I prefer using sugar or almond scrubs on my face rather than salt scrubs. Salt scrubs tend to be more drying and harsher on my skin. But remember, whatever you choose to make your scrub, make sure it’s mild and doesn’t irritate your skin.

I use my Homemade Facial Scrub on a regular basis. It is my favorite. You can find the recipe here. However, I’ve been trying a new scrub and I think I’m starting to love it just the same.

1 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 cup sweet almond oil
1 tsp. vitamin E
1 tsp. vanilla extract

I love using organic brown sugar in my scrubs, and adding vanilla gives this scrub a sweet scent. Almond oil is an excellent moisturizer and it has a high content in fatty acids, which mimics our skin’s sebum. Finally, vitamin E is an antioxidant. It nourishes the skin and helps heal wounds.

Apply the scrub to a clean face using circular motion. Be gentle and avoid the eye area. Rinse well with warm water and pat dry. Remember, do not use a scrub if you have acne, any irritation, or a sunburn.

Give this scrub a try to and let me know if you love it as much as I do. Enjoy!
