If you are looking for excellent facial scrubs, try making your own at home!  There are excellent homemade facial scrub recipes out there for all skin types. Making your own with a facial scrub recipe can be quite fun and it is likely they will be better for your skin than over the counter products that have a lot of chemicals.

Homemade facial scrub for normal skin can be made of many ingredients. One of them is a brown sugar scrub. To make this facial scrub take 1 tsp olive oil and 1 tbsp of brown sugar. It is simple to mix in your palm. If you feel it needs to be a bit more spreadable, add a drop or two more of olive oil. You should massage in your facial scrub in a circular motion. Rinse with warm water and hold a warm washcloth over your face for a few minutes before using your favorite moisturizer.

Another great scrub for all types of skin is a salt scrub. These scrubs retail at spas for $100s but you can make your own at home.  This particular facial scrub recipe makes a small container of scrub, not a one- time use scrub like above. For this homemade facial scrub take ½ cup of sweet almond oil or favorite light massage oil. Add 1 cup of fine sea salt and about 10 drops of essential oils. If you want a relaxing scrub, add lavender. For an energizing scrub, use lemongrass or rosemary.

A facial scrub recipe for oily skin is good enough to eat, and you actually could eat it if you wanted to! This scrub is made from 1 tbsp of oatmeal, ¼ tsp dried yeast and 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice. You will want to mix the ingredients in a small bowl, making sure they are totally mixed before applying. Gently massage into your skin and rinse with warm water.

If you have dry skin, this facial scrub recipe is great. This one is also edible, but it will work better if it is on your face. In a small bowl, mix 4 tsp of regular oatmeal with 8 tsp of buttermilk. You simply wait until the oatmeal has soaked up the buttermilk then apply the paste to your face. Try to leave it on for about 15 minutes before scrubbing it into your skin. Be gentle and rinse with warm water.
