My Favourite Face Scrub Ever

Totally random, but I have to share, because I’ve just made up a new batch and it really is awesome. I always intend to use this stuff 2-3 times a week, and in reality end up using it about once a fortnight, if that – but whenever I do, my skin practically glows the next day (I’m a night showerer), so you know.

Also, bonus: it’s DEAD SIMPLE.

Wanna know what’s in my super favouritest face cleanser/scrub ever? Sure, I’ll tell you.

Sugar.

Olive oil.

That’s it. Though sometimes I throw in a spoonful of dried lavendar from the garden, because it smells pretty. And yes, I know, cleaning my face with oil sounds counterintuitive – but it works, and apparently I’m not the only one who does it.

So there you go. Favouritest scrub ever, and all you do it mix the two ingredients together until they form a goopy paste. Good for all skin, not just your face.

  1. ……..it’s not the oil that makes me stare, it’s the sugar. I can intellectually wrap my mind around it, but every instinct is going ‘SUGAR BAD FOR SKIN AND TEETH.’ Even though that’s only if you eat it.

    *battles cognitive dissonance some more*

    • Well, if it makes you feel better, you can use salt. Or ground up coconut husk, or corn cob, maybe fine sand, or anything mildly abrasive 😛 Salt and sugar tend to work best through because they dissolve a little as you scrub, so it’s pretty hard to overdo it and damage your skin.

      Also, I do not advise ingesting the stuff, so hopefully teeth should not be an issue O:) 😀 hehe.
