Homemade Face Scrubs are for you if you’re looking for something a little more delicate and refined than the heavy exfoliating power that you often get from a body scrub. And though there are many great face scrubs on the market from companies like Callyssee Cosmetics, it’s also definitely doable to make your own. The key is to choose the right ingredients and combine them for the perfect blend of soothing and exfoliating power. Here are four great options.
#1 Brown Sugar Scrub
Blend a quarter cup of brown sugar with an eight cup of olive oil. Then add in a tablespoon of cocoa powder and a dash of vanilla extract. Brown sugar has a finer texture than white sugar. That is actually perfect for the face. Added to this, the wonderful aroma of these ingredients is sure to soothe and relax you.
#2 Honey and Oatmeal Scrub
With a simple blend of a quarter cup uncooked oats, an eighth cup of honey and an eighth cup of olive oil, you can create a face scrub that hydrates and nourishes, making it perfect for dry skin.
#3 Coffee Face Scrub
With four tablespoons of finely ground coffee, four tablespoons of cocoa powder and eight tablespoons of coconut milk, you’ll have a scrub with all the exfoliating and antioxidant power of coffee along with some other nourishing ingredients. Few facial scrub ingredients can bring as much antioxidant potential to your skin as fresh coffee can. And the ground are the perfect texture for gentle exfoliating.
#4 Tropical Fruit Scrub
Get even more antioxidant punch by mashing together a quarter cup of cubed pineapple and papaya respectively. Then mix well with two tablespoons of brown sugar, and one tablespoon each of almond oil and honey. The end result is a wonderful-smelling, relaxing facial scrub that renews and refreshes your face with a big boost of vitamins and minerals.
