How have you been keepin’ in your neck of woods? As promised…my extra organic beauty tip of the week. Remember that I work with ingredients out of my food cupboard and fridge.
So to make the brewski strawberry facial scrub we will need 2-3 strawberries and a few drops of beer to make a paste.
So how does it work?
Easy! Start by mashing the strawberries (a fork does wonders) and once the strawberries are mashed add the beer until a paste is formed. Rub the paste on your face in a circular motion (like always), and let it marinade for about 15-20 minutes. Once the time’s up, rinse that home made scrub off thoroughly and add a finishing touch of moisturiser (check out my recipe for making home made moisturiser, and otherwise your regular moisturiser will also do the job).
If you still have beer left (and haven’t been sneakily drinking it all) I have one more tip! This time we won’t apply to our face, we will let it marinade on our hair. Yes, you read that correctly..
What do you need? A glass of lukewarm beer and a couple tablespoons of jojoba oil, mix it up and follow up your shampoo with this natural but more importantly non-greasy conditioner. For me this home made mix is ideal because I have greasy hair and very greasy conditioners do not really help.
