Homemade Skin Care

Hey everyone, so I have recently been really into creating my own facial masks and scrubs and thought I would share a couple with you :)

Homemade face scrub - 

  1. Grind up a handful of porridge oats in a blender, add a tablespoon of caster sugar and mix.
  2. Take a small amount of the powdery mixture in a bowl adding VERY SMALL AMOUNTS of water at a time until the mix is a kind of paste (you could also use honey if you wanted.)
  3. Gently rub the mix over your face, concentrating on the chin, nose and forehead avoiding the eye area.
  4. Rinse with warm water. 
You can also make a simpler cleanser by adding a teaspoon of sugar to you everyday face wash.

Banana face mask - 

  1. Mash together half a ripe banana, a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of thick cream (you could use olive oil if you have particularly dry skin) 
  2. smooth over the face and leave for at least 15 minutes, then wash off.
  3. you can store left overs in the fridge, use within 3 days.  
I hope you guys enjoyed this post as a little mid-week post I will post another in a few days :)
