DIY Banana Body Scrub

I’m weird when it comes to bananas. I looooooooooove nanners, like a lot, but as soon as they start getting those li’l brown spots on them, I don’t wanna eat them (too sweet… this, coming from a sugar addict). So when my nanners start turning brown, instead of eating them, I turn them into vegan beauty products. Woot! 😛

Yummy Sugary Banana Body Scrub (exfoliates and fights acne)

What you’ll need:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of agave syrup
  • a few drops of pure vanilla extract

Basically, just mix all of your ingredients together, and then use it next time you take a shower. Gently massage it all over your body and then rinse.

Enjoy your super smooth skin!

Just keepin’ it real,
Sunny

    Okk people so most of us don’t have a nickel to spare so this is what i came up with as a lil alternative for us with no money.
    1 ripe banana
    4 tablespoons of brow sugar (don’t use refined sugar, the whole bleaching and chemicals can’t be good for the environment or you body)
    1 table spoon of either peach pulp (just much up some ripe peach) or oat meal
    2-3 drop of pure vanilla extract

    You could probably use baby oil instead of agave, right? Or soy milk?
    I make a brown sugar scrub using just brown sugar and vanilla soy milk and I use it in the shower. It gives me a nice golden glow, plus it tastes good!
