We were out the other day getting a facial to get our skin ‘spring’ ready, and yes whilst it was quite relaxing the results didn’t balance out the cost! This got us thinking that whilst nobody wants pimply, oily or dry skin the cost of getting a regular facial can be quite expensive and futile. So we’ve done some research to find out the best exfoliation recipes for you to create your own! Most scrubs can be made from ingredients you already own, so trying and testing which is best for you does not mean you will spend all your $$$!!
Baking Soda Scrub
Perfect for everyday use.
2 to 3 Tbsp. Baking soda Small amount of water
Mix the ingredients into a paste. Using a circular motion, apply to face and gently scrub.
Slightly more potent than the baking soda scrub, this works best on a 2 to 3 day interval.
2 to 3 Tbsp. Cornmeal Small amount of water
Mix and apply in the same manner as baking soda scrub.
Rose Almond Face Scrub
To brighten and soften skin.
1 tsp rosewater 1/2 tsp almond flour or finely ground almonds.
Mix into paste and apply.
A stimulating, thoroughly cleansing 3-in-1 scrub! Smooths, tones, and hydrates.
1 Tbsp. ground oatmeal (use steel cut oats, not instant) 1 tsp. lemon juice 2 tsp. yogurt
Combine and apply. Optional: let your scrub double as a mask! Let it sit a few minutes before scrubbing and rinsing.
