Have you seen 14 karat gold face scrubs popping all over Instagram or Pinterest lately?
Well, they seem to be popular and EXPENSIVE.
Who has the money to spend on an $80 face scrub? Not many people do.
If you want to learn how to customize your own face scrubs that will work just as efficiently as the expensive kinds do, then keep reading below for our beauty tips.
1. Face Scrubs Using Apple Cider Vinegar and Aztec Bentonite
Have you heard of the magical face mask that is a combination of apple cider vinegar and bentonite clay?
The clay, which costs less than $10, has powerful healing abilities when applied to the skin.
The clay has many minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium which have been linked to clarifying the skin. Bentonite clay helps control excess oils that can often clog up your pores. The clay can help fight acne marks, too.
When added to a liquid such as an apple cider vinegar this clay turns into the best natural detoxifying mask you can buy.
Simply mix the two ingredients and apply it to your face using your fingers at night. This clay is a safe non-toxic option for you to create as a DIY face scrub.
Use it at night because it often leaves your skin feeling red afterward, which has to do with pulling out the toxins.
2. Sea Salt and Your Favorite Essential Oil Scrub
Mixing together sea salt and an essential oil of your choice is also another DIY face scrub pick.
Sea salt has many health benefits to it. It stimulates cell rejuvenation and is extremely cheap to buy.
It is important to exfoliate the dead skin off your face a few times a week.
For these DIY face scrubs, add in some essential oils such as lavender for a sweet smelling scrub to last for months when you store it in a glass jar.
3. Coffee Face Scrub
When creating your own DIY face scrubs with coffee, the recipe needs to include:
- 3 tablespoons of coffee grounds
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil (or your favorite oil)
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
Once you’ve gathered these ingredients, mix the dry ones first and then add in your oil of choice.
Spoon the scrub into your hands and gently begin exfoliating with the scrub onto your skin.
Rinse with warm water once you have finished using the scrub, and pat dry with a washcloth.
4. Baking Soda Scrub
You can find this next scrub DIY from the grocery store for under $1.00.
Combine baking soda with a little bit of water to create an instant face scrub using an ingredient that happens to be found in most of the face scrubs on the market today.
Make sure the baking soda that you use is free of harsh chemicals.
5. Oatmeal Face Scrub
One final option for you to create as one of your own DIY face scrubs contains oatmeal.
Oatmeal is a lot more common as an ingredient for people with sensitive skin because it is gentler.
Grind up your oatmeal in a blender and add in some honey to create this cheap exfoliating scrub.
Make your own face scrubs to save yourself a ton of money-it’s so easy to do!
