I don’t use a ton of beauty products. Face wash, shampoo, conditioner, a bar of soap, deodorant…you know, the basics.
One thing I never buy is a facial scrub (or a body scrub for that matter) because it’s just so easy to make.
Lately, my go-to scrub has been lime juice, salt, lemon essential oil, and tea tree oil. Can you guess why I’m calling it a “margarita scrub?” If you want something a little gentler you could use an extra fine sugar and add a little coconut oil to soothe your skin. For me, though, these four ingredients work magic.
With its brightening lime juice, sloughing salt, and bacteria-killing tea tree oil, this scrub is great on oily skin.
The ratios aren’t set in stone, but my scrub usually looks something like this.
Juice of 1 lime
5+ tbsp. of salt
3-4 drops of lemon essential oil
3-4 drops of tea tree oil
Mix the ingredients together and massage into your skin. Don’t scrub excessively. I don’t scrub for more than a minute.
Enjoy! And let me know what sort of DIY beauty potions you make.
