Make Your Own DIY Facial Scrubs At Home
Below are the best exfoliating face scrub recipes. You can make these scrubs easily at home using natural ingredients. They are safe & economical and so gentle; your skin will love them.
Just Two Ingredients Sugar Face Scrub
This two-ingredient facial scrub perhaps is the easiest of all scrubs. While sugar works as an effective scrub for the skin, olive oil (or coconut oil) makes the skin feel soft & supple.
You will need:
(i) Olive oil: 1 tablespoon, extra virgin (alternatively use pure coconut oil)
(ii) Sugar: 2 tablespoon, organic cane / granulated sugar
Mix the olive or coconut oil and sugar in a small bowl, and stir well to combine. Using gentle circular motions, rub the scrub gently into clean facial & neck skin for about a minute. Rinse with lukewarm water & pat dry with a clean, soft towel, leaving your skin smooth as silk.
Tip: You can increase the quantities proportionately to make more of the mix, and store in an airtight jar for up to 3 months. If you live in a hotter place, you may like to store the mixture in a fridge because coconut oil has relatively low melting point.
