I never knew of this root plant until my supplier drew my attention to it. She made a body scrub with the powder and sent a sample to me. I immediately used it to prepare a body scrub for me and sis. We absolutely loved the feel on our skin. The results were amazing. I still make it for clients(The recipe is listed on my ebook, it's always a winner, so get a copy). 

Beetroot is good for health in general. It is being used in treatment of cancers but for the skin, it lightens, smoothens and make the complexion glow. 
I use it when making scrubs so as to get rid of spots, improve dull complexion, slough away dead skin cells and make the skin smoother and softer.

The recipe I use occasionally is listed below (Not the same as that in my book).This recipe would be able to make a small bowl of scrub that can be used immediately. 

DIY Beetroot Scrub
Brown sugar or Gram flour : 8 tbsps
 Vitamin E Capsules : 5
Beetroot powder:8 tbsp
Honey:3 tbsps
Sandalwood powder : 8 tbsps.
Pure lemon juice: 2 tbsps
Coconut milk :5 tbsps 
Puncture the vitamin capsules into a clean plate to get the oil. Mix all ingredients together to form a smooth paste. Apply on the skin in a circular motion and leave on for a total of 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
These scrub is a lightening scrub. It is meant to revive dull complexion, prevent acne, cleanse the skin to give it a luminous glow. Use twice a week to give your complexion a boost. 
I hope you love this. Until my next post... stay beautiful....
