Rose and Epsom salt face scrub

Hey guys. I’ve been having a bit of a spot breakout lately and really needed something to help clear up my face. So as a bit of an impulse I hopped up off the couch to make something refreshing and cleansing for my skin. After a rummage through the garden I found an almost wilting rose head, and so I took some of the petals. Then, I found some lavender and put ’em together. Both are anti-inflammatories and help to combat acne. The lime juice is antibacterial, an astringent and removes dead skin. Putting in the Epsom salts made this bad boy mix into a scrub! Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients:DSCN3681.JPG

  • a handful of rose petals or 1/2 tsp rosewater
  • 2 tbsp fresh lavender
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp Epsom saltsDSCN3692

(I made enough for 1 use, so there is less of the ingredients in the picture)

Method:

  1. Crush the rose petals and lavender up in a mortar and pestle until it becomes a bit mushy, and the juices have run out
  2. Add the lime juice, continue to crush the mixture
  3. Pour in the Epsom salts, and add to a jar/tub to store
  4. After splashing your face with warm water, apply the scrub with your hands or with a cotton pad, until your skin is covered
  5. Wash off with warm water, and close your pores with a splash of cold water

So that’s it really! It’s a very simple scrub but it does wonders for your skin. Let me know how it worked for you in the comments below or on Facebook and Twitter 🙂
