Over my years as a model I amassed a rather large collection of two things.
Cosmetics and bobby pins.
At one point I was giving away $50 bottles of a supposedly exotic hair oil (it turned my hair yellow). Being someone who is naturally inclined I have been making my own beauty products for a number of years – vis-a-vis Flora perfumes. The bobby pins however, still linger with me and are usually found hiding in draws or handbags resisting their final resting place – the rubbish bin.
Below is a recipe for the most simple face scrub you could have. And one of the most inexpensive. Only 3 ingredients. It is oil based so if you’re like me and have skin that can get dryer than the Sahara desert – then this one’s for you.
You’ll need just one small container.
Mix in about 1/2 cup of brown sugar with 1/4 of oil of your choice – you can use slightly less oil if you want. Any oil is good – head straight to the kitchen and grab some olive oil if you want but I use Jojoba. Then just mix in about 2 teaspoons of bi-carb soda which does WONDERS for your skin. I swear.
Use it on your face/body in the shower and you’ll be left with a fresh moisturized body minus the dead skin cells. Every-body wins! ; )
* you can add a very small amount of aromatherapy oils or flower essences if you wish
