Hi! Hope you are having a good week. Today I’m sharing my Renewing Face Oil Scrub recipe. As I continue “Operation fix my skin” I’ve been focusing on simple things to add to my skin care routine that makes a big difference. Last week I shared with you how I make rose water to tone my skin. If you missed out on that you can check the post out here. Rose water is great to use before or after this renewing face scrub.
As with any DIY if you think you may be allergic do a patch test first. Discontinue use if your skin becomes irritated.
Here’s what you will need.
1 tbsp Coffee Grounds (fresh or previously used)
3 tsp Jojoba Oil (or Rosehip Oil)
1 1/2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 1/2 tbsp White Sugar
2 tbsp Honey
1 tsp Aloe Vera Gel
Container with Lid
Add all ingredients to the bowl and mix well. (Pretty simple!) Once everything is mixed well transfer the scrub into the container with the lid.
Feel free to get creative and add more or less of your favorite ingredients. More coffee grounds make for a stronger scrub. Additional honey and oil make a more hydrating scrub.
If you want to brighten your skin from post acne add a pinch of turmeric powder. (This can cause staining so be cautious).
This scrub is great for all skin types especially acne suffers. If you have active acne breakouts I wouldn’t use any scrubs on your skin until they have cleared. You don’t want to irritate your skin or spread bacteria.
Renewing Face Oil Scrub Use
- Wet your face then (with wet hands) warm up a little scrub in the palm of your hand with your fingertips.
- Apply scrub to wet skin and gently massage your face, neck, and decollete in upward motions.
- Rinse skin with lukewarm water then
patthe skin dry with a damp towel.
- Follow up with a moisturizer for extra hydration.
This scrub can be used in the morning and at night. Be sure to use sunscreen (clean, reef safe ingredients are best) to keep your skin well protected.
After using this scrub my skin feels so refreshed and smooth. This is not a gentle scrub so no need to roughly massage your skin. Light to medium pressure works best for this.
I keep this scrub in my bathroom because I tend to make it in small batches but you can keep it in the fridge for a longer shelf-life.
Use this scrub a few times a week to keep your skin refreshed. Let me know how you like it!
Thanks for hanging out today!
