The pit of the avocado is probably the part you toss out first and foremost. But, like the rest of the avocado, the pit has many health benefits that you may be overlooking! For instance, the avocado pit make a perfect DIY facial scrub. As we all know, facial scrubs can get pricey, especially ones with as many benefits for your skin as avocados have. So, for an eco-friendly and wallet-friendly replacement, try this homemade avocado facial scrub the next time you want to treat yourself to a spa treatment! Watch the video below and see how this beauty DIY is done.
STEP 1: Cut the avocado in half and spoon out the pit. Make sure to rub off any excess avocado lingering on the pit.
STEP 2: Let the pit dry for 3-5 days.
STEP 3: Cut the pit into fourths, the smaller the better.
STEP 4: Throw the cut up pits into the blender and blend until you have small chunks. You don’t want it TOO fine or you won’t get any of the exfoliating benefits.
STEP 5: Add the avocado seed pieces into your favorite cleanser and mix thoroughly.
You’ll notice that the pit has oxidized and turned orange, so don’t panic. Once your DIY exfoliate is created, rub it all over your face EXCEPT the eye area – never scrub around the eye area! That skin is extremely thin and sensitive, too sensitive for a daily exfoliate.
