DIY Beauty: Homemade Scrubs from Toner
Last week we gave you an easy DIY for a homemade toner. Hopefully you've been loving the toner and the glowing skin you're getting from it! The recipe makes enough for a small bottle with a little leftover, so if you're looking for an easy way to use up what's left, why not try a scrub?
This scrub is wonderful for your face, but I also suggest using it on your hands for dry winter-chapped skin. It's a nourishing and softening scrub but the added ingredients from your toner also means it will help treat oily and blemish prone skin. Feel free to use this as a mask too: just leave it on for about 10 minutes after lightly rubbing in and then rinse off.
What you'll need: Honey, Sugar and Your Toner!
I used 3-4 tbsp of honey, around 2 tbsp of sugar and about 1 tsp of toner. You can play around with the proportions depending on how grainy you want your scrub. I usually like mine to be thicker and to have a lot of beads to really get my skin exfoiliated. Those with sensitive skin may want to use less sugar.
This will make one small container or bowl of scrub.
Step 1: Sugar and Honey
Mix these two together, adding more or less depending on the consistency and amount of the scrub desired.
Step 2: Add Toner
Depending on how thick you want your scrub, add anywhere from two to 1 tsp of toner (or more) to your scrub.
That's it! You've got yourself a scrub all ready to go. Store in airtight container in fridge or use right away.

Before I struggled with extremely oily skin and occasional break outs. Now my skin is much less oily and very few break outs.
Got all the ingredients now! Can't wait to see how it turns out.
Can't wait to give this a try!
Hmm i definatelly will try this...i'm intrigued!
this looks really good! I love a good honey mask on my face anyday, so I can imagine loving this too. I have this thing (herb? veg? dunno) that I'm supposed to blend and make into a paste and put it on my face. It's supposed to really cleanse the skin, clear away blemishes and brighten the tone. I haven't tried it yet but I'm really tempted to try it soon! Maybe tonight? I'll post back if I do (and with the name of the herb / veg / whatnot).
I cant do scrubs my face is to sensitive.But sugar scrubs are great for exfoliating!Those are all really good ingredients for the face.My latest one Ive mixed up which is really good for sensitive skin is....green clay,ground up oatmeal,essential lavender oil.My face feels so soft afterwards...Tea Tree oil is excellent for problem skin!Good DIY Alex I really enjoy these :)
