DO IT YOURSELF FACIAL & BODY SCRUB

DO IT YOURSELF FACIAL & BODY SCRUB

Want to know how to make your own facial and body scrub at home? With everything out there nowadays, it's hard to know what's natural (things that come from your kitchen and garden) and what's processed. Here are some natural ingredients to apply to your face to make it look more glowing and flawless:

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium cucumber peeled and grated - use a cheese grater
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt or sea salt

In a small bowl, mix the cucumber and the buttermilk together. Add the salt and blend the mixture into a thick paste. Wait five minutes. Apply the scrub to your face and body making sure to pay attention to dry areas like your knees, elbows and ankles, and then rinse off the scrub.

Tip: If you are going to use this scrub in the shower, use before shaving so that the salt doesn't irritate your newly shaved skin.

I am going to try this because my skin is quite sensitive and is easily irritated by the brands in the store.

i love homemade stuff like this too. try grinding oatmeal into a fine powder, mix it with brown sugar and add just a dab of olive oil to make a paste. it makes your skin silky smooth! watch out though, the oil can make your tub slick so work carefully. also, for the those girls thinking about shelling out $$ for 'designer' lip scrubs. mix a lil bit of honey with brown sugar and you get the same effect without the worry that if you swallow it you will gag.

I can eat cucumber (but I don't), but for some reason if I use it on my face I get a huge rash. I'll have to try the oats.

I use a handful of oats and water to scrub my face with. It's a gentle and effective exfoliant. I tell all my friends to try it!
