Freshly made: A quick scrub for face and hands

Today I want to share with you an amazing and quick tip for renewing the skin on your face and hands. Each of us is sometimes in a situation when you’d like to look your best, but you don’t have enough time to do the facial care and manicure. Well, this is an inexpensive but very effective advice when you need to refresh your skin and look radiant. If you wear makeup, remove it first with an organic cleanser. Then you proceed with this great and easy home-made peeling.

The most important factor here is the quality of the oil. You don’t want to use just a normal oil that would clog your pores. Instead choose an organic cold pressed oil for skin.

I suggest an organic grapeseed oil, because of its nourishing properties. Akamuti grapeseed oil is a nice choice. This light oil absorbs easily, without leaving that greasy feeling on your hands and face. Because of a high level of essential proteins and linoleic acid, it helps to protect the skin. It’s suitable for all skin types.

You need: 2 teaspoons of sugar and a few drops of grapeseed oil. Mix together these 2 ingredients until you achieve a smooth texture. If it’s too dry add more oil. If you make it too much, don’t worry, you can put it in a glass jar, where it lasts a few weeks. Anyway, I always prefer it freshly made. If you don’t like its natural smell, add a drop of rose organic essential oil, Akamuti Rose Otto Essential Oil for example.

Apply this mixture on your face and massage gently, then remove it with water. Repeat the same on your hands. The result is a radiant healthy looking skin with a really slight glow on your face, but not looking greasy. When you have no time, this is a quick and effective radiance booster that refreshes your skin. The skin is also prepared for makeup, if you want to wear it.

    Little squirrel 🙂 Olive oil it’s also a very good choice! And yes, oat meal is also a good choice for making a face scrub. I guess your skin looked great after the treatment:)
