So, after a homemade Diwali, I tried my hands at some homemade beauty products. I think some major DIY genie has gotten into me and do you know who that genie is? Our very own Jomol hihihi
I got this TBS cocoa butter body wash long time back, used it for a while and later dropped it because it made me feel as if it was not cleaning enough. You know that feeling of some oily stuff on your body when we use some extra moisturizing body wash or something that we feel on using Dove soap? Though this body wash is a must-have and is heavenly moisturizing for Delhi and North Indian winters, it is not much of use here in Andamans, so I thought of putting it to a better use.
Let me know what you think of this new product that I made.
Things you would need:
Sea salt (you can use ordinary salt or sugar as well), a hand, face or a body wash, some body oil (only if your wash is drying in nature).
How To Make Exfoliating Face and Body Wash:
1. Get some sea salt. If you do not have sea salt, you can make it. I have explained it later how to make sea salt at home. Or else, you can even use the normal salt or sugar or even a salt/sugar mix!
2. Get a body wash or a hand wash or a face wash.
3. Mix the two.
4. Store in a jar.
Here are a few notes:
How to make sea salt – collect some fresh sea water in a pan. Boil it on stove for about 20-30 minutes and you have fresh, white salt.
Else, you can also dry it off under the sun for 2-3 days as this will save you a lot of gas. If you are drying it under the sun, cover the pan with a cotton cloth as this will save it from dirt, pollution etc.
If you have a body wash, face wash or hand wash that is drying in nature, add a bit of olive oil to it.
If you do not have olive oil, you can add glycerin to hand wash or body wash, but for face wash, it is better to add oil. Any oil it can be – olive, almond or Aroma Magic Beauty Oil.
Sea salt has a tendency to lose water. So, even if you keep sea salt just like that for a while, it would get runny in consistency. But do not worry. This just proves your salt is pure and natural.
If you want to further customize your wash, add any ingredient that you want. Like peppermint oil, but remember tea tree and peppermint are a little drying in nature.
I am super elated since the time I have tried this. I have been using it for 2-3 days and I am in love with this homemade scrub. I wash my hands daily with this and then apply a hand cream and the result – “Twacha jo chhoone ko dil kare.” ;) hihihi
Have a lovely day everyone!
