Got Bananas? How to Make a DIY Skin Moisturizing Sugar Scrub!


Who has the time to be Betty homemaker and bake banana bread every few weeks with those fast-aging bananas?

Why not treat yourself to a fast, 10-minute pick-me-up with my simple, inexpensive, spa treatment made right at home! Your skin won’t know the difference if the bananas have seen better days, so don’t worry! Here’s how to make it!

  • Mash one brown banana.
  • Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of organic granulated cane sugar, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and a few drops of pure vanilla extract or the essential oil of your choice.

Get in the shower and before turning on the water, massage the mix all over. Rinse. Feel sweet and smooth. (Dusting with powdered sugar afterwards is 100 percent optional!)
