homemade scrubs

A good scrub not only exfoliates your face and your body, but it also makes you feel good and renewed by removing the dead cells from the surface of your skin. The result is a beautiful, silky smooth skin with a natural glow that lasts the entire day. However, scrubs you can find in shops are often very expensive, so why spend money on such products when you can make your very own, in the privacy of your home and with ingredients you can easily find in the kitchen? Here are several ideas of efficient, natural and cost-effective homemade scrubs:

1. Moisturizing Cream And Sugar

A facial scrub made of moisturizing cream and sugar is certainly one of the fastest and easiest ways to thoroughly clean your face: simply combine two teaspoons of moisturizing cream with half a teaspoon of sugar, mix it until it turns into a gritty paste and then rub it all over your face, using a circular motion. Avoid the eye area, as you certainly do not want sugar getting into your eyes!

2. Intensely Moisturizing Banana Body Scrub

This is one of the most popular body scrub recipes at the moment, not just because it is very easy to prepare but also because it is highly efficient. Basically, you will need one ripe banana, three tablespoons of sugar and half a teaspoon of essential oil. The latter is not important, it is mainly added for its pleasant smell. Simply smash all the ingredients together and then apply it on your body while you are in the shower. Massage gently and then rinse off with warm water. You will feel as good as new!
