I make my own scrubs and various other concoctions in the kitchen all the time. The options are endless, all you need is some imagination. A little honey, water and sugar (white or brown, brown tends to be a little more gentle) makes a lovely scrub for all over including face. A splash of ACV once in a while is nice too but not a daily thing since ACV can be drying if used too often. I never measure when I make mine though; I just mix everything in a bowl and add whatever I need more of to get the consistency I'm looking for.

The easiest scrub to make is baking soda and water. A combination which is also a good clarifier for the hair/scalp to get rid of product buildup or just add some baking soda to your usual shampoo for the same effect. :)

I could go on and on all day here listing the "crazy" things I whip up in the kitchen for my hair and skin....

Sorry to be gone so long . . . I missed you all so much !!

Brown sugar is also a humectant . . .whereas salt is drying so I always recommend sugar, unless you need to detox - then salt in moderation on the body and NEVER the face.

I still need to post on the ACV topic . . . I promise !

one of my old favorites.. on May 18, 2008 @ 11:42 am

An exfoliant my facialist recommended to me a long time ago.. dry oatmeal + milk... it smells like the original Aveeno (really good) and a proportional mix to result in a sticky paste is really good to rub over stubborn ingrowns.
