SCRUMPTIOUS FACIAL SCRUBS
Exfoliating is one of the best ways to improve skin tone, brighten your color and prepare for flawless makeup application. These easy and delicious-smelling scrubs will help you exfoliate your way to younger, nicer looking skin.
Baking Soda Scrub
Yet another use for the household wonder. Apply baking soda to wet face and massage with circular motions for several minutes to soften your skin instantly. Also good for sensitive skin.
Brown sugar and berries
Some for your face, some for dessert. Mix one tablespoon brown sugar with two mashed strawberries (high in vitamin C and fruit alpha-hydroxy acids.) Apply to face, leave on for ten minutes and rinse.
The Classical Treatment
The ancient Greeks were onto something. Mix one teaspoon olive oil (cold pressed) and one-half teaspoon sea salt. Applied gently to a wet face, this light exfoliant will not only remove dead cells, but can also improve micro-circulation. Olive oil is highly nourishing to the skin.
