Pineapple and Vanilla Sweet Rice Exfoliating Powder
You don't want any crunchy and jagged bits remaining in your recipe because it will scratch up your face and hurt like heck!
To your powdered pineapple, add in a 1/4 cup of sweet rice flour. This is what gives this recipe the awesome exfoliating power. It is gentle, yet highly effective at deeply exfoliating your skin.
It is the mildest of all clays and is suitable for people with sensitive skin. It helps stimulate circulation to the skin while gently exfoliating and cleansing it. It does not draw oils from the skin, so it can be used on dry skin types without negative results.
Give the ingredients a quick stir with a small whisk.
Sprinkle in a 1/2 tablespoon of Pure Vanilla Powder. I added this in because it makes the recipe smell so amazing!! Think of it as powdered aromatherapy for your spirit. There is just something super special about vanilla and the way the aroma makes me feel so calm and relaxed. Having said that, you can leave it out if you want.
Whisk it up!!!!
Your recipe is finished and ready to be transferred to a container with a tight fitting lid.
Another optional step you can take with this recipe is by adding in a few moisture absorbing desiccant packs to your jarred powder. This will help keep the exfoliating powder dryer and prevent any mold from growing. I save up all my desiccant packs that come in my vitamins and supplements so I can re-use them in my homemade recipes.
Make sure you choose a jar that has a very tight fitting lid. You don't want any moisture to get into your powder. Use a spoon to measure out the powder for each facial.
To use: Cleanse face with a mild cleanser and rinse with warm water. Keep your skin a bit moist and massage in about two teaspoons of the Pineapple and Vanilla Sweet Rice Exfoliating Powder for about one minute. Rinse well with warm water and moisturize as normal. Your face will feel super polished and refreshed. Avoid eye area.
