Enzymes are one of the hottest ingredients in skincare right now. Not only do they majorly up your glow game, but they gently exfoliate the skin leaving you with a brighter, clearer complexion. The only problem is – like so many great skincare ingredients – they have a slightly higher price tag, but don’t worry, we have a much more affordable option… Yup, there’s a DIY alternative, and this particular enzyme scrub has been one of our faves for years.

The key ingredient for this scrub is pineapple. Pineapple contains the fruit enzyme bromelain, which acts as a gentle exfoliator by removing dead skin cells that clog pores and make your skin appear dull. It’s also a natural source of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects against skin-damaging free radicals and UV light. The raw oats will work as a natural anti-inflammatory, and just like honey, they’re a natural humectant, so the scrub will draw moisture back into the skin. It’s also great for acne-prone skin as it’ll help reduce the swelling of any existing pimples, and as honey is an antibacterial, it’ll help to balance skin.


2-3 slices of fresh pineapple
1 tablespoon of raw oats
1 teaspoon of raw honey

Blend the pineapple until it creates a smooth mixture, then add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix well. Apply the scrub onto cleansed skin, gently massage the scrub in circular motions onto your face, and leave on for a few minutes. Wash with warm water and follow with your fave moisture.

Remember always to do a patch test first, especially if you have sensitive skin. Let us know if you try this scrub at home; we hope you love it as much as we do!
