Back to Basics-Natural ‘Beauty’ Facial Scrubs & Spa’s-At-Home


Sometimes best isn’t always  the best and  the same being said  to skin care.I’ve done it,spend 5 bucks or up on product that doesn’t do much or makes my skin worse.Anyone have that happen?  It does seem though when do the Spa  facials that for some reason (and maybe just be me), your skin looks/feel amazing.I only did Spa thing once before having a child and was wonderful gift that got. I’m not saying anything bad about face products out their because there are some really good ones,i just love exploring great facials that you can make at home. What awesome way to get Spa-at-home that gets  same as the look/feel like a spa or product,but saves $$$?!

But they also have to simple/easy and great ones.I think founds ones that are really good and had to share.

~~~~~~~~Now onto some wonderful scrubs~~~~~~~~~

White Sugar Scrub-Great all skin types even ashy skin

Sugar is a preferred exfoliate to salt because it tends not to tear at the skin. When dead skin collects on the surface of skin, it’s important to slough it away. This helps clear up clogged pores. When skin isn’t exfoliated, it can appear ashy.

     

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp sugar
  •   3 tbsp warm water

Preparation:

Stir sugar into warm water so that it melts.
Make sure granules are dissolved, otherwise they could tear your skin.
Apply to the face.
Gently massage around the skin.
Rinse with warm water OR might want to take a warm washcloth that’s steamed in the microwave. Make sure the washcloth is not too hot.

 Here is the sugar scrub that made following all ingredients above and just love.Now it seem looking that their is a lot in this container,but really isn’t. I placed what I’ll be using in this container and i would not recommend storing but make as much for when needed

 ***Also to make sure you check ‘how-to’ store if making more some scrubs because ingredients like yogurt,whey call for refrigerate others w/ oil can’t have water get into as it will cause Bactria.***

After using these i was pleased how smooth my skin was. I was having some dry skin and think could be weather or what not.I normally have oily type,but after using this so simple/easy scrub in love

Here another helpful tip that used  the sugar/oil scrub works well on hands and cuticles. If dry cuticles you

Salt & Sugar Body Scrub

 This super easy  recipe takes 10 minutes and super smooth body

 

Here’s How:

 

  1. For this body scrub, you can use salt or sugar. Sugar can be gentler on the skin. Just make sure to choose a sugar or salt that has small granules that won’t tear at skin. A basic table salt or sugar works wonderfully. If you have super sensitive skin, you might opt for a dark brown sugar.
  2. Choose an oil. You can use baby oil or any of the following: organic extra virgin coconut oil (my absolute favorite, which you can buy at a health food store), almond oil, safflower, vegetable.
  3. You want 1 part oil to 2 parts sugar or salt. Place anywhere from a few tablespoons to a cup of salt or sugar in a container. Place half that amount of oil. Mix with a spoon. Don’t freak out if the salt settles to the bottom. It’s virtually impossible to keep it mixed.
  4. If you want your scrub to smell divine, put 5 drops of an essential oil into your mixture. Mix with spoon. See a list of essential oils.
  5. Now onto the bath itself. I find scrubs work best on dry skin. Step into a bath tub and put on loofah mitts. I like the exfoliating gloves that you get in health food stores. They really scrub your skin good. If you don’t have a bath mitt, don’t worry, you can use your hands.
  6. Take a spoonful of the mixture into your palms or your gloves and then rub the mixture all over your body in a circular motion. For tougher areas such as the knees, soles and elbows, spend extra scrubbing time or cut a lemon in half and pour sea salt on the halves, scrubbing your soles, elbows and knees with the lemon. On places like the chest, neck, and stomach, where the skin is thinner, take it easy with the scrubbing and instead use cleanser on a washcloth to exfoliate. If you feel the salt is too harsh on your skin, rinse off the bath mitts and then spoon only the oil onto the mitts to continue.
  7. Once entire body is scrubbed well, rinse thoroughly.
  8. Pat skin dry. You should be good and cleansed. The salt (or sugar) should have exfoliated your skin nicely with the help of the loofah and the oil should leave skin soft and moisturized. You shouldn’t even need to follow the bath with a moisturizer.
  9. The only bad part about this scrub is the oil can build up on the bathtub bottom. Make sure to clean it up so the next person who gets in doesn’t slip.

 

 

 

What You Need

  • salt or sugar
  • oil (organic extra virgin coconut oil, but you can use any type of oil)
  • a bowl
  • essential oils if you choose
  • a spoon
  • loofah mitt (or you can use your hands)

Hope you  enjoy trying out  these wonderful scrubs that save you time & money. All ingredients in these recipes can or could be found in what you have in pantry already. And what i love about these is that easy/simple to make and don’t have chemicals but are all natural.If your not one for chemicals or question what effects can be with using them then trying homemade scrubs. You can make these as gifts or host spa-at-home party and use/try these recipes with friends and family.
