There’s no better way to share secrets and tell stories of lovers past then by waiting for your facial to do its magic. Try these three simple to make scrubs and exfoliant (made with simple products which you may already have) at your next Girls Night In.
Strawberry & Oatmeal Face Scrub
1 cup quartered Strawberries
1/2 Lemon, freshly squeezed
1/2 cup uncooked Oats
1/4 cup Ground Almonds (or almond butter)
3 tbsp Raw Honey
Puree strawberries and lemon in a food processor. Transfer to a bowl and stir in oats, almonds and honey. Apply to face and gently scrub away.
Oatmeal, Honey & Yogurt Exfoliator
1 tablespoon of Oats
1 teaspoon of Honey
2 tablespoons of Yogurt
Stir ingredients in a bowl, apply generously while avoiding the eyes. While this may sound more like breakfast the oats will sooth your skin, the honey will moisturize while the yogurt and its lactic acid will brighten your complexion.
Brown Sugar Scrub
1 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp Vitamin E
1 tsp Essential Oil (Frankincense oil is great as it tones and lifts the skin)
Combine all the liquid ingredients first then, mix in the sugar. Apply in circular motions and rinse after a few minutes. You may replace the Frankincense with Tea Tree Oil or something more fragrant like Rosemary.
We want to hear from you. Which scrub did you enjoy most. Better yet, let our handsome men rub these fragrant and skin lifting concoctions as you relax with a little wine and the company of your closest friends.
