DIY Facial Oil Cleansing Scrub

I’m back with another DIY beauty post! I love these, I really do. As I always say, I know I’m going to age, I just want to do it gracefully! Right now I have been trying to use as natural of products as I possibly can. I know not all products are bad, but I just don’t have the time to research each and every one of them to see what’s in them and how it affects you. So instead I’ve resorted to making my own! It’s actually very easy, doesn’t take a lot of time, and I know exactly what’s going on my skin. That’s got to be good, right?

So today I wanted to share a take on my oil cleansing face wash. I made it into a scrub. This one isn’t for everyday, but more when your skin is dry and you need to get rid of some extra dead skin cells. It will leave your skin feeling clean, fresh, and moisturized. Pair this up with some DIY eye serum, and DIY toner and you’ve got yourself an all natural skin care regime!

What you’ll need:

For the oil base I originally used a coconut oil that remains liquid because it is fractionated. If you have to melt your coconut oil, then it will be solid. It will still work, but if you want it like shown in the picture, use one of the oils I mentioned.

Mix all the wet ingredients together – the carrier oils, essential oils, vitamin E, then add the baking soda. Blend all together and you’re done!

Here’s the best way to use it. Get a little bit in your hand and gently rub it all over your face, avoiding the eye areas as the skin is more tender there. Once you have scrubbed and let it sit for a bit run the water as hot as you can stand it. Wet a wash cloth with the hot water and ring it out and lay it over your face for a few seconds giving yourself a little steam bath. Gently wipe off the oil. Repeat steps as many times as necessary until your face is all clean!

You should have enough excess oil on your face to just rub it all in for your nightly/daily moisturizer! If your face feels a little dry, add a little coconut oil as a moisturizer.

That’s it! This could be used 2 to 3 times a week as needed. It’s nice to exfoliate, specially during the dry winter months. It’s also a great way to keep things natural in your facial regime and hopefully keep that skin looking youthful!

Hope you enjoyed it! Feel free to pin & share!

Have a great day!
