  • TIPS FOR USING AND MAKING HOME MADE FACE SCRUBS

    • Do these with your sister or best friend for a mini spa night at home while you catch up on gossip or a good chick flick.

    • If you have extra, store it in an air tight container in the fridge. Make sure you use it within 3 days though.

    • Like with any other face scrub, only use it 1 – 2 times a week.

    • Baking and bi-carbonate Soda is abrasive, so don’t use the face scrubs which contain it too regularly or leave it on your skin for too long. Especially if you have sensitive skin.
