Read on for the ingredients instructions and benefits.
Why make the Rose Sugar Scrub?
Questionable ingredients inside the store-bought scrubs
The beauty industry offers tones of products that will exfoliate your skin. These are products that contain plastics, irritating fragrances, glycerin, parabens, phthalates and other questionable ingredients. Unfortunately, often the store-bought products can do harm than good to the delicate facial skin.
Homemade is safer and cheaper
The good news is that you can just wander over to your kitchen pantry and with only a few natural ingredients, you can make a wide range of skin care products, including nourishing face exfoliators like the rose sugar face scrub.
Cleanse, exfloiate, tighten and hydrate - you name it, and there is a DIY facial scrub for it. Plus, when you use ingredients that you find in your own kitchen, like sugar, oil, baking soda, lemon juice, and sea salt, you’ll know you are keeping your skin healthy. Not only that, but a facial scrub made at home allows you to mix up as much or little as you need for a fraction of the price of a commercial product.
Benefits of the Rose Sugar Scrub
Benefits? This scrub is loaded!
Starting with its main purpose to exfoliate - the blended sugar exfoliates gently, shedding dead skin cells, dirt and makeup.
The carrier oils in it are to moisturize and sooth the skin. Coconut oil is known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits. It is there also to replenish and re-hydrate your scrubbed skin.
Sweet Almond Oil
Adding a tablespoon of sweet almond oil can do wonders for the skin too. It helps the skin look smooth, soft, and free of fine lines. Almond oil is rich in fatty acids which help the skin retain moisture. Moreover, it can heal chapped and flaking skin.
Rose essential oil
By adding rose essential oil to the rose sugar scrub, you will benefit from its emollient properties. This means that rose oil will help your skin stay hydrated and supple. Rose oil can also help with reducing redness and inflammation, and soothing dry skin.
Rose petals will give you rose sugar scrub indulgent color and scent so you can feel like you took yourself to the spa.
