I’ve been on a bit of a kick adding freeze dried fruit to my recipes lately. So it was only a matter of time before I found a way to work it into a DIY’s as well!
A little while ago we made coconut sugar scrub which is the best for soft skin all year round. Sugar scrub isn’t suitable for your face, so what are we to do? Well, that is where Pineapple Facial comes in. My sister discovered this trick a little while back and the results I’ve gotten have been fabulous. This is the quickest facial treatment I’ve ever tried with the most dramatic results. Normally, a facial takes a good 45 minutes between the scrub, mask, steam, toner, and finally moisturizing.
I haven’t had the best luck with facial scrubs as they tend to irritate my super sensitive skin. However anytime you exfoliate, your face it is going to look better without several layers of dead skin dulling your complexion.
This is the third post in a 3-part series of facial care, and it is perhaps, the most important. Steps 1 and 2, the Pineapple Facial and Baking Soda Exfoliation are primarily exfoliation with some cleansing. This Oil Method Cleansing is not only cleansing, but also mildly exfoliating and moisturizing.

I just got done rinsing this mask off in the shower, and I love how smooth my skin feels right now. I’ve been putting collagen into my green smoothies for the last few months. But it was just recently I thought of putting it into a facial mask as well.
I’m not sure why I’ve never made lotion bars before, but I’m making up for lost time now! They’re even easier to make than homemade lotion because there’s no need to be emulsifying liquid together with oil. Lotion bars are solid, with no liquid ingredients at all, which also makes them incredibly shelf stable.
