METHOD:

Cut the pineapple in half, and spoon out the fruit and set aside leaving a 1cm edge in order to make the bowl. Seal the pineapple bowls and refrigerate.

Take the fruit and slice 8 thin pieces for garnish, then place the remainder in a reusable zip lock bag.

Cut the banana into bite sized pieces, and place in the zip lock bag with the pineapple.

Freeze for 4hrs, or overnight.

Take the frozen fruit, and put in your blender with all other ingredients. Blend until the consistency is thick but smooth, like ice cream.

Spoon the ice cream into the pineapple fruit bowls, add toppings and mint sprig, and take your instagram photo.

DIY Creambath Hair Spa at Home

Indonesian women are renowned for their sleek lustrous locks and part of their secret is a hair treatment known as a Hair Cream Bath. The ‘bath’ is a thick coat of conditioner that is meticulously massaged into your scalp and through every strand of hair.

DIY Scalp & Deep Conditioning Treatment – Glo Creambath 

  • Step 1: Put a hand towel in a bowl of hot water and wring out.
  • Step 2: Mix 1/4 cup coconut milk with 1tbs of raw honey and 1tbs of coconut oil (optional: add a few drops of your favourite essential oil available) plus 1/4 cup aloe vera gel or your favourite conditioner to make a DIY hair creambath.
  • Step3: First shampoo your hair and rinse and then massage the DIY hair creambath into your entire scalp and hair for about 3-minutes.
  • Step 4: Once complete, wrap a heated towel around your head, lay down, and close your eyes for at least 15 minutes or until towel is cool.
  • Step 5: Whilst you wait to rinse your hair, prep the Green Tea Hair Rinse by combining 3 green tea bags and 1 pot of hot water in a ceramic cup. Allow it to cool to room temperature, transfer into large non-breakable cup or bowl.
  • Step 6: Once you’ve rinsed the product from your hair, use the cooled green tea prepped as your final rinse. This will help from scalp to ends to diminish dandruff, stimulate follicles and make your hair shine.

DIY Body Scrub – Glo’s Signature Vanilla Essence

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! If you want to have the softest skin then try a body scrub while you are in the bath. Sugar scrubs are quite easy to mix up at home. And the subtle scent of Vanilla has been all time favourite at Glo!

The Base:

  1. One cup of table sugar.
  2. 1/4 cup of oil (olive, almond, coconut)

(Just remember 80% sugar to 20% oil)

VANILLA SUGAR SCRUB

1 cup of white sugar + 1/4 cup of coconut oil + 1 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract + 5 drops of vanilla essential oil

Directions:

  • Be careful not to scrub vigorously. Use a circular motion and work the scrub into your whole body. Avoid the eye area completely. This skin is delicate and should never be exfoliated with a scrub.
  • Rinse the face using warm water and finish with a nice cool splash of water to close pores pat skin dry with a clean towel.
