Over a year ago, I started making my own beauty products and they have been so amazing, my skin has been feeling so amazing, that I won’t look back.
Last year I made a couple of scrubs: a vanilla lip scrub and an oatmeal facial scrub. I have been using both a lot. The lip scrub was mostly used in autumn and winter when the combination of the heating being on and the cold outside leaves my lips feeling like paper sand. It is handy having the lip scrub handy and ready to use. A quick scrub, some Vaseline and as good as new.
The oatmeal facial scrub has also been working its magic. It leaves your skin so ridiculously soft and smooth but, let’s face it, it was messy. The shower, the sink… they looked like half of my face had just fallen off, so I have been looking for a scrub as effective but a bit less messy, and I believe I have found it!
For this scrub I decided to use to coconut oil rather than olive oil (don’t tell my family in Spain! They might take away my passport!). We all know how amazing coconut oil so I took a some from Mr B’s stash to make the face scrub.
You will need:
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon chia seeds
- Mix the ingredients together and store in a clean jar.
- To use, dampen face and apply scrub in a circular motion to damp face.
- Allow the mixture to set for two minutes before using a wet washcloth to remove.
- Splash cold water on your face when you’ve finished.
- Store in fridge for 3-5 days
I love using it just after the shower. My face feels amazing and it makes me feel like a million dollars!
Scrub the winter of your face and get your skin ready for the summer.
