8 Homemade Scrubs for Every skin type.
My dear friends
Today we will learn something natural and you with made with love....
The stickiness of this season attracts a lot of dirt and impurities. Avoid it all by making these Homemade scrubs yourself . Yes, we know there are a ton of face scrubs out there, but it’s hard to find exactly the right one to fit your skin type. Which means that making a custom one to fit your skin’s needs is the way to go. Plus, you’ll already have half of the ingredients in your kitchen.
1 – Green Tea ScrubSuper easy to make but has the most incredible skin benefits.
1 green tea bag 1 brewed green tea 1 cup of granulated sugar Olive Oil
To get things started, brew one tea bag in half a cup of water and leave to cool.
Whilst the tea is cooling down, pour the sugar into the bowl and mix in roughly 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once combined, add in the contents of the un-brewed green tea bag and mix together. The loose tea from the bag will add a rougher texture to the scrub, making it more effective on the skin, allowing it to really buff away at any dead skin cells whilst the green tea will really help the skins softness and keep it supple. Once your brewed tea has cooled add this to the loose tea, sugar and olive oil mixture. You can then decant the scrub into a pot or jar of your choice and you are good to go. To spice up your body scrub and to make it that little bit more Autumnal, you can add in your own ingredients such as Vanilla or Cinnamon.
You may be wondering what the actual benefits are of using homemade body scrubs and, more importantly, why using green tea as an exfoliator is so good. Green tea is packed full of goodness and antioxidant that help calm, reduce redness, reveal radiance and create silky soft skin that looks healthy and has a glow all year around, making it the perfect scrub for this time of the year to help prolong the summer glow.
2 – Pomegranate Sugar Scrub
Pomegranates are full of skin preserving antioxidants, while white cane sugar provides a natural form of glycolic acid to help dissolve and push away dead skin cells.
INGREDIENTS 1⁄2cup pomegranate seeds 1⁄2cup white unbleached cane sugar 2teaspoons oil (such as avocado, sunflower, or vegetable oil)
1 -2drop essential oils, use your favorite if you don’t have any perhaps use a little vanilla (optional) or 1 -2 drop almond extract (optional)
DIRECTIONSIn a small bowl, mix the sugar and pomegranate seeds, crushing both with a spoon. Add the oil and mix. The pomegranate will scent the scrub, but if you want more scent, add a couple drops of your favorite essential oil. Massage gently onto damp skin. There should be enough for a full body scrub. Rinse off
4 – Coffee Body Scrub with Coconut Oil
This coffee body scrub exfoliates the skin and helps reduce the appearance of cellulite
Our skin is the largest organ in our body. It absorbs 60% – 80% of what it comes in contact with. When you use commercial cosmetic products, lotions, perfume, oils and scrubs, all of the ingredients in those products absorb right into your blood stream. The ingredients in these products can be toxic and are even known to attribute to allergies, cancer and birth defects. I recently found out that it is the caffeine in the scrub that supposedly helps reduce cellulite. I do not claim that this scrub will reduce cellulite (though that would be an added bonus) but I will tell you that coffee and coconut oil are rich in antioxidants, which are very beneficial for the skin.
1 cup ground organic coffee 1 cup organic sugar or salt 1/2 Cup organic coconut oil 1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon (optional) 1 Tablespoon vanilla (optional)
Instructions Melt coconut oil and allow it to cool but not solidify. Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container or mason jar. Use 1-2 times a week (or every day if you like). 5- Banana Sugar Body Scrub
When the bananas are starting to brown, grab those beauties and put them to use. This one skips the oil and relies purely on the benefit of banana and the gently abrasive sugar.
1 ripe banana
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract or your favorite essential oil (optional)
Smash ingredients together with a fork into a chunky goop. Don’t over-mash or it will become too thin. If you want a banana scrub for your face, reserve some of the banana and mash it separately without sugar. In the shower, pat the sugar mixture and gently massage over your body. For your face, gently massage plain banana there, avoiding the eye area. Rinse off with warm water.
6 –ROSE + CHAMOMILE DIY FACIAL SCRUB
You can find dried rose petals and chamomile in the bulk section at health food stores. And get this – it’s not even expensive! A couple of tablespoons of rose, chamomile, and hibiscus flowers were 80 cents at Whole Foods. I’ve never found anything that cheap at Whole Foods! I chatted with a gal getting dried roses for tea and learned that they have lots of vitamin C and contain pectin, malic and citric acids. And dried chamomile is commonly used in skincare for soothing irritated, dry skin.
1 tablespoon dried roses
1 tablespoon dried chamomile
1 tablespoon oats
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup any kind of mild oil like almond, olive, jojoba or sesame
Combine the dried flowers and oats in a coffee grinder and pulse until finely ground. Transfer to the sealable container and add honey and oil.
To use Dip a clean spoon into the jar and put a small amount in your palm. Gently apply the scrub using a circular motion and rinse with warm water. If kept sealed and no water gets into the jar, the scrub can last indefinitely. The scrub is mild enough to use several times a week.
7 – Homemade Honey Lemon Sugar Scrub
The logic behind these honey lemon scrubs is that they not only exfoliate, but also the lemon reduces oil and is packed with Vitamin C. The honey has anti-microbial properties and is said to help absorb impurities from the skin and moisturize. The coconut oil is for hydration.
What You Need:
2 cups of raw sugar
2-3 Tablespoons of Honey
1-2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil
The Juice from one lemon
Once again I went through a lot of Honey Lemon Sugar Scrub recipes, but I opted a basic, stripped down a recipe. I chose to use sugar, but some recipes called for salt. I also used coconut oil even though you could use olive oil or another oil if you prefer. I used 3 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, but you can do more or less.
Directions:Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Then fill your container(s).
8- Homemade Face Scrub Tomato
Cleanse the skin beforehand and remove all makeup.Pop on a headband to keep the face clear of hair.
Ingredients:1 medium or large tomato (green stalk intact)1-3 tbsp sugar (granulated)
Sharp knife Chopping board Side plate Facial brush (optional)
Dampen the skin.
Cut the top of the tomato off. You will need the top as this will be the scrubber pad so do not cut the top too thinly.
Put the sugar on the side plate and spread it a little with the back of the spoon.
Get your tomato top and dip it in the sugar, twist it around in the sugar to get the even coating.
Start on the forehead and gently scrub in a small circular motion. Move down to around the outer eye area (avoiding eyelids and under the eye area) and move over the face, nose, mouth, chin and neck. A facial brush may be used to go over the face as an extra benefit.
Relax for 10 minutes and eat the other part of the tomato.
Rinse off with tepid water.
Pat the skin dry and apply your moisturizer.
By incorporating this facial scrub into your weekly skin care you will not only start to feel the benefits to your skin but you will SEE the results too! A tomato and some sugar, it couldn’t be easier, so give it a try!
‘so my friends start to practice with them is very useful and all natural …
