Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a great day. So in today's video, I'm going to show you how to make an easy face scrub using only three ingredients. The three ingredients that you 'll be needing for this facial scrub are Lemon, sea salt and just warm water. I always recommend that you do a facial at least once every couple of weeks, just to have your skin have that natural glow. The lemon and salt face scrub it's also known as an antibacterial scrub, so it will help to get rid of any dirt or any pollution, anything that is stuck in your skin and in your pores, it's really important to do this because otherwise your skin can lead to blackheads and acne and break out, and nobody wants that on their face. Try this scrub once or twice a week and you'll notice a huge difference, your skin will be glowing, you'll be feeling nice and soft, and you will be getting that you know, that you've gotten rid of all of the dirt. The important thing is that you don't want to use too much lemon, so make sure you use one part lemon, two parts salt. So let's get started, I'm going to go wash my face with warm water and I'll be right back.

    So, I've just rinsed my face with warm water
    .

I would like to thank WendyTung for the awesome video on how to DIY Face and Body Sugar n' Oats Scrub. I organized it into a wiki for anyone with a hearing impairment, or for those who just prefer to read the steps. Hope you enjoy it. :)

Steps

  1. 1
    Today I'm going to show you how to make your own face and body scrub using ingredients found in your kitchen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 2
    Exfoliating your face and body at least once a week allows for your new skin to shine through, leaving you looking vibrant and refreshed, and also allows your skin care products and lotions to penetrate your skin more easily
    .
    Let's go ahead and get started. You'll need a plastic container like this one I found in my kitchen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 3
    Also, you will need a measuring cup
    .
    I'm just using a small cup from my kitchen as well.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 4
    A spoon to stir all the ingredients together
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 5
    A food processor or blender that can ground the ingredients
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 6
    I am using organic sugar as my exfoliant today but feel free to use brown or granulated sugar
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 7
    You will also need a light olive oil, you can use extra version olive oil if you want, I just hate olives so I don't particularly want the smell in my scrub
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 8
    You will also need Oats, roller instant Oats is fine, you'll be grounding this up into a powder
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 9
    An essential oil such as tea tree oil is completely optional, and it's not recommended if you have very sensitive skin
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 10
    Oat is used as a natural cleanser
    .
    basically absorbing and removing surface dirt and impurities, leaving your skin with a natural glow and reliefs your skin of any dryness.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 11
    If you don't want to use olive oil, feel free to use other oils such as sesame or almond oil
    .
    Almond oil is rich in vitamin A and E, it is gentle enough to not clog your pores, and due to the high content of antioxidants, it's a very moisturizing ingredient.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 12
    First, I'm going to go ahead and grind up some of my Oats
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 13
    I'm just pouring a little bit of Oats into here, it kind of just depends on how much of the scrub you want to make
    .
    So I'm just pouring this into my grinder.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 14
    You can use again a blender if that's all you have, or just a food processor with me work a little bit better
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 15
    Once it's ground, I'll just be measuring my Oats into my cup or in your case any kind of cup or measuring cup is fine
    .
    however the amount of ground Oats I have, I'll need to measure an equal amount of my sugar.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 16
    So, I'm going to go ahead and pour my Oats in, and see how much of the cup it fills
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 17
    Next, I'm just going to pour it into my bowl or container
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 18
    However, much Oats filled up this cup I'm just going to fill the cup to the exact same amount with my sugar
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 19
    Since it's equal parts of the dry ingredients, a real measuring cup isn't really essential
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 20
    I'm just going to mix the two and stir them well
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 21
    Once it's all stirred together
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 22
    I am going to pour and just enough olive oil to coat the dry mixture, I don't want my Sugar and Oats to be swimming in a bowl of oil, just coated
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 23
    I'm going to stir the mixture using a spoon
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 24
    Since I'm deciding to add tea tree oil, I'm going to switch mixing utensils to one I can through away when I'm done
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 25
    A popsicle stick is perfect for this
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 26
    Now, I'm going to go ahead and add in a five to seven drops of my essential oil
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 27
    Make sure to stir this drops well
    .
    If you have sensitive skin, skip the tea tree oil and maybe add in some Lavender oil for a soothing scrub. but tea tree oil has antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal effects, which is great for clearing up your skin on both your face and body.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  • 28
    Since I stirred everything together in my container, I'm just going to pop on my lid and I'm done
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Hi guys. Today I'm going to show you how to make a Coconut Oil Facial and body scrub.
    

    Steps

    1. 1
      You are going to need, Coconut Oil, Baking Soda, small Bowl, and a Spoon
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    2. 2
      First, you need to pour a small amount of Baking Soda into the Bowl
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    3. 3
      Use the Spoon to break apart big chunks, and keep doing that till you get all the chunks out
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    4. 4
      Add the same amount of Coconut Oil into your bowl
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    5. 5
      Stir the ingredients together until they are mixed
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    6. 6
      Put the mixture a proper pot and microwave for 20 seconds, I usually put the microwave to 30 seconds and stop it at 10
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    7. 7
      keep on stirring the mixture
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    8. 8
      If the mixture did not melt completely, then you need to microwave for another 10 to 15 seconds
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    9. 9
      Stir and make sure that the mixture is completely melted
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    10. 10
      Now, put the mixture into the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    11. 11
      After 5 to 10 minutes, you should have a very thick mixture, but since the Coconut Oil melts at a body temperature, it will melt when applied to your face or body
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    12. 12
      The Baking Soda makes the mixture have a gritty feel to it, which helps make it a scrub
      .
      You have to know that Coconut Oil should not irritate acne, as I use it as a facial scrub, and it made my skin very smooth! Hopefully, you enjoyed watching this video. Please like and don't forget to subscribe. Bye.

    Hello everyone. Today I am going to show you how to do the special mask and scrub to leave your skin really clean and fresh and ready for makeup.

    Steps

    1. 1
      Here are all the things we are going to use into this tutorial
      .
      We are going to need Sugar, Bowl, Spoon, Jar, and honey.
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    2. 2
      Let's start with pouring the sugar into the bowl
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    3. 3
      I usually like to put a little bit of sugar because I want the scrub to exfoliate my skin really well
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    4. 4
      You can add the honey slowly and then mixed it up
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    5. 5
      Try not to make the mask too thick otherwise, we won't be able to use it as a scrub
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    6. 6
      Well, as you can see my background today is a birthday gift paper, I didn't have any other background, but Yeah, I don't think this is too bad right
      ?
      Why is honey so good for our skin? Honey is a natural bacterial so it is great for acne treatment prevention, and it's also extremely moisturising, so really helps clay to go
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    7. 7
      You need something to store your scrub, and in my case, I am using this, as I didn't have any other jar to use in this tutorial
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    8. 8
      Remember, that it's not good to use this scrub more than three times
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    9. 9
      Try to make a new one for the next applications
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    10. 10
      So, before applying the face mask, I just want to make sure that my hair is not on my face
      .
      This is very frank because we don't want any sugar or honey on ore hair. Start applying the mask on your face with clean hands and gently avoiding the eyes area.
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    11. 11
      We are going to use the mask as an exfoliator so, start doing circle motions all of your skin to get rid of all dead skin cells
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    12. 12
      Be careful when you're exfoliating your face, you need to be gentle and soft otherwise, you can hurt your skin
      .
      Now that we are done with the first step.
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    13. 13
      Leave the mask on your face for five or ten minutes, as I usually do
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    14. 14
      To remove this scrub, rinse it off and then splash a cold water off your face, and make sure that you don't have any more sugar or honey on your skin
      .
      Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
    15. 15
      Now, you're ready to put your makeup on or just go to bed and rest your skin
      .
      This is a simple and inexpensive way to exfoliate your skin and make it look beautiful.
