Homemade Scrubs

I have a couple of homemade scrubs I wanted to share with all of you. It's nice because you know what you are putting on your skin and the ingredients 'should' be ready at hand.

The first scrub is an idea I got from a good friend. She posted this on Facebook and I knew I had to make it not just for me but for my neighbors. It's a peppermint scrub!

Peppermint Scrub

1cup of sugar
1/3 cup of mineral oil (I just used hypoallergenic baby oil)
2 T of corn syrup
1/2 tsp of peppermint extract
1 drop of green food coloring

Just mix this all together until all the sugar is moistened. I actually added a little bit more baby oil to mine. I put mine in some cute little half pint jars. For gifts just tie a cute ribbon around your jar. If your skin is super sensitive to breakouts try the scrub twice and if your skin breaks out stop using. You should exfoliate your face at least once a week...twice if you can to help keep dead skin from building up and getting into your pores. :)

The other scrub is even easier! Cut a lemon in half and put some sugar on it. Put it on your face and scrub away. Lemon helps with getting rid of age spots, light blemish scar coloring, and freckles(if you want them gone...though I love freckles). You could also put some lemon juice onto a cotton ball along with sugar and that should work fine too.

I hope you all have fun with your homemade scrubs!! Keep coming back for more beauty tips, tricks, and tutorials!

    Thanks for linking up at Tea Time Thursdays @ Kreative Korner and adding to the fun.

    The party for this week is going on... hope to see you there again :)

  7. Isn't this scrub sticky? Or does the mineral oil cut the sticky of the sugar?

  8. Could this be made with out the corn syrup? I don't like the idea of that being on my face if only for a few minutes. If I can make it with out, I am making some for myself!!

  9. This scrub isn't sticky and you can make it without corn syrup you will just need to be more careful not to spill it everywhere because the corn syrup helps it cling together. :)

  10. Love these scrubs. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  11. Where did you buy the containers for them?
