One of the latest ingredients that skincare enthusiasts are obsessed with is enzymes. They work as incredible exfoliators to slough away dead skin cells and impart an amazing glow. Great, isn’t it?
The only problem is – like so many great skincare ingredients – they are on the pricier side. However, that shouldn’t stop you from reaping benefits of this wonder ingredient. We have a much more affordable option — a super simple, natural and effective DIY scrub. Here’s how to make it:
DIY enzyme scrub for brighter skin
You will need:
- 2-3 slices of fresh pineapple
- 1 tablespoon of raw oats
- 1 teaspoon of raw honey
Step 01: Blend the pineapple in a mixture until it forms a smooth paste
Step 02: Then, add the rest of the ingredients to this paste and mix well
Step 03: Apply the scrub onto cleansed skin and gently massage the scrub in circular motions onto your face
Step 04: Leave it on for a few minutes or until it partially dries
Step 05: Wash with warm water and follow it up with your favourite moisturiser.
Since pineapple is the key ingredient in this scrub, it is a great source of the fruit enzyme – bromelain. This is a great ingredient to gently yet effectively get rid of dead skin and unclog pores to reveal fresh and glowing skin. Additionally, it is a natural source of vitamin C and delivers antioxidants to protect your skin from UV damage and other environmental aggressors. The inclusion of raw oats helps to calm the skin of inflammations and helps keep your skin looking healthy, nourished and moisturised.
But if you are low on time and need something that gives you instant results, then you should try the St. Ives Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub. The citrusy ingredients in this scrub helps to slough dead skin and dullness, revealing skin that looks super glowing, radiant and youthful.
