The author of Simple Recipes for Easy Homemade Face Scrubs and Body Exfoliants (All Natural Cosmetics Book 3) (Vesela Tabakova) has granted me permission to share a few of her recipes.
This is one I made a couple of days ago and LOVED it!
Lemon Body Scrub:
1/2 cup sugar
4 tbsp almond oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp lemon zest
1-2 drops Lemon Essential Oil
Mix all ingredients and apply the mixture to damp skin. Gently exfoliate in small, circular motions. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
Since I have been using her scrubs, and only natural ingredients on my face, my skin looks much softer and I have a natural glow. I even have less blemishes. Each morning, I am excited to try a new one. Today I will try this one because I have a banana that needs to be used right away:
Banana Sensitive Skin Scrub:
1/2 banana, mashed
1 tbsp oatmeal
Mash half banana with a fork and mix it with the oatmeal. Gently massage onto skin for a minute, then rinse off.
And the one I intend to make for tomorrow morning’s shower:
Simple Coconut Body Scrub:
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Mix half a cup of coconut oil with one cup of brown sugar. Add a tsp of vanilla extract. Apply the mixture to damp skin. Gently exfoliate in small, circular motions. Rinse with warm water.
