It’s that time of year! Time to slough off winter and freshen up for spring. That’s at least what I had in mind the other day after seeing all the dry flaking skin that was accumulating on my face. Time for scrubbing up!
Realizing I had no scrub on hand I quickly put together my own concoction using a mix of sugars, olive oil and clementine juice. The results? Fantastic! After using my DIY creation my skin felt refreshed, soft and glowing. If you’re looking for a simple way to rejuvenate yours – give this easy to make scrub a try.
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 peeled clementine
- Combine your sugars and oil in a small dish and stir.
- Squeeze in 3-4 wedges of clementine juice
- Mix well and use immediately.
If you’re looking to take your scrub one step further, consider adding a teaspoon of honey to help super parched skin or 3 drops of tea tree oil if you have an oily complexion. And should you not have any white sugar in your home, compensate with brown. I don’t recommend using turbinado sugar as the mill is not as fine and can tear up your skin. If you want to make a big batch in advance to use over the course of a month, pop it into a small yogurt jar and keep it in the fridge.
So there you have it! An easy to make, all natural and super effective scrub to help your skin recover from the winter blues. Enjoy!
