Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.
Steps: DIY Pomegranate Body Scrub
1- Start by adding a 1/2 cup (100 grams or 3.52 oz) of sugar into the bowl.
2- Add 1 teaspoon (3 grams or 0.10 oz) of pomegranate peel powder.
3- With a wooden popsicle, mix well, till you get a homogeneous blend.
4- Add 22 milliliters (0.74 US fl oz) of jojoba oil. You can use instead olive oil, grapeseed oil, or sweet almond oil.
5- Mix the ingredients thoroughly.
6- Add 2.5 milliliters (0.085 US fl oz) of pomegranate oil.
7- Mix well.
8- Add 10 drops of essential oil. Choose one that you like, but based on fruit, since we are making a pomegranate scrub.
9- Mix again.
10- To make our DIY pomegranate body scrub more interesting, we will make it in 2 colors. Split the contents into 2 bowls.
11- With the tip of a wooden popsicle, add a little red mica powder to one bowl, and gold mica to the second bowl. Since one of the ingredients is oil, the mica powder dissolves easily upon mixing.
12- Mix thoroughly.
13- Scoop the scrub into small containers or bottles for storage. You can alternate layers of different scrub colors as in the image below.
How To Use: DIY Pomegranate Body Scrub
Step 1: Prepare Your Skin
Start by washing your body with warm water to open up the pores and remove any dirt or impurities. Pat your skin dry gently with a towel.
Step 2: Scoop the Scrub
Take a generous amount of the pomegranate body scrub with clean fingers or a spoon. You can adjust the quantity based on the areas you want to exfoliate.
Step 3: Apply and Massage
Using gentle circular motions, apply the scrub to your damp skin. Focus on areas that may be rough or in need of exfoliation, such as elbows, knees, and heels. Avoid using the scrub on any open cuts or wounds.
Step 4: Exfoliate
Continue massaging the scrub into your skin for about 5 minutes. The sugar granules will work to exfoliate and slough off dead skin cells, while the pomegranate peel powder and oils provide nourishment.
Step 5: Let it Sit
For enhanced benefits, leave the scrub on your skin for an additional 2-3 minutes. This allows the oils to deeply penetrate and hydrate your skin.
Step 6: Rinse Off
Thoroughly rinse off the scrub with warm water. You may use your hands or a gentle washcloth to remove the scrub entirely.
Step 7: Pat Dry and Moisturize
Gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Take a moment to admire the newfound radiance and softness. For ultimate hydration, follow up with your favorite body lotion or moisturizer to lock in the nourishing effects of the pomegranate body scrub.
Step 8: Repeat and Store
You can use this highly effective DIY pomegranate body scrub up to twice a week, depending on your skin’s sensitivity. Store any remaining scrub in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for future use.
Now that you know how to use the DIY Pomegranate Body Scrub, enjoy the luxurious spa-like experience it provides and revel in the rejuvenating effects on your skin. With regular use, you’ll achieve glowing, smoother, and healthier-looking skin from head to toe.
