NATURAL BEAUTY ROUTINE ON A BUDGET-BY KETHRIN BE
MY holy grail for Clear and Glowy skin?
Creams? Nope. Masks? Nope.. Toners?! Nooooope.
Face scrubs people.
The underestimated and under-used good old face scrubs.
Exfoliating your skin will not only remove dead skin cells and other remaining impurities but it will also help you keep your skin complexion clear and healthy. Exfoliating will help any cream, serum, mask sink into your skin, making it easier for your skin to fully absorb and benefit from it. So, the good thing about scrubs is that you can make your own at home…. And I will list 3 different ones I have been using since I was a teenager, all adapting to my skin “evolution”!
SO, DRY SKIN FRIENDS
• 1 tsp organic Himalayan pink salt
• 1 tsp water
• 1 tbsp olive oil
• 1\2 tsp coconut oil (optional)
How to apply:
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Using your fingertips, gently rub the scrub following a circular motion.
Keep doing that for 2-3 minutes….. maybe a couple more :)
Rinse with warm water, and pat dry with a clean towel.
This scrub will help eliminate dead skin cells and flakiness while moisturising and soothing dry dehydrated skin.
If you’re not applying a face mask (one of the amazing ones I'll be sharing soon) using a cotton pad, apply some rose water to tone and a layer of coconut oil to moisturize
OILY SKIN PEEPS, YOUR TURN
• 1 tsp coconut oil (moisturizes and smoothes out scars)
• 1 tsp honey ( with its antiseptic and antibacterial proprieties, help to prevent breakouts)
• 1 tbsp brown sugar ( does miracles when it comes to smoothing facial bumps and lumps)
• 1 tsp lemon ( rich in vitamin A and C, exfoliates, controls oil production, brightens and tightens skin)
How you do it:
Combine all ingredients into a small bowl.
Rub the face scrub into your face and neck, using gentle circular motions, for about a minute or two.
Rinse dry with warm water.
Again, if you’re not applying a face mask, using a cotton pad, apply some rose water to tone and a layer of coconut oil to moisturise.. optionally add 10 drops of which hazel.the best natural astringent can help you control acne reducing inflammation, and decreasing oil and redness. It reduces bacteria growth while speeding up the healing of scars and scabs.
• 1 tbsp coconut oil (moisturizes and smoothes out scars)
• 1 tbsp honey ( with its antiseptic and antibacterial proprieties, help to prevent breakouts)
• 1 tsp nutmeg (it's a natural astringent, helps with acne prone dry skin, extremely moisturising and exfoliation.
• 1 tsp coffee or sugar (Antioxidants in coffee fight premature ageing while leaving skin silky smooth)
How to do it :
Combine all ingredients into a small ball mix until blended.
Apply on wet clean skin, massage in circular motions for 2 minutes, rinse with warm water and pat dry.
If you’re not applying a face mask, using a cotton pad, apply some rose water to tone and a layer of coconut oil to moisturise.optionally add 3drops of lavender essential oil (great for treating mild skin irritations and light acne scarring).
Here they are.
And guess what? They’re all good to be used as body scrubs too!
