Dry skins, sensitive skins Or oily skin : every skin type its type of care, and this goes just as well for facial scrubs. And for a guaranteed tailor-made treatment at a lower cost and with a natural composition, we rely on facial scrubs that we do ourselves, in our kitchen.
A gentle face scrub for my sensitive skin
Mix a tablespoon of very fine powdered sugar - which will exfoliate very slightly - with a tablespoon of vegetable oil that you choose according to your tastes: olive, argan, hazelnut and a hint of aloe vera. Apply the preparation to your face by massaging gently with your fingers in small circular movements. Then rinse with lukewarm water.
I have dry skin, I put on a moisturizing scrub
Unlike oily skin which does not necessarily need a hydration additional, dry skin should seek treatment that is both moisturizing and soothing. We can consider honey as our favorite ingredient, thanks to its soothing and nourishing properties for our skin.
For a regenerating scrub, mix a tablespoon of vegetable oil (olive, sweet almond, argan, hazelnut), a tablespoon of powdered sugar and a tablespoon of Honey (of Manuka preferably). Apply to slightly moistened skin for a result that guarantees skin gently cleansed of its impurities.
A purifying scrub for my oily skin
To cleanse oily-prone skin acne, we rely on three ingredients: oatmeal to absorb excess sebum and gently exfoliate, honey to avoid irritation and kill germs, yogurt to gently nourish.
In a bowl, combine a teaspoon of honey, a teaspoon of yogurt and a tablespoon of oatmeal. Mix well and apply with your fingertips, from the inside to the outside of the face, before rinsing with lukewarm water.
Eliminate blackheads with a lemon scrub
In the list of very effective foods for fight against blackheads, I call lemon: its anti-bacterial and astringent properties help to tighten pores of the skin to limit the appearance of blackheads. Squeeze a lemon, and mix a sachet of baking powder with the juice obtained. Apply the preparation to the areas to be treated and leave on for a few minutes. Be careful, however, not to perform this scrub more than once a week so as not to irritate the skin.
Note: do not use lemon on the skin before exposing yourself to the sun since lemon is photosensitizing.
An exfoliating mask as a make-up remover
To remove all makeup residue from my complexion, I turn to the ingredients I already have in my closet, which I incorporate into a make-up remover. Fine sugar, almond powder or grated coconut: the gentle alternative to make in two minutes to remove make-up while erasing imperfections. Careful avoidance, however, of getting the mixture on the eyes.
