DIY- Cherry Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub

What you need:

1/2-1 cup of granulated organic sugar (sloughs off dead skin cells)
1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil (very hydrating and will not clog pores!)
4 Tbsp of pure organic honey (a natural antioxidant, helps rejuvenate and refresh the skin, helps with acne, and binds ingredients together)
1/4 cup of fresh cherries, minced (a natural antioxidant and helps even out skin tone)

Measure out your sugar, honey and extra virgin olive oil

Mix above ingrediants in a clean tupperware container
* You can leave the scrub like this if you prefer and keep it for up to 1 month (don't keep in fridge). Use 1-2 times per week on body and/or face

Take seeds out of cherries, then mince cherries with a knife or a food processor

Add cherries to your sugar, honey and evoo mixture and stir well

Finished Cherry Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub!
How easy was that?!

This recipe is enough for your whole body, just rub it on in a circular motion paying extra attention to areas where skin is rougher. Like I mentioned before, you can keep this scrub for up to 1 month in a container before it has the cherries. If you are adding the cherries, use it as a one time use and make a fresh batch the next time you do it.

This is a super easy and inexpensive way to keep your skin and face feeling soft and looking bright! Plus it is all natural and you know exactly what you are putting on your skin!
