Don’t get me wrong, I love to visit my local spa to get a facial or pedicure. However since I am frugal and mindful of my budget, I do try to make what I can at home. This time I made a Homemade Exfoliant Face Scrub.
A few years back, I did some research on Do It Yourself Face Scrubs. I read that Honey and Olive Oil naturally moisturize and Sugar helps your skin rejuvenate its cells. After reading this and looking at other recipes, I created my own exfoliation mix.
I suggest doing this scrub before you go to bed. If you apply this to your feet, afterward make sure you put on some socks so you don’t slip.
Here is the recipe:
1/4 cup of Sugar
1/4 cup of Olive Oil
1 tsp of Honey
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
Directions: Mix all these together and apply to your skin. How I applied this is further down the page.
Tip: Before you apply this all over, you should test a small area to make sure you don’t have a reaction. This mix works for me, however, I am not a dermatologist so if you have sensitive skin definitely keep that in mind before your apply anything to your face.
I rubbed this mix onto my face in circles and kept it away from my eyes. (Be careful of your eyes, since that skin is very sensitive and you don’t want to get sugar in them). I then let the mixture sit on my face as I applied it to my hands, feet, and elbows. I then rinsed it all off.
My skin is soft after I do this, and my pores look great. It feels so good to spoil myself, and it feels great that I didn’t spend a fortune on pampering.
