Hey there radiant skin seeker! 🙋🏼♀️
You are in the right place today if you're looking for a simple, natural face scrub that you can make from home!
This follows on from my last homemade skin care recipe - my Brightening Face Mask for Pigmentation, Acne and Anti-ageing.
The best part (besides it being amazingly effective!) is how quick, simple and affordable these skin care products are to make and you can make them in the comfort of your own home.
In the previous recipe, I talk about some of the ingredients and why they are so powerful for applying to your skin. Check out the other one here to find out more about how chickpea flour and almond meal can give you radiant skin.
I love sharing info. so that people get inspired by natural living! It's what drives me to get up in the morning the most. If you're anything like me, you love to learn and if that's the case I'll be giving you all the amazing benefits of the other 4 ingredients...
Almond meal is yummy in homemade brownies but it's also delicious for your skin! This is because it's so gentle (zero harshnesses here). This makes it a nice mild exfoliating scrub ingredient. It leaves your skin incredibly soft, supple and gorgeously glowing. Using almond meal in your face scrub can help prevent clogged pores too!
Almond Oil (sweet)
Almond oil contains vitamin E and this vitamin is a powerful antioxidant for helping protect the skin and keeping cells healthy. This precious oil also contains vitamin A and vitamin A can help reduce acne.
This beautifully-scented water has a greater purpose than just smelling nice! Rosewater can help maintain your skin's pH but not only that, but it can also help with rosacea, redness, acne, dermatitis, eczema and inflamed skin.
By applying rosewater regularly to your skin, you can really help calm the redness down and your skin will be much happier for it and so will you! :)
This fine clinoptilolite powder (a type of Zeolite) is naturally-occurring crystalline compounds that have the ability to capture heavy metals, chemicals, bacteria and viruses. Zeolite can be taken internally to improve health but it can also be applied to the skin as it has incredible detoxifying powers when used on one's face or body. It helps to remove daily grime and pollution from your face.
