Tried and Tested DIY Face Scrubs That You’ll Love


I am a skincare junkie and for the past two years I have been on the internet researching on different ways to make my skin smooth and healthy.

In this post, I have put together a few of DIY homemade facial scrubs that I have tried and yet to try.

There are a lot of beauty products on the market that will exfoliate your skin. However, they all contain strong chemicals that might be too strong for some skin types.

This list of facial scrubs however, are organic and homemade and will help exfoliate your skin. The good news is that, they’re inexpensive too.

Try these simple facial scrubs below and thank me later:
