HomeMade Scrubs

Happy Tuesday everyone. Hope ye all had a great weekend.

I had a few requests on my facebook page about this so here it is.

Has your skin ever needed a real pick me up but pay day had been weeks ago?
Don't worry, most of these can be found in your kitchen already.

Lemon Facial Mask

This will exfoliate and Moisturise your skin. Get 1 lemon, squeeze the juice into a bowl. And mix with 1/ cup of olive oil or sweet almond oil. The lemon juice will also brighten your skin :)

Baking Soda

Baking soda is the main ingredient in most expensive exfoliating products you pick up at the chemist. Make sure its a natural one. It can be used on your face as well as your body.

Sugar

Get yourself some Sugar and massage oil, can be olive, almond grapeseed. etc. And mix together. Quick, easy and super cheap exfoliant. And its also amazing for your skin as sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid. Glycolic acid boosts new cell production and breaks down the protein that keeps the dead cells hanging onto your skin.


Oatmeal/Porridge

This is very gentle so it's perfect for sensitive skin. It's also very moistersing and a natural Anti-Inflammatory. If you have a blender, pop a cup of oatmeal into and finely ground it. Mix it with some buttermilk, natural yogurt and/or honey. Scrub into your face and let it sit for 15-20 minutes to moisturise your skin, rinse and wash as usual.




You can also add the sugar to the lemon facial mask to make a scrub out of it. The smell is so refreshing so perfect for a morning scrub.


These are the only ones I've tried up to now, and I've loved them all. They are so cheap as well, for those on a budget. And majority of them are natural products which are the best for your skin.

If there's anything else you want to know or ask, just pop a comment below:)
