With fall comes winter and with winter comes some seriously dry skin. Ok I exaggerate slightly. My skin doesn’t get crazy dry like some, but it does go a little crazy in general. Some days it’s too dry and other days it’s super oily and I struggle to keep it in balance.
I’ve tried out my fair share of lotions and moisturizers and eventually one day I got tired of it and decided to start researching different scrubs made from natural ingredients. I played around a bit and made some adjustments but this is one that I’ve done for a few years now (I’ve also made as gifts for people during the holidays!).
Now this only calls for a few simple ingredients- most of which you can probably find right around your house. I try to use a cold pressed, high quality olive oil and I enjoy adding the lavender essential oil (though it isn’t required) to it for its calming effects and nice scent.
DIY Olive Oil and Honey Sugar Scrub
3 TBSP Cold Pressed Olive Oil
2 TBSP Local Honey
1/2 Cup Sugar
6-8 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
Mix all ingredients together and store in a sealed container. Apply and rinse off in the evenings several times a week after washing your face.
