I am so glad I can share this scrub-pack with you as I resort to this a lot during the winters and it is even more special to me as my granny had formulated this one for me keeping in mind my extra-dry skin areas during the winters. I love my granny and so do I love this scrub-pack.
So, the scrub-pack is quite simple to make and all you need are some simple ingredients you will definitely find around in your kitchen and the pack is totally natural and people with very dry and rough skin can use it on their face and entire body wherever you have problem areas.
So, before I can walk you through the DIY, let me quickly tell you the list of ingredients and also about the goodness of all the ingredients we are going to add in there.
You will need: (Do alter the ingredients quantity based on the amount of scrub-pack you want to make)
- Mashed banana pulp (1/4th banana)
- One teaspoon honey
- Grated coconut, separated as milk and the grated coconut dried in natural sunlight.
Benefits of Coconut Milk: Coconut milk is great for your skin. It is rich in vitamins A and C, calcium, iron and natural proteins which contribute to a smooth and radiant skin. Due to its soothing properties, coconut milk is a great moisturizer that can replace moisture in dehydrated skin. Application of coconut milk improves skin elasticity due to its copper and vitamin C content. Thus, it prevents wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots. The natural fatty acids in this milk can help treat dry and irritated skin and remove harmful bacteria from your skin.
Benefits of Honey: Honey can do wonders for your skin. That’s the reason why you will find it in many skin-care products today. Honey acts as a great anti-aging agent and moisturizer. It is rich in natural antioxidants that have anti-microbial properties. They help protect your skin from harmful UV rays and facilitate the skin’s ability to rejuvenate. Honey also has the ability to absorb and retain moisture and this helps in keeping the skin well hydrated, fresh and supple. It is known that ancient women used honey and milk to keep the skin youthful, radiant and smooth
Benefits of Banana: Banana has nutrients that are essential for the skin. They contain significant amounts of vitamin C and B6 which plays vital role in maintaining the elasticity of the skin. In addition, the large amount of antioxidants and manganese present in banana protect the body from damage caused by oxygen free radicals which lead to premature aging of the skin.
Alrighty girls, so after learning about all those wonderful things these ingredients can do, let’s move ahead and prepare this mask.
You will have to put in a little effort before you could ripe the fruits of this pack. Take some freshly grated coconut, you can decide whatever quantity you want as you can store this, so once you have some fresh grated coconut, strain it through a sieve and try and get the maximum milk out of the pulp. Now place this pulp in sunlight for a day until it dries crisp. You can store both the milk and the dried pulp in refrigerator and use it whenever you want.
Step 1: Take the banana and mash it in a bowl in to a mushy pulp.
Step 2: Add the coconut milk, depending on the quantity of grated coconut you want to add in.
Step 3: Follow this up with the coconut pulp, mix it all up well.
So you now have a scrub-pack ready. Now to tell you about how actually this pack works, if you have extremely dry skin, apply this scrub and massage it all over your dry skin in circular motions for a good amount of time. And once you are done massaging, leave it on for next 15 minutes. Once it dries up, wash it off with luke warm water. With constant use of this scrub, you will see that your problem areas of dry skin will vanish. Your skin will become supple, soft and radiant.
I use this lot in winters and all the ingredients work together and stand true to all the claims of benefits.
Hope you girls try this.
