DIY eco-friendly beauty products sound complicated? That's what I thought. While I've made the move to more natural hair and skin care products, I've never tried my hand at making them myself. But after reading this week's Proper Green article all about natural shampoos and conditioners, I was inspired to give them a try.
So, I thought I'd start simple. Considering I had all the ingredients in my pantry already, I set out to make my very own organic facial scrub. The "recipe" I followed was pretty lenient, so it seemed relatively fail proof.
I added equal parts oats and sugar (organic, of course) then added a bit of water to make a paste.
I applied it to my face, rinsed with warm water and said hello to cleaner, softer looking skin. It was a little messy rubbing oat paste on my face and I couldn't quite bring myself to share a picture with you all, but the results were totally worth it! I'll definitely be adding this scrub to my weekly beauty regiment — it's the perfect remedy for my winter-chapped skin.
