  • Miracle Whip for Dead Skin Removal

    Does anybody do this regularly to remove dead skin? I have on and off for a few years now and it is amazingly effective and cheap. Thing is, I'm wondering if ingredients like soybean oil and high fructose corn syrup are okay for my skin. I certainly would never eat that stuff!!

    I would be more concerned about the oiliness than the sugar. (A number of cosmetic ingredients that are based on sugar or glucose are very beneficial and kind to the skin.)

    The simple answer is that if you've been doing it for years and your skin benefits from it, then carry on. Just keep an eye on your skin on a day to day basis and if you notice any clogged pores, breakouts, redness etc then stop.

      Thanks Gisele. I've no problem with the residual oiliness - a lot of it comes off as I gently rub my skin to remove the miracle whip mayo and loosened dead skin. Then I just wash thoroughly with a gentle cleanser. It's just so effective and non-irritating as far as skin sloughers go but I think I will only use it once or twice a week as I don't like the idea of my body absorbing the HFCS and soybean oil even in small amounts in my skin.

        Have you tried a homemade sugar body scrub?

          I've heard about it, but haven't used it yet. I understand that the reason Miracle Whip is better for exfoliation than regular mayo though is because of the added vinegar.

            Regular mayo doesn't work - you'll just get painful zits. Miracle whip is incredible for exfoliation. The dead skin comes off in balls. Your skin feels really smooth and soft afterwards.

            Anyway, Kim, yes I have tried other natural scrubs like sugar in the past. They're just too irritating for my skin. Thanks for the suggestion and link though.

              SO you just what, apply and wait a few minutes for Miracle Whip to work?

                  Just apply a thin layer of Miracle whip to your face (avoid around eye area), wait up to 10 minutes and then using your fingertips, gently rub your skin in a circular motion. Dead skin will start coming off in small balls. Keep doing until most if not all dead skin is removed. Wash skin thoroughly to remove residual oil.

                  Again, do not use regular mayonnaise. Your skin will be sorry.

                    Hi Ya!!!!!!


                    Kind of stupid question but what's the difference between miracle whip and mayonnaise??? I mean I make mayo at home and but it in my hair and I've put that on my face and I don't remember having issues (will have to pay more attention). Could it be I'm not adding something in my mayo that would cause problems??? Would I be better of making miracle whip for my face and if so how do ya make miracle whip???

                    Once apon a time a girl was born as happy as can be. But with time she would look in the mirror and say," Who's that? It can't be me!" For in her minds eye she was strong, healthy, and could do anything. "So you see that girl in the reflecting glass could NOT be me." But at last she know it was true, so she set out on a great quest. With T-Tapp, health food, and a new sence of herself by her side, she traveled the unbeaten path. And with every curve she knew, with all her heart and soul, that one day (maybe soon) she would look in the mirror and say, "I was never lost, but now I'm found. And I'm HAPPY with who I am now and with who I was because if I wasn't that way I wouldn't be where I am today." And with that she keeps on walking with a smile in her heart and an open soul, knowing that when she comes to that mirror she has total faith in what will unfold. ---- The story of my life

                      just for some added imput, sugar is very cleansing and it kills harmful bacteria topically, but it feeds it internally. I add it to my poultices for my face and it makes my skin look great.

                      I'll have to check in to the Miracle Whip as long as it doesn't have ingredients known to be carcinogenic (anything propyl, etc)

                        Miracle Whip is marketed as "salad dressing" versus mayonnaise. It's sweeter (thanks to HCFS) and has vinegar. The vinegar may be responsible for the intense exfoliation. All I know is the stuff works.

                        Commercial mayonnaise produces cystic zits on my face. I know this from trying it out when I ran out of Miracle whip. Never again.

                        FYI - fumes from the vinegar can be irritating to your eyes so take care not to bring the MW too close to your eye area.

                        PamelaW - Just checked the ingredient list on MW. Nothing carcinogenic like typical skincare products, just your basic processed North American condiment.

                          Hi Ya!!!!!!


                          The stuff I make at home has eggs, vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, coconut oil, some gaur gum, and honey (don't have recipe in my hands right now, but I think that it). So if it's the vinegar in it my stuff should work just as good that. Thanks!

                            Your homemade mayo is worth trying. I don't if it's a certain combination of the ingredients that make the Miracle Whip effective. For a homemade version of Miracle Whip, I found this link:

                              Thanks for the link!!!! that recipe is very close to me own (mine even calls for mustard, but I don't add normally). I forgot to say I do add sea salt. Guar gum replaces flour for me (allergic to it if I put it in me so I figure I shouldn't put it on me). And honey replaces sugar. The only thing I don't use is water. Maybe I'll add more guar gum so I can add water. Sounds good


                              Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!
