DIY Face Scrub - All Natural

Do you just love the way your face feels after scrubbing with an exfoliator? Now you can make your own all natural scrub at home with ingredients you already have.

Here is the simple recipe for a DIY facial scrub that exfoliates beautifully at a fraction of the cost.

Here's what you'll need:

Olive Oil

That's it! It's all natural and if you are worried about putting olive oil on your face, don't. It won't clog your pores or cause breakouts. It might get into your hairline though, so I recommend exfoliating right before your shower.

Mix together 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, and 2 tablespoons of honey. Stir it well to eliminate lumps.You will have some left over so save it in an air tight container and it will last about 3 weeks.

Wet your face with warm water and begin with about a tablespoon of scrub. Rub gently in a circular motion. Don't get too close to your eyes. Because this is an all natural scrub, remember to scrub your lips too for soft and supple lips. Scrub your eyebrows too since they collect dirt, makeup, and dead skin cells.

Rinse with warm water or just step into the shower and rinse. Don't soap your face after exfoliating because it could cause irritation.

Pat dry and moisturize as usual. Exfoliating once or twice a week is usually plenty. Even with the olive oil and honey to treat dry skin, over exfoliating can actually dry your skin.
