An apple and oatmeal face scrub is a dual action exfoliator: mechanical and chemical. Acid contained in the apple dissolved the old skin cells. In addition an apple face masks nourish and moisturize the skin well. Oatmeal works as a mechanical peeling.
I’ve got sensitive skin and have to use delicate scrubs. Oatmeal crushed in a coffee grinder is coming gentler and I add it in the scrub. One more ingredient I add in – is eggshells. How to prepare it for use read the article Natural Facial Scrub Recipe.
Ground up egg shells has very small but solid structure and it is a good component for home scrubs. I collect eggshells for a while and make powder from them. It is normally stored for long time and I always have it on hand.
- ½ apple
- 1 Tbsp of ground oatmeal
- 1 tsp of eggshells powder
Grate the half of the apple to get the puree. Add the oatmeal and egg shells.
Mix all together.
Handle your face skin with the mixture paying attention to problem areas on the forehead, nose and chin.
Do not touch the eye area. Massage your face for 3-5 minutes. Then wash your face with cold water and apply your favorite moisturizer.
You can use an apple and oatmeal face scrub independently of your skin type.
I would appreciate your opinion.
