How do the beautiful people of tropics care for luxurious skin?
Well some might say that this boils down to diet, environmental factors and genetics for example.
Yes you are quite right all these factors play a part. At MamaSia the elders taught us that another factor that helps contribute to glowing skin is our beauty routines, therefore what we put on our skin is also important too.
In Mauritius for example there is a popular scrub used for dry skin and so today, you can get to explore it in your own home.
Mauritius inspired Face Scrub (For Dry skin)
What you will need: Ingredients:
- 1 cup of rice,
- 1 cup of spring water,
- 1 cup of sweet almond oil.
Directions: For up to 2 hours, soak the equivalent of a cup of rice in your spring water, then let it air dry, (if it can dry the mixture in the sun that’s even better)
Once the rice is dries out, the contents should be mixed with the cup of sweet almond oil producing the desired facial scrub.
How to Apply: Apply in circular motions on the face to allow the rice to exfoliate the skin while the oil will serve as a moisturiser this can be applied to the face once a week.
