Today we are talking skincare! How is your skincare routine for the winter? MIne needed a little make-over after the holidays.
Apperently November and December were not that cold compered to the usual temperetures of the season, plus in January it got suddenly very cold and humid…the worst… to this we can happily add a very unhealthy food habit from the holidays…and tadàà my skin is a real mess!!!
So, among the hacks for a good skincare routine, I choose to talk scrubs as main subject of today’s post.
SCRUBS are amazing cause they give your skin a real immediate make-over, with many benefits… of course you do not have to exceed with it but once a week it is a fine habit to keep in your routine!
I like more of a DIY recepie when it comes to scrubs, cause I can decide the quantity of the product and change the ingridients according to what my face needs…plus is super easy … and that’s always good.
My recent go to scrub is the “Honey Lemon Sugar Scrub” which I feel every grandmother / mother tought us… it’s a CLASSIC…probably like the basics of scrubs, something that provides smoothness, cellular change and has a purifying effect! Want to try it? you should, these are the ingrediets, I normally use!
- 1 cup cane sugar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons raw honey
- 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 10 drops lavender essential oil (optional, if you like it)
It is very easy to use, just mix sugar, olive oil, and raw honey all together.
Once you incorporeted all those ingridients, add lemon juice and oils ..combine everything and voilà easy peasy , you are done!
Let me know if you try it! Or what other kind of scrubs are great for combination/dry skin… ??? Any advise please share, I would love to hear it!
