Whole Beauty Heavenly Light Face Scrub Recipe

by Betsy Anderson

DIY Beauty Recipe from Actress and Beauty Expert Shiva Rose

Sesame seeds are used often in Ayurvedic recipes for their high mineral content and conditioning aspects. Here, zinc-rich sesame oil is combined with brown rice to slough off dead skin cells; green tea provides a dose of anti-aging antioxidants. Use this scrub to remove the blockage of dull cells and reveal fresh new ones so that your skin casts a beautiful glow.

For normal to dry skin
Use once a month, or whenever you feel your skin needs exfoliation

2 tablespoons uncooked brown rice
Contents of 1 tea bag of green tea
1 tablespoon sesame seed oil

Grind the rice and tea to a fine powder in a coffee grinder and transfer to a bowl. Stir in the sesame oil. Wet your face and apply the scrub in a circular motion. Leave on for 20 minutes, then wash off with warm water.
