• Make Your Own Nourishing Hemp Body Scrub

    April 11, 2018 • BEAUTY, DIY RECIPES, VEGAN

    It may sound counter intuitive to exfoliate dry skin, but this Hemp Body Scrub buffs away dead skin cells and moisturises at the same time. Hemp contains many nourishing components, including animo and fatty acids, and hemp seed oil is incredibly moisturising. It’s just the recipe for dry, flaky skin in need of some TLC.

    Hemp Protein Powder contains all the goodness of hemp in exfoliant form. A complete protein containing all 10 essential amino acids and 14 fatty acids, this powder will nourish your skin while buffing away dead skin cells.

    Brown Sugar is another exfoliant that gently polishes and smooths the skin. Sugar is a natural source of Glycolic Acid, which breaks down proteins to remove dead skin cells easier.

    Hemp Seed Oil contains all the healthy amino and fatty acids that the protein powder does. It is also highly moisturising, renewing tired, dry skin.

    Lemon Peel adds a fresh and citrus-y smell to the scrub, invigorating your muscles and waking you up in the morning. Citrus also helps to kill bacteria, so it may aid some skin ailments.

    Hemp Body Scrub

    Ingredients

    Method

    1. Combine the brown sugar, hemp protein, and lemon peel in a glass bowl.
    2. Gradually add the hemp seed oil, stirring continuously until the hemp body scrub reaches the consistency of moist sand.

    How To Use

    Hemp body scrub is best used in the shower after wetting your skin. In circular motions, gently massage the scrub all over, taking care on sensitive skin and paying extra attention to dry and rough patches.

    Feel free to leave the scrub on for a few minutes, allowing the nourishing ingredients to soak in, and then gently wash off in warm water. Apply your favourite body moisturiser afterwards.

    Use scrub immediately after making or store in a small glass jar for a short time in cool conditions. Store in the refrigerator on hot days.
