  • Banana Scrub
    A very finely textured, delicious-smelling scrub. Can double as a mask.

    2 tsp mashed banana
    2 tsp rolled oats
    1 tsp milk
    1 tsp honey

    Honey Sugar Scrub
    If you have ever used a body sugar scrub, you know how amazing they are. Work the same magic on your face!

    1 tsp. of honey
    1/2 tsp. of sugar (either cane or brown — both work well)

    Blend in bowl. Apply.
    Rinse very thoroughly, as this recipe can be slightly sticky

  • Olive Oil and Sea Salt

    Grab a medium bowl and pour 1 tsp of olive oil into it, then mix it with ½ tsp sea salt. Wet your face and apply the mixture on your skin. Start massaging it a bit using circular motions. Finally, leave on the facial for at least 3 minutes, then wash it off with lukewarm water.

  • it depends on your skin type, so here are some options and you can choose which applies to your skin.

    Basic Baking Soda Scrub
    Perfect for everyday use.

    2 to 3 Tbsp. Baking soda
    Small amount of water

    Mix the ingredients into a paste.
    Using a circular motion, apply to face and gently scrub.

    Basic Cornmeal Scrub
    Slightly more potent than the baking soda scrub, this works best on a 2 to 3 day interval.

    2 to 3 Tbsp. Cornmeal
    Small amount of water

    Mix and apply in the same manner as baking soda scrub.

    Rose Almond Face Scrub
    To brighten and soften skin.

    1 tsp rosewater
    1/2 tsp almond flour or finely ground almonds.

    Mix into paste and apply.
