Preparing homemade beauty products
Are you planning a day to rest and relax? Tramontina has a great tip for you to look after yourself
How about relaxing this weekend and looking after your skin with a homemade exfoliator?
It's very easy to make and the result is amazing!
All you need are some ingredients and common utensils; then all you have to do is get to work!
1/4 peeled cucumber
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp. coconut oil
8-10 drops of menthol essential oil
Put the cucumber in a mortar and pound it with a pestle until it turns into a purée. When you've obtained the desired texture, add the sugar and coconut oil. Mix well and add the essential oil drops. Finally, store in a sealed container and put it in the fridge until it's cold.
When you want to use the exfoliator, wash your skin well with mild soap and apply the exfoliator to your face, massaging in circular motions. Leave for 5 to 10 minutes. The sugar will help remove dirt from your skin and the menthol oil will give you a refreshing feeling.
And don't forget: storing it in the fridge is the key for you to use the exfoliator more than once.
