DIY Honey & Coconut Face Scrub


For the last few years I have been searching for a great natural face wash. Something that isn't full of harsh chemicals, dyes, fragrances or unnecessary ingredients and that leaves my skin feeling healthy and looking great. Since I've suffered with eczema in the past I'm very picky about what goes on my sensitive skin. I've tried and tested dozens of "natural" skin care products over the years, all costing a near fortune, and to be honest I wasn't happy with any of them. I also question how natural many of these products are. With so many companies greenwashing their image to make us think that their products are natural, it's hard to keep up.

Because I have combination skin (both oily & dry at times) I was in need of a gentle exfoliator that would also moisturize at the same time. I wasn't happy with the commercial products available so I turned to the internet for a recipe, and what I found was awesome. My friend, Selena Burgess, had created a recipe for a Honey & Coconut Face Scrub. I was a bit sceptical at first, but after trying it I was so pleased that I did, and also a bit annoyed I waited so long. I've been using Selena's recipe for 3 months now and am thrilled with the results. I have less black heads, no dry patches and my skin feels super soft. 

The best part is that Selena's recipe is simple to make and only uses 5 ingredients that many people have readily available at home: water, baking soda, baking powder, raw honey & coconut oil. So if you've been searching for a natural way to keep you skin looking bright, smooth & beautiful, bust open your pantry and try making Selena's recipe. She's an all round cool chick and always has amazing ideas. Her new blog They Roar just launched recently and is sure to be a big hit. Check it out! For the full recipe click here.
