Make My Monday

Monday, June 24, 2013

Every Monday we are going to bring you a Beauty product which can be made at home whether its a Face Mask or a Body Scrub, we will try and use a minimal amount of ingredients and ingredients that you can use on a every day basis.

I thought for the 1st week I would keep it really simple and use ingredients that everyone will have to hand in their home. 

Today I am going to show you a really simple scrub using 2 ingredients all you need is your everyday facial cleansing cream or any that you need using up, and a few spoons of sugar.

1. Wash your face thoroughly using warm water and a soft clean cloth and sure hands are nice a clean too.

2. Put about 1 tsp of cleanser into the palm of your hand making sure its a cream formula one. Any brand can be used. 

3. Add 2 tsps of Sugar (preferably caster or fine grain) into the cleanser and mix with your fingers to make a gritty paste. 

4. Rub lightly into the face in a circular motion been careful around the delicate eye area. Make sure you get into the side of the nose and any dry patches you my have. 

5. Wet a wash cloth with warm water and gently wipe face to remove the scrub rinsing cloth under water when needed until all face scrub is removed.

6. Once all mask is removed and face is clean splash face with cold water. This will close the pores and freshen your skin. Pat dry with a soft towel.

This can be made on a larger scale in a bowl and just be popped into a airtight container ready to be used the next time.

Hope you enjoyed this and look out for more homemade beauty products each and every Monday where we will be looking at the best products for dry, oily and Acne prone skin.
