Oatmeal Honey Body Scrub made at home. Skin care at home can both be inexpensive and effective. I love this oatmeal honey body scrub for its exfoliation power and simplicity. No dyes, no offensive scent, wont break the bank and takes 5 minutes to make. Winning!
My short article on How to Rock Your Skin Care Routine recommends exfoliating your entire body once a week. This helps remove dead skin cell build and leaves your skin silky smooth. This particular formula is perfect for winter time dry skin. Winter just kills me. My skin hates every minute of winter. It truly does.
Here are some reasons why you should be mixing up some oatmeal Honey Body Scrub today:
- Honey in the formula aids in soothing, moisturizing and has antioxidants. Antioxidants help slow down the aging process. We can all use a little of that.
- Oatmeal has numerous skin benefits including aiding in the healing of Psoriasis and Eczema. oatmeal moisturizes, scrubs and has saponin properties which cleanse.
- Sugar helps exfoliate and scrub away those dead skin cells leaving you with glowing skin.
- The most important ingredient is probably the olive oil. Olive oil is literally gold for all its potential uses from the kitchen to your hair, cuticles and skin. Olive oil helps calm skin irritation, moisturizes and is packed with antioxidants to help fight the aging process. Olive oil should be included in everyone’s beauty routine! It is ahhh-maz-ing!
Let’s make a batch of Oatmeal Honey body Scrub now!
- Gather your ingredients (oats, honey, brown sugar, granulated sugar, olive oil), measuring cup, spatula, large bowl for mixing, food processor or blender, and a sealable container. If you have kids around, a plastic container may be best.
- Put 1/2 cup oats into food processor and blend for 1 minute. Add to your mixing bowl.
- Add 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar into bowl.
- Add 2 tablespoons honey to bowl.
- Now add 1/4 cup olive oil and mix all ingredients together with the spatula.
- Look at your mixture, if too dry you will want to add more olive oil. Maybe 1/4 cup more or until it is at the consistency you like it. I prefer mine a little dry so it is easier to handle in the shower.
- Put scrub into sealable container. Use once a week for glowing, beautiful skin.
