You can easily make a homemade face scrub for dry skin based on olive oil. I’ve got a very interesting recipe combining boiled potatoes, olive oil and apricot kernels powder. Why these products were selected?
The fact, that I have checked all my own recipes on my own face skin. I have dry sensitive skin that gets me a lot of trouble. Olive oil is indispensable ingredient for dry and sensitive skin care. It is an excellent thing to nourish and cleanse the skin.
Boiled potatoes moisturize facial skin and I like using it in hydrating mask recipes. Apricot powder is one of delicate exfoliators which we can use for facial scrub for sensitive and dry skin at home.
This potato peeling effect is very gentle and does not irritate the skin.
- 1/2 potato
- 1 Tbsp of olive oil
- 1 tsp of apricot kernels powder
Make this scrub when cooking boiled potatoes for garnish. You don’t have to cook potatoes specifically in this case.
Mash the potatoes with fork. Use hot product to obtain a homogeneous mass of lump free mashed potato. Add the olive oil and apricot kernels powder into complete puree.
I will not dwell on the past how to make apricot kernels powder. That is my post Apricot Facial Scrub described in detail. I keep some stock of crushed apricot kernels all the time.
Combine all ingredients. The mixture turns thick and soft.
Take the mixture with your fingertips and begin to rub it on your face. Massage the skin for 3-5 minutes.
Then enjoy relax or do other things leaving the scrub on the face.
After 15-20 minutes gently pat the face with paper napkin and wash with warm water.
Use your favorite moisturizer after all.
Touch your skin. It is smooth and gentle. Look in the mirror. Face skin is natural color without redness feeling pleasant.
