Easy Facial Scrub

My daughter is obsessed with making her own facial scrubs and masks.  She has dealt with skin problems and is looking for better alternatives to store bought skin care products.

One of the things she makes, and this is wonderful, is a scrub that leaves your skin moisturized and soft.  The scrub isn’t too harsh and can be used anywhere on your body.

I have to admit it gets a bit expensive when she uses my GRAPE SEED oil, and ALL OF MY COOKING oils.  Every now and then she clogs the shower drain with oatmeal.  That one stopped.  I was like “Really VAL?!!  The tub does not have a garbage disposal!”  But other than that it makes her happy, and really who could ask for more than a happy teen??

Here’s her scrub.

Take about 1/3 of a cup of brown sugar

add some honey

add some vitamin E

add some grape seed oil

Mix it all up and wash over your face or body.  Remember..you MAY want to do this over your kitchen sink.

You will have soft freshly polished skin.  She used this right after having a light treatment and it didn’t hurt her at all.  This is nice considering the light treatment leaves you feeling burned, and looking burned for about a week.  It was the alternative to Accutane, which we are not ok with at all.

Here’s to happy kids, and clear faces.  It smells good too.  Probably make a good marinade of some kind..BEFORE you put it all over your face.Image

See this face?  This is why I don’t lock her in the closet when the drain get’s clogged..I love her so much!  I’m still hiding the oatmeal.
