Exfoliation is key to clear skin. It makes your skin smooth, scrubs the dead skin off, and helps clear your pores! Today’s diy face wash is all natural and gives you all the benefits of a store bought exfoliant without the harsh chemicals. It combines baking soda (which is much less harsh on your skin than salt and sugar which are common exfoliants), coconut oil (which helps kill bacteria and decrease acne), and frankincense essential oil (which helps prevent wrinkles and regenerate healthy skin cells).

Instructions:

  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 5/10 drops frankincense oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

All you have to do is mix all of these ingredients together and store them in a container with a lid. That is it! To use it, gently rub a teaspoon or two into your skin using circular motions and then rinse off with warm water.

Exfoliation is key to healthy skin! Make this concoction part of your weekly routine to keep your skin glowing and clean.

Sugar scrubs are natural exfolaints! They can greatly improve the health of your skin by getting rid of toxins and impurities and gives you a healthy glow! Regular soap may appear to keep your skin clean, but only exfoliation removes dead skin cells and excess oil!

Here is how to make your very own lemon honey sugar scrub!lemonhoney

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp honey

Add all of these ingredients together and keep them in a jar in your bathroom so that you have easy access to it! I use my sugar scrub when I am in the shower and I have deep conditioner sitting in my hair. I have the water off and use the scrub on my face and all over my body! It rejuvenates my skin and gets all of the dead skin off. Then, I rinse it off in the shower! Easy peasy!

I am always looking for new natural beauty remedies. A lot of times, choosing to make your own beauty concoctions is a cheaper alternative to buying them, and they are a lot better for you! Here is how to make your very own refreshing exfoliating mask!

Ingredients:NH-SO10-orange-slice

–          Oranges

–          Baking Soda

That is all you need! I love beauty remedies that have very few ingredients because they are simple, which means they are easy to make and easy to find the ingredients to! So, take a tablespoon of juice from your oranges and one tablespoon of baking soda and mix the two ingredients together in a small bowl to create a paste. Spread a thin layer of the paste on your face. Leave the mixture on for about 20 minutes, and don’t worry if it starts to tingle! That means it is doing its job.  Dampen your fingertips and scrub the mask in a circular motion to exfoliate your problem areas. Rinse the mask off of your face and admire your skin! Not only will you smell like a citrus goddess, you will have super clean glowing skin.

Like I said, I love keeping things all natural and homemade. Try this mask and see what you think! You may even have these ingredients laying around your kitchen. Bonus!

XOXO, Chels
