How to make your own face scrub!

Natural moisturising face scrub

 

As the winter months progress my skin seems to be getting worse and worse, dry patches and redness have taken over my face. So, I really wanted to find something moisturising and soothing to revive and repair my skin in the winter months. I have put together a few different ingredients (which you can find in your kitchen cupboard!) that are known to have great benefits for your skin. My skin felt so soft and smooth after this I really do recommend you try it!  Use this every other day or once a week (depending on your skin type) for best results.

What you need:

  • Fine grain sea salt

  • Almond Oil and/or Grapeseed Oil

  • Nutmeg

     

  1. Cleanse your face with water

  2. Mix all the ingredients in a small tub/bowl using a small spoon.

  3. Use only a small amount and start dotting the mixture in the different areas of your face such as forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.

  4. Use your fingers and gently rub the mixture in a rotating motion.

  5. Wash you face to remove the mixture.

About the ingredients:

Sea salt- Detoxifies and bring your skins natural oils to the surface.

Almond Oil- Softens your skin by helping it keep its natural moisture balance.

Grapeseed Oil- High in anti-oxidants and great for getting rid of spots and blemishes.

Nutmeg- Removes blemishes and acne scars.

    • Yes you can, olive oil is amazing! Works great as a facial cleanser.(tried and tested!) It is full of antioxidants too and is a wonderful moisturiser and that’s why in places such as the Middle East it is so popular. I chose the other two because I wanted to test them out, but olive oil is just as good! I might have to do some recipes for olive oil… 🙂

    • Definitely not daily. I use mine just once a week because I don’t want to scrub all the good oils out. For other people it might be better to use this every other day but it depends on your skin type to be honest.
