I love using facial scrubs. There is nothing like stepping out of the shower with a bright red face to feel super clean.
Although I love the feeling of the facial scrub deep cleaning my face, I find that if I use it twice a week my skin tends to get drier and my ph balance gets disrupted. I know, I know, first world problems (shakes head in shame).
As you all know, I am on a mission to make my own beauty products (Body Scrub, Lip Balm, Lip Scrub, Face Mask) and so far I have been really amazed with the results and how little I have had to invest on them. Well. prepare to be amazed again. This is so simple and yet so wonderful.
HOME-MADE OATMEAL FACIAL SCRUB:
- Two parts oatmeal (ground up finely in a blender or food processor)
- One part honey
- One part olive oil oil . You can also use sweet almond oil or coconut oil, whichever you prefer or have handy
Mix all the ingredients together until you have a thick sticky mixture. It is is too sticky or lumpy you can always add more oil or few drops of water.
Clean your face and smooth the mixture onto your clean face and rub into skin for a couple of minutes and then rinse off. Your face will feel not only deep cleaned but also moisturized – the perfect balance!
It is without a doubt the best facial scrub I have ever used. Much much better than any of the store-bought product and 100% natural.
