I have tried many natural scrubs before. Most are made in a base of sugar, salt or coffee. I found the sugar and salt to be simply ineffective, as they dissolve too quickly and I still need more exfoliating power. The coffee was just too much for my skin and my skin isn't all that sensitive. I specifically choose to put three ingredients into my Facial Exfoliant.
So for my base I went to the most calming natural ingredient out there- oats. I choose oats because it is soothing, moisturizing, cleansing and exfoliating.
I needed another ingredient that offered great exfoliation without being too abrasive on sensitive skin. I choose apricot kernel meal. This fine powder can be used a scrub without dissolving or being too rough.
Finally, I needed a product that would draw out and remove impurities from the skin. I choose Moroccan Rhassoul clay. This mineral rich clay reduces dryness, improves skin clarity, removes impurities and unblock pores, even stubborn blackheads.
I love making products that have many uses, like my Facial Oil. The Facial Oil can be used as a cleanser, make-up remover and serum. The Facial Exfoliant can be used as a daily scrub or a weekly or monthly mask.
Since I have added this product to my beauty routine, I find my skin to be soft, smooth, and my pores to be even and clear.
