Winter always brings the worst on my skin. It gets dried, dull and looks tired; I know to get into face scrub regiment might help solve my skin problem, but I'm not a big fan of abrasive face scrubbing due to my sensitive skin. I tried lots of drugstore products and some I even bought from high-end skin care products, but most of these products just leave my face with redness and irritate skin. I found it hard to find the brand that good enough and works effectively on my skin. The product that I'm looking for must use the best of the best ingredient, the organic and natural product. And these are the only things that work gentle and efficiently on my skin. But, such a product doesn't come with the low price, the cost is expensive.
So now, I dedicate myself to learn more about natural essential oil and the benefits to our skin. And also by making my skincare products, I can use the best ingredients with affordable price and a lot safer because I don't have to worry about all the unknown chemical ingredients and additives that they used in most beauty product in the store.
Although I haven't learned everything yet, for a stater, I can make my face Sugar Scrub that works wonderfully on my sensitive skin with the fraction of the price of the high-end skincare products.
In the meantime, I still used some of the stores bought skin care products but if I can make it myself, why not DIY?
1/2 Organic granulated brown sugar
1. Melt the Shea butter or Mango Butter in the Microwave for ten seconds, but if you want to make this continuously I suggest to buy Body butter warmer melting pot , is excellent equipment to melt most of the body butter.
2. Inside the bowl, mix all the ingredients and stir it until thoroughly coat, put in the airtight glass jar and store at the room temperature. Use within 6 months.
How to use it, first rinse your face with warm water to soften your skin, to make it easy for the scrub take away the dead skin layer, massage the mixture to your face using small circular motions. Leave on the skin for 5 minutes. And, rinse thoroughly. For better use, do it twice a week.
NOTE: I know it seems like more pricey to buy all the ingredients but this will make more than 1 batch. So all and all you got an affordable price for the excellent product.
