Do It Yourself Facial – Right At Home!

Winters that are cold, full of smog/pollution, and maybe a tad bit dreary = this a great way to clear out the skin. Summers can clog our skin with sunscreens, repellents and sweat = this is a great way to clear out the skin. 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.

 A bit about the ingredients

  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

Certainly use ANY brands you choose, these are just what I had on handDIY Facial 1OLIVE OIL is reported to make your skin softer and smoother  

Here is my recipe- Do It Yourself Facial


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 can use quick or regular) 


In a small bowl combine the honey, olive oil and milk. Mix together well. Blend oatmeal to a powder. DIY Facial 2

DIY Facial 3Add 2 Tbl, of ground oatmeal to the liquid mixture; combine.DIY Facial 4Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes so the oatmeal can soften in the liquid mixture.DIY Facial 5


Apply mixture to face and neck, rubbing gently in circular motions to massage; making sure to do all of the face and neck. I like to also put a bit on my lips to exfoliate them.

Rinse well with warm water; 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. And you will just feel better and ready to take on all the demands of your day! *Try a bit of the mixture on a small area of your skin first to make sure you will not have a reaction or any skin related problems.

  1. Carrie,

    I have always been a big Olive Oil fan. Thanks for sharing your secret for looking so young. I will try this maybe even this weekend.

  2. I love this recipe, Carrie! I use olive oil on my face every day to dissolve makeup, but have never used honey or oatmeal. I am definitely going to give this a try. Maybe this is your secret to looking too young to have any grandchildren! Thanks for sharing with Let’s Get Real. I am pinning this to our group Pinterest board.
