Make Your Own: Face Scrub

Gentle Facial Exfoliating Scrub

This is a very inexpensive scrub made from basic kitchen ingredients and a touch of lavender.

Yields: 16 ounces of scrub
Application: Use three times a week
Storage: Plastic or glass container; Store in a dark, cool place for best results
Shelf life: 6 months

What You Will Need:

1 cup ground oatmeal
1/2 cup dry lavender flowers, stripped of stalks (optional)
1/2 cup powdered soy milk
2 teaspoons cornmeal
Filtered water

How to Make It:

Mix all of the "dry" ingredients in a bowl and transfer to a container with a lid.

How to Use It:

When you are ready to use, combine 1 tablespoon of your scrub with enough filtered water to form a thick paste. Gently massage in circular motions over your face and neck. Rinse with warm water and pat your skin dry.

Look at that. You found your own little scrub of youth.
