Pampering yourself doesn’t mean you have to spend your hard earned cash at pricey spas or on expensive products. Although I do enjoy the luxury of purchasing these things, its not quite a necessity. I must admit, I am super guilty of being a major product junkie. I’m sure some of you reading this can relate as well. There is something that seems to always bring me back to creating my personal scrubs the good ole fashion way. You can create your very own DIY beauty recipes right in he comfort of your own home with products you may probably already own in your kitchen. One recipe I personally enjoy creating, is a “Citrus Facial Scrub” (yummm). Below, I have listed a few ingredients you will need to create this natural citrus facial scrub.
Yogurt – Soothes and can lessen the visibility of blemishes and moles, make freckles disappear, and lighten suntanned skin.
Oatmeal – Acts as a exfoliant, will lock in moisture, and acts as a natural remedy to acne.
Honey – Is great for acne treatment & prevention. Moisturizes and soothes. full of antioxidants which will slow down aging.
Lemon or Citrus Juice – Helps brighten, soften and refresh rough or dried skin. The citrus fruits will also lighten the skin color and reduce freckles, discoloration and scars.
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (or other citrus juice)
- 2 Teaspoons Honey
- 6 ounces plain yogurt
- 1/4 cup ground oatmeal
Blend all the ingredients together and apply it to clean skin in circular motions. Allow for the mixture to to dry. Leave mask on for 10-15 minutes and rinse it off with warm water. This all natural facial mask is suitable for sensitive, normal, and dry skin types. This regimen can be used once a week as needed.
