Skincare 101: Homemade Facial Scrubs

Hey guys!

So today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite homemade facials that have been part of my beauty routine for a while now.  Let’s start, shall we?

Honey and sugarHoney and Brown Sugar Facial Scrub: This is my favorite scrubs for so many reasons…the main one is that is super easy to make and the results are as good as any  facial scrub in a drug store.

We just need honey and brown sugar if you don’t have brown sugar you can use the regular one.  Normally I use one tablespoon of each and then put them on a bowl and mix them until we get some sort of paste. Before applying it to your face remember to wash it.  In my personal experience I always massage my face for a few minutes avoiding the eye area, then just wash it off with warm water.

 

Tomato and sea saltTomato with Sea Salt Scrub: Okay, so this is one unlike the first one is like though love for your skin. This is one is perfect for dark spots in our face or even for oily skins is a great suggestion. This facial, thanks to the tomato is rich in vitamins like A and C.

For this one, we need: Half of a tomato but just the inner part, one tablespoon of olive oil and 1 1/2 or 2 tablespoons of sea salt. We take all the pulp from the tomato and add the salt and olive oil (extra virgin) mix it until it all comes together. Wash your face and then apply the paste. Massage your face for a few minutes and again wash it off with cold water.

olive oil and sea saltOlive Oil and Sugar Scrub: This is really good if you have a dry skin and during winter. Basically this is a hydrating-scrub recipe.

We just need 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, again if  you don’t have brown sugar go for the regular one, I checked some online recipes just to be sure and some of them add lemon juice or scented oils but this is really  an extra and depends on the person. Mix all this ingredients, massage your face and then wash it off.

Lemon and sea saltLemon with Sea Salt Scrub: This is one is a bit more aggressive to our face due to its components, however, I find it quite useful for black head and dead cells.

We need the juice of a half the lemon, 1 tablespoon of sea salt and a bit of water. We mix all the ingredients and I massage this for about a minute or two since the mask includes lemon and for me that is something that can hurt your skin. After that I wash it off with cold water and let my face dry or tap it with a towel until it’s dry.

Don’t forget to moisturize your face after the whole process, do this once or twice jus don’t over exfoliate your skin and also, I would recomen to do this at night so your face can rest and absorb the benefits this scrubs offer to our skin.
