At the Body Shop, one of my favorite products is the Strawberry Body Polish. However, even though I love the way the scrub exfoliated the dead flaky rough skin from my body, I do not like the unnatural ingredients in it such as the dyes and sulfates. Now, I make my own homemade strawberry body polish using purely natural ingredient that includes real fresh strawberries. The body polish works just as well as the store brand one, but I personally think it nourishes, exfoliates and polishes the body right up beautifully.Natural Ingredients Used
The natural ingredients I use to make my homemade strawberry body polish are organic strawberries, almond oil, raw organic honey, kiwi fruits, ground walnut shell powder and brown sugar. All these ingredients can easily be found at a whole food grocery store. The ingredients can be pricey, but I find it is well worth it for an all-natural strawberry body polish.
Creating the Strawberry Body Polish
The way I create my version of the strawberry body polish is by placing two cups of organic strawberries, one cup of almond oil, a forth cup of honey, one kiwi fruit, one cup of ground walnut shell powder and one cup of brown sugar into a puree machine. Then, I simply puree the ingredients together until I get a gritty deep reddish pink and thick strawberry scented body polish. The body polish smells so good you will want to eat it, but do not. The body polish is for polishing that body right up. After the polish is ready, I scoop it into a glass jar and store it in the refrigerator until I am ready to use it in the shower. You have to store the body polish in the refrigerator because it can spoil fast since it is all natural.
Applying and Using the Body Polish
When I want to use my strawberry body polish, I take it out of the refrigerator and bring it into the shower with men. Then, I wash up with warm water and body wash to cleanse my skin well so it is easier to polish up. Then, I take handfuls of the body polish and I massage it all over my skin using tons of circular fast motions to help remove any dead skin and polish up the new skin underneath so it can be bright, vibrant, soft and healthy appearing and feeling. Next, I rinse off with tons of warm water, dry my skin off with a lovely cotton towel and massage a lovely organic scented strawberry body polish into my skin to give it some hydration, nourishment and a bit of a glow.
If you love strawberries and body polishes this homemade strawberry body polish is one of my favorites to make and use and I highly recommend making and using some on you too. I find it works a lot better than the store brand strawberry body polish and it really does polish the skin up beautifully while providing it with plenty of antioxidants too.
