Winter Exfoliating Facial Scrub-gullycreekcottage-jar

Winter is among us here in little Mayberry.  A slow start but here nonetheless.  Bringing with it sinus, congestion and drier skin for me. I’m always mindful of taking care of my skin and pores but winter does take its toll.  My post is on a winter exfoliating facial scrub that helps with glowing-softer skin and you will most likely have these ingredients in your kitchen already.  It’s such a great refreshing blend and the lemon scent will make you not – think of winter!

An inexpensive little facial scrub that takes minutes to make.  Your lips, hands and feet as well as exfoliating your lovely piel (skin) will all benefit from this scrub.  You will love the radiant – soft outcome.

Those little dry skin, face flurries will disappear along with dry patches. You’ll get supple and glowing skin that will thank you for paying that little attention to it.Never have been a girl that spends foolishly on facial products because I prefer to keep it natural when I can.  That applies to scrubs, moisturizers, and daily creams if at all possible.  If you’ve never made your own facial scrubs or moisturizers it’s really not that complicated.  You use items that you typically already have at home.  Products like coconut oil, grapeseed oil, castor oil, sugars, and salts are all great ingredients to start with.  You want to keep it natural, and what can be more natural than lemons, honey, and sugar?

My pantry always has local grown honey not just for my sopapillas and hot tea but to use for natural remedies as well. In my fridge you’ll usually find lemons!  I’m a HUGE tea drinker but lemons also are great for so many things.  During my sinus issue days I drink lots of hot lemon tea with honey and it’s perfectly soothing and healing.

Don’t laugh when I tell you that you’ll want to eat this scrub and of course, you can if you want. It smells so good and it tastes wonderful! You can drop spoonfuls of this in your hot tea (seriously). Simple & natural ingredients.  But if you want to know how to use it and store it for exfoliating, follow the easy steps below.  It takes less than 5 minutes to mix up and you’ll reap several weeks of exfoliating for your efforts.
