Organic Face Scrub: Make it yourself

 

The rain has made my walking trips a bit difficult this rainy season, so I am turning to indoor activities for the moment.  Having a flu is also a big inhibitor of going places.   Anyways, thanks to a dear sister, I had the opportunity to attend an event that was really quite informative and fun at the same time.  It was a spa’s anniversary and amongst the many activities they had for customers, one of them taught us how to make our own facial scrub and so I thought I’d share the recipe with you.

It’s organic, there are no chemicals and its good for your skin.  It left mine feeling all soft and lovely.   it smells good too.  I love things which smell good.

It’s really quite simple and something to try if you are home and want to just try something new.

The ingredients include: black sesame, plain yogurt, and honey.  Yes, it’s really as simple as that.

First, roast the black sesame a bit and then grind it up so that the grains are not too big.  The coarser the grains, the harsher it would be on your skin, so I recommend to make it fine for your delicate skin.

Mix:
3 tablespoons of black sesame
1 tablespoon of yogurt
1 tablespoon of honey

Stir well until all ingredients are blended.

Voila! you have your facial scrub.

Simple isn’t it?  Who said facial scrubs had to be expensive?  These are your everyday supermarket items..AND best of all, it’s organic.

Since yogurt shouldn’t be kept very long, I don’t recommend keeping the mix longer for a week.  Oh, store it in a refrigerator.  Room temperature might result in a somewhat sour facial mask.

Enjoy.  By the way, men can use this too.  Who said only girls can do face scrubs?
