the appearance of my skin. But when it comes to the rest of my body, I often forget this important step. So, when a few weeks ago I found some ginger in my kitchen, I decided to put it to good use and try a couple of homemade scrubs with it.
I like how well they worked, laving my skin brighter and soft. And they’re especially good for days when you’re tired as ginger has invigorating properties! If you wanna give them a try too, here’s what you’ll need:
1. Ginger and Cinnamon Body Scrub
– 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
– 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
– 1 cup of sea salt
– 1 cup of almond oil (in alternative, you can use olive oil)
Mix all the ingredients together well in a bowl. Now rub the mixture gently on your damp (not wet) body skin to remove dead skin cells and rinse off with warm water.
2. Ginger and Rice Scrub
– 4 tablespoons of ginger powder
– 4 tablespoons of rice
– some water
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, then rub the mixture on your skin and rinse off with warm water.
