DIY Facial Scrub

Updated on December 27, 2011

SKIP STORE BOUGHT FACIALS

Here is a fun DIY facial scrub that will not only save you money, but will also leave your face feeling fantastic! You may even be unaware that you have some great facial products in your own pantries. Most store bought products contain a lot of alcohol which dries out your skin. In the coming winter months no one needs to have dry skin. Also most store bought products tend to test on animals. Thankfully many companies have signed pledges with the caringconsumer.com (EX. Alba, Almays etc). With this recipe you there are no mysteries and you will know what is going onto your face.

THINGS YOU NEED:

  • Sugar or Brown Sugar (I recommend sugar in raw form so its less processed)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Great for dry skin)
  • Honey (Miracle Worker!)
  • Container (I recommend a little jar)

Brown Sugar Scrub

1) I tend to start off by mixing 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 3 tablespoons of raw sugar. Mix these together.


2). Next start with 1 tablespoon of the honey and add it to the olive oil and sugar mix. Mix these together and continue to add honey until it reaches your desired texture. It should be gooey and slightly sticky so it can stay on your dampened face.

3). I suggest applying it to a clean and damp face. Gently massage your face with the mixture on in little circular movements. This will help remove dead skin.

4). Rinse off the facial scrub with warm water and follow with a natural moisturizer. Avoid products that have a lot of alcohol in them.

NOTE: EVEN THOUGH THESE INGREDIANTS ARE NATURAL AS WITH ALL BEAUTY PRODUCTS ALWAYS HAVE A SMALL TEST AREA ON YOUR BODY IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN.

Personally I have sensitive skin and I have never had problems with this scrub. It is really great and works wonders. I SUGGEST DOING THIS SCRUB 1-2 TIMES PER WEEK. It makes my skin glow. ENJOY!

      Thank you for this recipe! It sounds so simple to do :) I'm thinking this would be a great gift idea...it would be easy to mix up a large batch and put into some pretty jars. It's good to know too that you have not had a problem with it though you have sensitive skin...sounds like a great facial scrub. Thank you for sharing :)

      Now this is cool! I'll pass this onto my fiance. When I was studying massage I learned how to make bath salts which was about the extent of my skin cleansing education. Welcome to HubPages by the way, your off to a great start!
