DIY Facial Scrub Recipes | Watsons PH

Majority of our exfoliating face scrubs and toothpastes contain microbeads. However, microbeads are bad news. If you aren’t familiar with the issue, the basic problem is that those tiny plastic spheres found in exfoliating scrubs and other beauty products are small enough that they can pass through water filtration systems, and ultimately end up in the stomachs of marine life. Still, there’s more than one way to whisk off dead skin. Here’s how to avoid all that and make your own DIY scrub with natural exfoliators


For Dry Skin:
Mix sea salt with lavender essential oil and your favourite massage oil to make a paste. Scrub in a circular motion and rinse.

For Acne-Prone Skin

Raw honey is known for its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, so mix with your preferred natural exfoliant (sea salt, sugar, oatmeal), massage into skin and rinse.

For Normal Skin

Mix sugar crystals with your favourite massage oil to make a paste — just try not to eat it!
