Homemade Facial Scrub How-to

18 May

It’s time to scrub away that dry dull winter skin and get ready for the summer sun with this super easy homemade face scrub!

Made with simple, natural ingredients (that most of us already have at home) this scrub has quickly become a staple in my skin care regime!

Oatmeal and aloe are fabulous skin-calming ingredients, brown sugar a gentle scrubber and skin softener, and the lemon juice works as an astringent.

Whip one up today!

Oatmeal and Brown Sugar Face Scrub

You will need:

2 tbsp ground oatmeal

2 tbsp aloe (I go straight to the source and chop off a limb from my aloe plant!)

2 tbsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp lemon juice

Mix all of the ingredients really well in a small bowl, give it a sniff (yum!) and apply to your face in a gentle circular motion.  Let it sit on the skin for about 10 minutes to do it’s thing!

Rinse it all off and Ta-Daa!  Super soft, happy skin.
