How to Exfoliate Your Face Using Homemade Ingredients?

Home Facial IdeasWith spring fast approaching, you should be on the hunt for a superb exfoliant that will make you skin glow. Don’t worry you because you won’t have to look far. The perfect exfoliant could be hidden in your kitchen cupboards. What follows are a few ways to make a homemade skin exfoliant from ingredients in your kitchen

The Basic Kitchen Exfoliant

Baking soda can replace many harsh and toxic household cleaners and apparently store bought skin exfoliant when combined with sea salt which will exfoliate. Take half a teaspoon of salt and one teaspoon of baking soda. If your skin is sensitive, you can add some olive oil to soothe inflammation and irritation.

Oats, Honey, and Apple Vinegar Exfoliant

Who knew that oats and honey could make more than a satisfying breakfast? Two to three teaspoons of ground raw oats and honey with a fourth of a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar creates an adventurous exfoliant that will leave your skin feeling fresh and anew. The amount of honey depends on how sticky you want the mix. The vinegar smooths it out. You can add a drop of basil oil or tea tree oil to quicken the healing process.

Oatmeal, Honey, and Egg White Mask

One cup of plain oatmeal combined with half a cup of honey and one egg will create an intense pasty textured exfoliant that will hydrate the skin. Next time you’re preparing a bowl of oatmeal, put some aside for your next homemade facial.

Argan Oil Exfoliant

Arian oil is a lightweight oil made from the Moroccan Aegean tree. It has restorative and age-defying effects, and it deeply hydrates hair, nails, and skin. Like the recipes as mentioned above, it is also edible, as it can replace olive oil in your favorite vinaigrette. In this instance, can add a few drops of the oil to one teaspoon of crushed almonds, half a teaspoon of honey, half a teaspoon of milk, and half a teaspoon of tomato juice to create an amazing Homemade skin exfoliant.

Cucumber and Avocado Exfoliant

Not only does the combination of cucumbers and avocados make an excellent salad, but it is also good for face masks as they contain soothing oils and hydrating elements. Mix it with strawberries, honey, oatmeal or ground almonds to create a viscous skin exfoliant and probably a delicious smoothie. Try concocting a combination of a fourth a cup of grated cucumber, diced avocado, and one of the previously mentioned ingredients.


Once you’ve mixed your ingredients, apply it in a circular motion and let it sit for about 15 minutes then rinse it off with cold water to close your pores. Afterwards, use a good moisturizer or sunscreen to lock in that moisture. Please be advised not to use the other exfoliants more than three days a week. If used excessively, your skin will dry out.
