SELF LOVE: Homemade pomegranate facial scrub

Pomegranates have been cultivated since ancient times, and science has found surprising benefits for this amazing fruit😊. Research shows that the seeds may slow aging, halt the spread of cancer and improve heart health.
:::
What’s more, this tasty treat is low in calories 😉 (only around 105 for an average-sized fruit) in addition to being loaded with nutrients. High in vitamin C and potassium, the bright red fruit also boasts high levels of antioxidants.
:::
And if you eat the seeds rather than drinking the tangy juice, you’ll have added fiber in your diet as well 😉
:::
Ingredients:
🔸️ 2-3 tablespoons of honey 🍯
🔸️ 1/2 cup crushed pomegranate seeds with the juice
🔸️ 1/2 cup white sugar
:::
➡️ Start by cutting open the fruit. Make a slit with a sharp knife and then pry the halves open. You can do this in the sink or in a bowl of water to prevent the deep dark red juice from splattering and potentially staining your clothes or counter 😉
➡️ Once the fruit is open, start picking the seeds off. Again, you can do this while the fruit is submerged in a bowl of water. The seeds will sink and the white fleshy part floats making it easy to separate.
➡️ Pour the honey into a bowl and add the seeds. Crush the seeds with a wooden spoon. Add the sugar and stir. You can use more sugar if you want a thicker scrub.
:::
You can either leave the crushed seeds in the scrub or remove them after you’ve juice them.
