Got Bananas? How to Make a DIY Skin Moisturizing Sugar Scrub!

Who has the time to be Betty homemaker and bake banana bread every few weeks with those fast-aging bananas? Why not treat yourself to a fast, 10-minute pick-me-up with my simple, inexpensive, spa treatment made right at home! Your skin won't know the difference if the bananas have seen better days, so don't worry! 

You'll need:

  • 1 overripe banana
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons organic granulated cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • few drops pure vanilla extract or essential oil of your choice

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Mash the banana.
  2. Add the organic granulated cane sugar, coconut oil and a few drops of pure vanilla extract or the essential oil.

Here's how to use it:

  • Get in the shower and before turning on the water, massage the mix all over. 
  • Rinse. 
  • Feel sweet and smooth. (Dusting with powdered sugar afterwards is 100 percent optional!)
