Beauty DIY: Apple Face Scrub

The second I feel a cool breeze in the air, I'm ready for all things autumn. I thought I'd share this Apple Face Scrub because it reminds me of autumn and because a couple of you wanted a DIY with fruit. It's a classic, adaptable recipe. Enjoy.



T O O L S:
  • plain, uncooked oats
  • 1 c of pureed apple (I used organic applesauce since it's easier)
  • 1 tsp Sweet Almond Oil
M E T H O D:
  • Blend ingredients together (I use a handheld immersion mixer) until it reaches a paste consistency.
  • Wet face and apply scrub, rubbing it around your face. This works best over a sink!
  • Leave on for 15 minutes and then rinse away.
T I P S:
  • The apple improves the skin with its anti-aging, skin-renewing properties, as well as its vitamins and minerals. You can use one small apple or applesauce, like I did. 
  • The oats act as an exfoliant. Feel free to substitute your favorite exfoliant.
  • The Sweet Almond Oil softens the skin and adds moisture. Feel free to leave out if you are allergic or don't want the moisture.
  • Scrub can be used on the body (try your legs before shaving!) and keeps for a week in the fridge.

  5. I will definitely try this mask. I have an apple tree in the back yard and we can simply not eat all the apples so this is perfect :)

  6. This made me hungry for some reason. :) I'm happy to share though that your travel scrub tip using sugar has helped me a lot while traveling. Now this is a great use for those extra sliced apples while baking some apple pie while looking fabulous.
