Homemade Facial Exfoliant

I am branching out!  Using food for beauty products is not that far from cooking in the kitchen.  I have been wanting to buy a facial exfoliant but they are expensive, how good is the product, yada, yada.

When I have a kitchen full, why not try something homemade.

I found this recipe on a blog Pure Beauty.  From Nasirah's instructions I made this simple exfoliant.  I found that it was a little stingy on my face so next time I will likely use cornmeal rather than salt but it worked in a minute or two and left my face feeling so great.  And isn't the pretty peach colour so feminine!

Homemade Facial Exfoliant
1/3 cup pureed tomato
1/3 cup kosher salt
2 tablespoons honey

Combine and rub onto face in circles.  Rinse.  Dry.  Moisturize.

This is my entry for Fresh Friday with Roz at La Bella Vita.

  1. Cool idea, Sarah! There are places in NY that charge an arm an a leg for this fresh stuff as part of a facial... maybe a cottage industry in the works??

  4. I had no clue you could use tomatoes for an exfoliant. This is a wonderful idea and even better because it's all natural. I'll have to give this a try.
