Home made facial scrub
An exfoliating facial scrub is a bathroom essential. Exfoliation helps get rid of the dead skin cells and exposes the new fresh skin underneath. When you find your moisturiser and your foundation seems to sit on the skin surface, giving it a dull grey appearance, you know it’s time for an exfoliation. Another great way to check is to use some sticky tape, stick this on to a section of your skin and when it comes off with a very visible thick white film of skin cells, you know it’s time to for a good scrub. A thorough gentle scrub will leave your skin shining, polished and bright. The dead cells will be removed and the gentle massage will also help with circulation which is immensely beneficial for the skin.
So why not try and make your facial scrub or facial exfoliate at home, this time! There are so many thrifty beauty secrets and home recipes, that can save you money and give you just as good results. You can make it fresh whenever you want and have funÿ customising it with your favourite fragrances. You can also buy a nice jar and gift it to a friend, as a homemade beauty gift. There is so much more fun to be had.
The ingredients you will need are:-
Brown sugar, white sugar, honey, sweet almond oil and essential aromatherapy oil of your choice. We have recommended different essential oils for different skin types so choose and customise your facial scrub accordingly.
The first step is to take 1/2 cup of brown sugar
Add 1 table spoon ofÿ honey, this has excellent anti bacterial properties and is very beneficial for spots and blemishes on the skin.
Slowly add sweet almond oil to this mixture,ÿuntil it starts to look like a thick paste. Mix this in together nicely with a wooden spoon. You can adjust the density of your scrub to how you like it, if you want it more liquid than just add more oil to it.
Now for the best part, add a few drops ofÿ any aromatherapy oil of your choice, until it smells just right. There are certain essential oils that care good for certain skin types.
Forÿ normal skin types useÿ Atlas Cedarwood, Geranium, Jasmine, Lavender, Neroli,ÿ Roman Chamomile, or Rose.
For dry skin useÿ Lavender, Bergamot, Atlas Cedarwood, Roman Chamomile, Juniper, Myrrh, Palma Rosa, Patchouli, Sandalwood, or Ylangylang.
For acne skin, we recommend Tea tree, Petitgrain, Grapefruit, Sandalwood,ÿ Basil, or Roman Chamomile
For cleansing skin we suggest Sweet Basil, Juniper, Lemon,ÿ and Niaouli.
For hydrating skin use Sweet Orange, Mandarin and Rose
Use this scrub twice a week, gently rub dry and dull skin with a small palm full of scrub. Avoid rubbing too hard as this could cause irritation. Natural scrubs may not keep for very long, so make small fresh amounts as and when you need.
You can even put thisÿ in a decorative jar and give it as a gift, or enjoy it yourself.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
