Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tomato (small)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp grapeseed oil
  • 2 tbs rice flour

Instructions

  • Blend tomato, juice from the lemon, and grapeseed oil until smooth.
  • For a single use, pour 1 - 2 tablespoons of the tomato mixture into a small bowl and add 1 - 2 tablespoons of rice flour. Stir to mix well.
  • Apply scrub to face using fingers and gently massage in a circular fashion for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Rinse with warm water then pat dry.

Rice Flour

  • Take 1/2 cup of rice (white or brown) and blend until it becomes a powder. Use as needed and store excess in airtight container.

Notes

This scrub can be used 2 to 3 times a week, which is enough for a good exfoliation. You can blend the tomato, lemon juice and grapeseed oil together and store in refrigerator for up to 5 days, then add the rice flour before use.
You can also apply just the tomato mixture in between your scrub days. When used consistently, you'll see good results. Be sure to follow the scrub with a good, anti-aging moisturizer.
