All-Natural Mango-Pineapple-Kiwi Face & Body Scrub


We all know how delicious and nutritious mango, pineapple and kiwi are! They are just as good for the top of your skin.  Loaded with anti-aging and clarifying magic, these super fruits are antioxidant rich and high in vitamin C.  When used in an exfoliating sugar scrub for your face and body, you will be on your way to glowing and radiant smooth skin.  Make sure you only use superfine or caster sugar.  I chose liquid coconut oil since there was the tropical thing going on with the fruit.  Oh, speaking of the fruit.......I used a 10 gram package of freeze-dried mango, pineapple and kiwi fruit.  Freeze dried fruit has had all the moisture taken out and you don't have to worry about it going bad or melting your sugar like the fresh fruit would. You can choose to use any variety of freeze dried fruit....strawberries, blueberries, mango, you name it!!!




Finely grind the fruit into a powder. 

Sift the powder to remove any stubborn tiny mango pieces that may remain. 

The powder needs to be super fine so it it will not scratch your delicate skin. 

You will need 1/2 cup of superfine sugar which is also known as caster sugar. 


You will need 1/4 cup, plus one tablespoon of coconut oil.  I used liquid coconut oil which is normally crystal clear, but as you can see in the photo above, it was cloudy since it was rather chilly in my house.  You can use regular or liquid coconut oil. 

Combine the freeze-dried fruit powder, sugar and liquid coconut oil into a small bowl and mix well to combine. 


Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of Vitamin E Oil.  

I get my Vitamin E Oil from Mountain Rose Herbs.  It is made from NON-GMO Soy Sources!!! Click here to be taken to Mountain Rose Herbs for a look around. 

To use the scrub: moisten skin and massage a generous amount into the skin using gentle circular motions until the sugar has dissolved.  Leave on for 5 minutes and then rinse away with warm water. Avoid eye area. This recipe is enough for at least 5 facial applications or 2 body applications. 

Cheers!!
