With Mother's Day this Sunday, I thought it was the perfect time for this post. A simple DIY that encourages pampering and "me time"...just what a mama needs.
Homemade facial scrubs are easy enough to do with the kiddos and they make lovely gifts. And best of all, they can be made with kitchen staples, take just minutes to mix up, and can be customized by skin type. Hello Glow has an excellent tutorial with all kinds of mixtures to suit different needs. After some experimentation, I came up with my own blend that I really love:
- 2 T coconut oil
- 1 T ground almonds (if you don't have, just double-up the oatmeal)
- 1 T oatmeal
- Squeeze of honey
- Spritz of grapefruit (you can also use lemon, but I like the idea of using the rest of the grapefruit for a cocktail).
Sometimes I add a bit of avocado for a creamy scrub, but if I'm being honest, I usually just decide to use the avocado for guacamole to enjoy with my grapefruit cocktail.
Happy Mother's Day!
