Wash your hands first. Use warm water to wet your face. Use a mild soap designed for your skin type. Rinse and pat dry your newly clean face.
Moisturize for your skin type. I love making homemade body products, and scrubs made with sugar or salt are particularly easy to put together. Tangerine essential oil is said to be calming to the mind as well as uplifting to the spirit, which all sounds good to me, but you could certainly use a different essential oil such as lavender if you like.
In fact, in the photo above, the brown sugar scrub was made with lavender essential oil. I like to use this type of scrub once or twice a week at most. Another caution: be sure to use care on sensitive areas of your body, such as your face. I store my scrubs in pretty glass jars. Yield: 1 cup. Prep Time: 2 minutes. Total Time: 2 minutes. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. If the scrub seems too oily to you, add a bit more sugar conversely, if it seems to dry, add a bit more oil. Transfer to a container with a tight-fitting lid for storage away from sunlight: it should keep for a while.
Scoop out some to use on your body when you are in the shower; after use, rinse and gently pat yourself dry with a towel so some of the oil from the scrub remains on your skin.
