Facial scrubs are an essential part of a beauty routine. Using a weekly scrub on your face and body is the perfect way to exfoliate your skin.
Exfoliation is when you remove the old, dead skin from the surface of your skin, ensuring a healthy glow of fresh skin.
Exfoliation scrubs have been linked with stopping the development of wrinkles! So if you want to maintain beautiful youthful skin, make sure you give your face a little scrub once a week & ensure you wear sunblock daily!
VEGAN FACIAL SCRUBS
Why make your own natural vegan skin scrub? Well, if you are vegan it can be tough to buy products in the store that you know have all vegan ingredients. Making your own scrub is the best way to ensure that you can keep to your vegan lifestyle.
Even if you aren’t vegan, it’s great to know every ingredient going into your scrub. Oftentimes, products have confusing ingredients with words you’ve never seen before. When you make your own natural vegan scrub, you can guarantee that everything going into the product is good for you.
*Remember to test each product on your wrist before using it on your face, to make sure you aren’t allergic*
Here are two amazing natural vegan scrub recipes you can make using ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
