DIY – Ruby Red Grapefruit Face Scrub
To make this easy face scrub all you need is a rubber spatula or long spoon, a blender, one Pittman & Davis Grapefruit, sugar, oil, and an airtight container with lid to store the facial scrub between uses.
Ingredients & Preparation
- 1 Pittman & Davis Ruby Red Grapefruit
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2-3 Tablespoon of oil (avocado oil, grape seed oil, or coconut oil all work well)
After eating each grapefruit half with a spoon, scoop out the remaining segments, flesh, seeds, and juice and add to the blender. You can also just use 3 to 4 peeled grapefruit sections. Add the sugar and 2 tablespoon of oil. Blend until smooth. You may need to add the third tablespoon of oil for a smoother scrub. When finished, your grapefruit face scrub should be about the consistency of cake batter. Using the rubber spatula or spoon, scrape the mixture into your storage container and it is ready to use.
Use and Storage
Wet your face and dry the areas around your eyes with a soft towel. Begin with about a teaspoon of scrub and apply to face in a swirling motion. Use the grapefruit scrub to cleanse face, forehead, and neck adding small amounts as you go. Be careful to avoid your eyes with the scrub, in much the same way as you would with soap. Rinse your face thoroughly with cool water and pat dry.
Store the remaining face scrub in an airtight container with lid, and keep refrigerated for up to one week.
