Almond & Orange Facial Scrub
Skin looks and feels best when regularly but gently exfoliated. Not only does this improve dryness, but it also stimulates new cell turnover. The result is a fresh complexion that glows. This formula is perfect for summer skin care.
½ cup ground almonds
½ cup dried, ground orange peel
1 cup ground oats
4 drops sweet orange essential oil (optional)
Tip: Use a spice or coffee grinder to grind the almonds, orange peel and oats.
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl; stir to mix. Add the essential oil and stir well to incorporate. Store in a clean glass jar with a lid. To use, mix a small amount in the palm of your hand with warm water to make a paste. Massage onto skin using small, circular motions, taking care to avoid the eye area. Rinse well with warm water, followed by a few splashes of cool water. Pat skin dry. Tone and moisturize as usual. Use weekly for best results.
