So, why would you want to spend full price for facial scrubs from stores and salons, when you could be making them your self? It is both easy and affordable to make your own, and now I’m going to give you some basic tips. Essentially, a facial scrub is comprised of a base, a texture and a fragrance. An example of a base would be mayonnaise, or peanut butter, or even banana or pumpkin puree. The texture is the ingredient that actually does the scrubbing, such as granola. The fragrance is in the oil that you choose to add, such as essence of jasmine.

There you have it, and now you know about making your very own homemade face scrubs. It’s all about experimentation, so don’t be afraid to try different and unique combinations. There’s no right or wrong, the goal here is to take some time to yourself at the end of a busy day and relax a little bit, you earned it! And if you can save some money in the process, and ensure you’re using the best quality ingredients on your skin, it is truly a no-brainer!
