For many years, or for as long as I can remember, I have been creating homemade beauty care as my skin is super sensitive. I find that even shop bought, and sometimes other people’s homemade soaps can irritate my skin.
When making these products I believe in simplicity by not overcrowding the inventions and tinctures so anything that I share is easy to make, easy to use and super effective.
Grapefruit is my chosen DIY body treatment of the day. She is oh so sweet, so pretty, so bright, so perfect and oh so Yum.
You have a choice with this recipe, you can eat the content then use the remaining to make the scrub or use the entire grapefruit. I will leave that up to your taste buds to decide.
Personally, I love this fruit, I like to squeeze the juice into hot water for a bitter sweet wake me up or I have her how she is. Other times I use the juice on my face with an ice-cold flannel after cleansing a few times per month when they are in season.
Before I let you in on one of my Citrus favourite homemade scrubs let me share with you the many benefits of including this delicious the fruit into your diet, whether it be through "Plant feed" or "Skin feed" ...
