DIY facial exfoliating scrub recipes for healthier skin.

Why would we want to make scrubs to gently exfoliate our skin?
By gently removing dull dead skin you can let the new layer of skin be healthy causing more beautiful skin with a healthy glow. Exfoliating skin once or twice a week can rejuvenate your skin, bring that healthy glow to your skin. The gentile exfoliation process rids the skin of any dry, dull dry dead skin cells from the surface of the body. By removing the dead cells you aid in helping pores not becoming clogged & the result is skin that feels clean, refreshed & rejuvenate skin. By preventing clogged pores you can prevent larger pores, blackheads, pimples & acne.

Facial scrub #1: Boost the magnesium in your skin while also exfoliation and deep cleansing by mixing Epsom salt with baking soda on a wet face. Massage gently in circles, wash off with cool water and pat dry. For even more benefit let sit on skin several minutes before rinsing off. Follow with a healthy skin oil like Argan oil.Face Collage

Facial scrub #2: You can simply use just epsom salt on wet face & work in & let sit till dry then wash off & rub in raw coconut oil, I have also used the Epsom salt mixed with the coconut oil together on skin 3 parts epsom salt to 1 part coconut oil. You can also try: Epsom salt with ground pink salt, Epsom salt with borax, epsom salt & baking soda, Epsom salt & honey, Epsom salt is awesome.

Facial scrub #3: Mix ground pink salt or sugar into jojoba oil or another oil of choice. Using 3 parts of the sugar 2 1 part oil.

Facial scrub #4:  Mix 1/4 cup borax. 1/4 cup baking soda 1/4 cup sugar, 1/8 cup hardwood activated charcoal powder (yes very black), 1/4 cup Calcium Montmorillonte Clay Minerals clay powder, 10 to 20 drops of Tea tree oil.

Facial scrub #5: Mix 2 tbsp rosehip oil, 1 tbsp granulated sugar or ground pink salt, 4 drops of essential oil of choice. Directions: Mix together & apply to damp skin, massage in a circular motion being gentle, rinse with warm water & towel dry.

Facial scrub #6: Mix aloe vera gel & food grade diatomaceous earth together, about equal amounts, wash face & let sit a few minutes & rinse off.

These facial scrubs are great to use on lips to & can help with dry cracked lips, they are also great used on any part of the body needing exfoliated & moisturized.

Reminder to scrub in small circles on skin gently so as to remove dead skin but not to irritate skin.

One thought on “DIY facial exfoliating scrub recipes for healthier skin

  1. I have been interested in making a few “beauty” products. With very sensitive skin, it is hard to find products to fit my needs.
    After reading the ingredients on some of the products sold in stores, it makes me shudder to think about even putting them on my body & face.
    Your recipes for these scrubs are so simple! I will definitely be giving some of the a try!
    I have been learning about essential oils & looking forward to incorporating these into beauty products also.
    Thank you for sharing Cheri!!
