A reader recently emailed me about face scrubs. She was looking for a new one and wanted to know about my favorite.
Since I have been using the Clarisonic , I don’t feel the need to exfoliate my face using a scrub. But every now I like to get a deep down scrubbing. I’ve never found the need to go out and spend a ton of money on a scrub when nature makes the best ingredients.
One being good ole’ olive…
I use olive oil for EVERYTHING! I use it as a carrier oil for body concoctions. I use it on my locs. I apply it to my cuticles each night. I use it in my spring and spinach salads. And for my omelets. Olive oil is just divine.
This scrub is ridiculously easy to make.
I take a bowl of organic brown sugar
And pour in a good amount of olive oil. I don’t measure but if you are trying this for the first time, go easy on the olive oil if you have oily skin.
I mash it all together with my fingers…
Sometimes I like to add in a little oatmeal. I normally crush the oats with my mortar and pestle but laziness will prevent you from doing the little things. Ha!
And then I apply!
It really is that simple. I have also used baking soda and castile soap as a scrub. All natural and totally affordable.
Do you make your scrubs?
