Introduction: The Do-It-Yourself Facial Scrub: How to Make Scrubs From Everyday Kitchen Items

http://www.styleunited.com/TipsAndTrends/article/Beauty-Starts-in-the-Kitchen In this video Tami explains how to make your own DIY facial scrubs made from food products including coffee, oatmeal & honey and sugar & olive oil.

Coffee Ground Scrub: After making a pot of coffee, allow the used grounds to cool and apply them in a circular motion to your face. This is an invigorating scrub that increases blood flow and can help wake you up.

Oatmeal and Honey Scrub: Add enough honey to the oatmeal to form a paste.  This is a mild mask that is great for people with sensitive skin.

Sugar and Olive Oil Scrub: Start with a bowl of sugar and add enough olive oil to make the sugar moist. Table sugar is fine but raw sugar is better for a more exfoliating scrub.

Can you contain the pastes and use them for later or does its effect only work in a short period of time?

Fresh is best! Otherwise, mould occurs.
