How to Make a Rosewater and Almond Scrub

DIY Spa Treatment: Soothing Rosewater Scrub

Now, I'm not going to knock Retin-A, or the generic composition thereof, because it has given me clearer, smoother skin. However, from an around-the-mouth and chin perspective, I've got some issues. Blistex helped soothe the deep cracks in the corners of my mouth, but as for the surrounding area, it looks as if I've been stranded on the frozen tundra for days — chapped, red, flaking skin and all. This is where a rosewater and almond scrub comes into play.

Known for its cooling, hydrating, and antibacterial properties, rosewater provides a gentle astringent effect on the skin, which is perfect for those with sensitivities. Meanwhile the almonds exfoliate and provide moisture. Do you love DIY?

To make the scrub, first finely grind some chopped almonds ($6) using a food processor, a mortar and pestle ($8), or by pounding them down in a baggie. Next, add just a few drops of rosewater to the almonds to create a paste, adding more if necessary. Try C.O. Bigelow Triple Rose Water ($25) or Acqua Distillata Alle Rose ($9). Gently rub the mixture into the skin to exfoliate and rinse off. It's as easy as that. Allergic to nuts? Make an exfoliating rosewater toner instead by mixing together about two parts rosewater to one part witch hazel.

Ok. In my opinion, almonds do not make a good scrub. It scratches the skin instead of gently scrubbing them. rounded granules are better for scrubbing. Although, the hard ones are good for the sole of your foot.
