Raw Beauty: AWESOME Homemade Face/Body Scrub.

I blame toxic cosmetics/soaps/creams/etc for my skin still being significantly less than flawless.  Therefore, among a couple other changes, I have decided to make my own face wash from now on.  I mixed rolled oats, raw turbinado sugar, and mashed blueberries with a little water and used it as a facial exfoliate in the shower just now and WHAT.  THE @&%#.  As I was using it I could already feel the difference.  My skin has never been softer or smoother in my life.  Another bonus is not getting disgusting soap in my mouth, no sir, just blueberries and sugar HI fantastic.  As a follow up, I applied a 100% pure witch hazel/rose petal toner instead of the usual Clearasil crap.  Perfecto!  I highly recommend looking up vegan DIY beauty/hygiene and trying something that sounds good for you =]

4 hours later and no makeup other than a little eyeliner/mascara, my skin still looks and feels prettyyy sweet, if I may say so myself.  The verdict?  Wash your face with blueberries people.  (and oatmeal and sugar… and follow up with witch hazel…)

Have you tried using oil on your face? I've been experimenting with the oil cleansing method. Your scrub sounds great though, I'm going to try it!

Nice post.

I've used baking soda made into a paste. Then I applied the half of lemon to my face directly. Moisturize with coconut oil. Fruit works great! Papaya, strawberries, avocado, etc..
