Honey Almond Scrub Recipe

Honey Almond Scrub Recipe

Sooo... what's up?? I've totally been sick for the past couple of days. I was laid up in my bed almost all of yesterday feeling terrible, which is why I haven't really been posting for the last few days :( I did, however, manage to make this honey almond scrub that I've been meaning to do for ages!

You see, I've been looking for a good face scrub for awhile. I used to use Dark Angels by Lush, but I didn't like that it always left little bits of charcoal all over my face. I'm also a huge fan of Angels on Bare Skin... and I read somewhere that a main ingredient was ground almonds. I also used ground almonds in my body butters last spring.


What you need:

8 Tsp of ground almonds (just grind some almonds in a coffee grinder, food processor, etc.)
4 Tsp of honey
1 Tsp of lemon juice

MAGIC.

Honey Almond Scrub Recipe

This will make about 2oz of scrub, and I ordered a few 2oz jars from sunburstbottle.com to keep the mixture in.

Now, some more about why I chose these particular ingredients- The almonds are really gentle. They exfoliate your skin while not scratching/ tearing at it. This is really important. They also leave a small trace of almond oil behind, which is very good for skin :) The honey is a wonderful addition, because it is a humectant- it keeps moisture inside your skin. And the lemon has a brightening effect :)

I personally found this recipe to be very moisturizing, while not leaving my skin oily. The scrubbing aspect was perfect- not too harsh, but did its job. Also, this is another skin recipe in which you could probably find the items right in your cupboard already.

The best part about this recipe- if you get bored of it/ don't like it, you can just eat it (It's delicious.)

    1. i am a HUGE lush addict. but they can get expensive, and some of their stuff you can easily make at home. i feel like this is a good substitute... that way, i can splurge on some of their other products :)
