How Can I Make My Own Face Scrub at Home?
All kinds of wonderful face scrubs are available on the market to shed away dead skin cells and leave your face looking renewed and refreshed. But every once in a while, you can try making your own organic face scrub at home. Fortunately, many effective ones are surprisingly easy to make. We spoke to the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics for their top picks.
Here are 4 Face Scrub Recipes:
#1 Brown Sugar & Honey Scrub
Brown sugar has a texture that’s perfect for the face, and honey has natural antibacterial properties. Simply mix honey and brown sugar in equal parts. Then add a tablespoon of olive oil and a drop or two of your favorite essential oil like lavender.
#2 Oatmeal Face Scrub
Oatmeal is another soothing exfoliating agent that’s great for the face. Just mix a half-cup of oats with two tablespoons of honey, and add in some nutmeg and essential oils. It will smell wonderful and leave your face feeling great, as well.
#3 Almond Milk Scrub
Made with all dry ingredients, this scrub works great and will be kept fresh for a long time. All you need is a half-cup of finely ground almond meal, a half-cup of bentonite clay and two tablespoons of milk powder. Mix them well together. Then, simply add a bit of water to create a paste when you’re ready to use it.
#4 Yeast & Yogurt Scrub
By mixing 1 ½ tablespoons of brewer’s yeast, two teaspoons each of yogurt and brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of honey, you’ll have a soothing scrub that’s sure to keep your face looking renewed and refreshed. Just be sure to mix them thoroughly before applying them to the face.
