A GREAT solution for any time of the year is a facial scrub with ingredients readily available, and this is so easy and quick to put together.
Try this once a week or so before bed. That way, after rinsing it off, it can continue to replenish the moisture that vanishes due to stress, the environment, make up – life.
Here’s some information about the ingredients in this facial:
Did you know that OATMEAL is amazing for many reasons?
- It has properties to cleanse
- It is a natural exfoliate to slough off the dead skin cells.
- It cleans out pores which invigorates your skin to make it look bright and fresh.
- It also reduces inflammation which is a primary cause for premature aging skin.
HONEY is excellent for your skin because:
- It helps with acne to treat it and prevent it because it is a natural antibacterial.
- It opens pores for deep cleaning of toxins
- It slows down aging of the skin because it is full of antioxidants

OLIVE OIL is reported to make your skin softer and smoother
Now, here is my recipe for this amazing DIY Homemade Facial that you can try
1 Tbl. Honey
1 Tbl. Olive oil
1 Tbl. Milk (use water if you have allergies to milk or dairy products)
2 Tbl. Oatmeal, ground – you can use quick or regular oats, it doesn’t seem to matter the type here
In a small bowl combine the honey, olive oil and milk.
Mix together well.
Pulverize oatmeal to a powder in a blender.
Add 2 Tbl, of the ground oatmeal to the liquid mixture and combine.Allow the mixture to sit for 5-10 minutes so the oatmeal can soften in the liquid combination.
Apply mixture generously to the face and neck.
Rub gently in circular motions to massage; making sure to do all of your face and neck. I like to also put a bit on my lips to exfoliate them.
Now rinse your skin really well with warm water. The water needs to be warm enough to dissolve the oil and honey, but not so warm it burns your skin.
This is a terrific way to moisturize and soften your skin on a budget.
After using this, I hope you will feel better and ready to take on all the demands of your day!
