How to Make an Apricot Scrub

Save

Apricot is a popular ingredient in many beauty brands. Apricots have lots of vitamin A, and vitamin A is essential for youthful skin and slowing the aging process. The apricot kernel is the smooth, light-colored nut inside the rough apricot pit. This kernel is used to make the apricot scrub.

Take out the pits of six apricots. Wash and allow them to dry completely.

Put pits on a cutting board and cover with plastic wrap. Crack open the pits with a mallet and remove the soft kernel. Make sure no sharp traces remain on the kernel.

Continue to pound the kernel until it turns to a powder.

Moisten the powder with 3 or 4 drops of water, or until the powder becomes a grainy paste. Or, combine with your normal cleanser by mixing equal amounts of each (about the size of a dime).

Apply to skin in circular motions and rinse thoroughly. Store in an airtight container. Use as often as desired.

Tips & Warnings

  • The powder keeps for months in an airtight container. If the smell becomes rancid, throw it out.
  • Make sure there are no traces of the external pit shell. This is far too harsh to use on the face.
