How To: Easy Body Scrub

20130809-102119.jpg

I don’t like a lot of fancy extras in my body scrubs. I like them to be gentle, yet, exfoliate what needs to be scrubbed. I like them to be a little moisturizing too, so they leave my skin silly smooth. This body scrub doesn’t take more then dumping the salt (I just use iodized table salt) in the jar you will be using, and adding oil (I use olive oil). I fill the jar 3/4 of the way with salt, and oil for the last 1/4. You will need to stir this up before each use. For best scrubbing results I like to massage the scrub onto dry skin then rinse off.

How To: Moisturizing Face Wash

Homemade Natural Face Wash

A few posts back I shared my recipes for a natural diaper change, but today I want to share the steps to making your own moisturizing face wash. This recipe is super simple and probably the best and cheapest formula I have used lately. It does a great job removing makeup including eye makeup. It is also fairly moisturizing too. For someone like me it is the perfect amount of moisture while not making my oily skin any greasier.

Directions and Ingredients

3 teaspoons Dr. Bonner’s Castile Soap (Baby Formula)

3 Tablespoons Filtered Water

3 Tablespoons Glycerin

1/2 Cup Olive Oil

Pour all the ingredients into a blender, and blend for 2-3 minutes to thicken it. Pour into a bottle, preferably with a pump. You only need a small amount each time. Massage onto your face for a minute. Wash off with a warm wash cloth.
