Cleansing Facial Scrub for Oily Skin

Facial scrubs can be expensive, and when your skin is congested it's all too easy to buy products which promise a miracle.



When you have spots, a break out, or are suffering with oily skin, natural products are the answer. Keep your skin care regime simple, and your skin will respond in time.

I have been using the following facial scrub for over a year, and I can't believe I didn't know about the benefits of some of the store-cupboard ingredients that were in my kitchen all this time.

Firstly, lemon, salt, and black pepper are fantastic at keeping your skin squeaky clean, but it's their natural properties, which get to work on the congested areas.

The secret weapon in this facial oil however is Neem oil. Organic and cold pressed, it is a strong-scented herbal remedy that is high in natural antibacterial properties, but also fatty acids, which restore the skins natural elasticity - essential for healthy, glowing skin.

To make this facial scrub follow the steps below:

Ingredients
2 tblsp sea salt
2 tbslp table salt
Half a lemon
Tsp black pepper
Half tsp organic, cold pressed Neem oil

Required ingredients


Method
Pour the sea salt into a small jar/pot.



Add the Neem oil.

Slice the lemon in half.



Squeeze the juice from the lemon into the bowl.



Add to the lemon slices to the bowl of salt along with the pepper.



Add the rest of the table salt.



Stir together using your fingers, and keep in your bathroom.



Because of the natural properties of the scrub, it will keep perfectly well for two weeks.

I use two different salts because the sea salt exfoliates the upper dermis layer of skin, and the finer table salt will scrub away the dead skin cells which are slightly beneath the upper dermis, which can cause congestion.

Many consider congested skin a reaction to sugar, but spots can appear for a number of reasons: stress, fatigue, diet, etc. A lot of people don't realise an oily layer is because your face is producing too much sebum, either because it is too dry (you are mistakenly using a 'drying' moisturiser to combat the shine), or because of a hormonal imbalance. While balancing your hormones can be a daily struggle, using this facial scrub will aid your efforts, and undoubtedly make your skin smoother, and put up a better fight against those pesky spots.
