Make Your Own All Natural Exfoliating Scrub
An All Natural Exfoliating Scrub… Nourishing For The Skin & Easy To Make
Since I started using all natural skin care products on my face, my skin is a lot smoother and more youthful looking. My routine is a lot easier too. I start with this makeup remover, then wash with this all natural exfoliating scrub, made with honey and sugar.
Talk about simple! And I absolutely love the look and feel of my skin.
Did you know that we average loosing between 8-9 pounds of dead skin cells every year? And that 75-80% of the dust in your house is just dead skin cells? How’s that for gross!
The skin is the largest organ in our body and exfoliating regularly, removes the dead cells, and lets our moisturizer, if we’re using a good one, get into the deeper skin layers. That’s what gives us a smooth, glowing complexion instead of looking dull, dry and half dead.
One of the easiest and most natural ways to exfoliate and soften the skin is to use essential oils and ingredients straight out of our kitchen cabinet.
I exfoliate about 4 times a week, but if you have sensitive skin, I’d suggest just once a week.
Taking care of your skin not only gives you a “glow”, but when you look good, you feel good!
Here are some other benefits of exfoliating:
- Helps to reduce and/or eliminate skin breakouts on your neck and chest
- Increases circulation and provides nourishment to the skin
- Helps to detox the skin
- Skin absorbs moisture easier and penetrates more deeply when the skin has been exfoliated
- Reduces the appearance of age spots
- Eliminates dry flaky skin on knees and elbows
- Helps to prevent ingrown hairs
- Smooths rough, bumpy “chicken skin”
You don’t need to spend a lot of money making an all natural exfoliating scrub. You can use ingredients right out of your kitchen cabinet.
Granulated sugar is a natural exfoliant. Mixing it with a little lemon juice, and honey, which contains powerful antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, and you have a fantastic and nourishing face scrub.
Here’s the easy way to make an all natural exfoliating scrub:
- 2 teaspoon raw honey (locally harvested if possible.)
- 4 teaspoon table sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Combine the ingredients and mix well. Store in a glass container.
This recipe lasts me about 2 weeks. I’ve doubled the recipe a few times when we were going on a trip, but at home, it’s so easy to make, I just use the recipe above.
I hope you’ll take the time and effort to try this natural exfoliating scrub. I really think you’ll be pleased with the results…. and so will your pocketbook.
Do you use an exfoliating scrub? Do you buy it or make your own?
