Juicing is a major component of today’s fitness lifestyle. Celebrites all over Hollywood and Manhattan are attending their favorite hot yoga class and celebrating their workout with a refreshing green juice. But as many green juices sold by popular brands such as Juice Served Here can be upwards of $8 a bottle, it has become more cost-efficient to juice at home, hence the rise in popularity of buying juicers.
So now you’re juicing at home and you feel like a budgeting girl boss. But what do you do with that pulp that you worked so hard to strain from your juice? You can actually turn it into a DIY sugar scrub, eye serum, or mask! Add citrus fruits to your scrubs, cucumbers to your eye serums, and berries to your facials! NOW you’re the ultimate budgeting girl boss.
Here are FIVE amazing juice and/or beauty pulp recipes we love! We highly recommend using the Hurom HH Elite Series Slow Juicer to get the best results.
