A DIY Oatmeal Facial Scrub



It’s been a while since I’ve played with some items in my kitchen for a new DIY scrub.  A friend of mine has a spa, and one of the featured treatments was an oatmeal scrub.  It sounded amazing but wasn’t amazing was the cost.  So I decided, what a great idea for a Pantry to Pretty Bit.  The recipe is very similar to hers, but 90% of the cost.

What You’ll Need:
  • ¼ cup of ground whole oats.  I initially attempted to use an old coffee grinder to grind this, but ended up purchasing it at a store for a finer blend.
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of grape seed oil
  • One tablespoon of lemon
  • You can add milk or water to the mix.  I added milk.
  • You want to mix it all in a bowl, to a thick consistency.
  • Apply to face in a circle motion
  • Leave on for 30 minutes
  • Rinse and wash, moisturize as usual 

Storage: The mixture will last a while if stored properly.  If you have a mason jar or something air tight, I'd use that for storage.

The Benefits: Exfoliation of the skin helps with skin rejuvenation. Hence using a gentle mixture like this oatmeal DIY scrub, you'll be able to use it frequently leaving your skin soft and glowing.
