_Facials | Skincare at home!
So I decided to try my hand at a homemade facial scrub!
I've bought some facial scrubs in the past (as a teen) and HATED them. The bits were too small and I always had grit in my eyes afterwards. Uuurgh!
Anyhu, today I got some Epsom salts on my expedition to a BSS (Beauty supply store to the un-initiated) and thought I'd google a recipe or two. In the end though, I just grabbed some salt and an oil I like for my hair and went for it!
Ingredients of my mix:
1/2 tablespoon of Epsom Salts
1 teaspoon of Rapeseed oil
What I found:
It was nice! Better than that, even. The bits were good-sized so no tiny grit for my eyes. I applied the mix with the pads of my fingers (of course avoiding my eyes) and gave a good (gentle) scrub to my cheeks and forehead. Then I rinsed with my Witch foaming face wash. One rinse only and I am happy with the results. Smooth skin, not irritated and ready for night-time moisture.
I use my Bare Minerals Face Cream with 3 drops of Rosehip oil (the latter of which seems to be fading my hyperpigmented areas nicely).
That's my DIY for now!
(Ps: the coconut milk/avocado hair treatment was DIVINE! Left it on overnight and had the softest hair out there! - proper post to follow soon).
