With everything going on in the world at this time (Quarantine, Covid-19), a trip to the Spa is not possible so I’ve been relying on every DIY knowledge I can find.
One of my favorite homemade facial scrub recipes is very simple and ancient but SOOO GOOD! Made with ingredients we already have at home: oatmeal, honey, coconut oil, and Apple Cider Vinegar. These ingredients have wonderful healing qualities. Oatmeal is full of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds and is known for its skin-soothing properties including moisturizing dry skin, providing relief from itching, rashes and other minor skin irritations. Honey provides natural antibacterial and healing properties to soothe and clarify the skin. Coconut oil is very light and not greasy at all. It cleans skin pores and helps moisturize and nourish it – and it’s especially great of acne-prone skin. Apple Cider Vinegar is an effective way to cleanse the skin of bacteria and debris.
I usually put the scrub on my face, give a quick rub around to make sure it’s covering everything, leave on for 5 minutes and then give one last good scrub before I wash it off. Your face will feel so amazing after you’ll want to do this every day.
Honey Oatmeal Scrub Recipe:
- Two spoons oatmeal
- One teaspoon honey
- One teaspoon coconut or olive oil – whichever you prefer
- Few drops of Apple Cider Vinegar
Mix everything together until it’s a thick sticky mixture. Smooth onto face and rub into skin for a couple of minutes and then rinse off.
