When most people see the ingredients of honey, milk, oats, and brown sugar; they may assume that you're preparing a hearty breakfast meal. But this lovely recipe is in fact a fantastic facial and body wash! During the cooler winter months, our skin can become parched and in desperate need of moisture. With using these fantastic household ingredients, you can get your skin into tip top shape while giving it the soothing ingredients it deserves. It's also gentle enough to be used daily or every other day depending on personal preferences.

What you'll need:

  • Organic/raw form honey (can best be found at local health food stores)
  • Buttermilk (or milk that is fattier)
  • Oats (such as plain Quaker oats for instant oatmeal)
  • Brown sugar (can be organic or plain)
  • Small mixing dish

Using your small mixing dish, drizzle a spoonful of honey into the bowl. Crush a spoonful of oats in separate bowl until they turn into a loose powder. After adding a spoonful of the oats, combine 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1/3 of a cup of milk. Now depending on what your skin needs, measurements don't have to be exact. If you prefer a scrub that has a thicker consistency use less milk and add more honey sugar. If you prefer something that is runnier, add more milk and less sugar. Also remember before covering yourself in said scrub, be sure to do a patch test on your skin a day or two earlier. This is always a great way to see how your skin will react to any new product you try, and an easy way to see if you could possibly be allergic. If you pass the patch test, you are now ready to use this new scrub! This scrub is best used with the heat of a warm shower or bath. After relaxing to your favorite tunes (or however you unwind before getting cleaned up), wet face and body with warm water. Once your body is warmed up, step away from the water and apply the scrub. Gently massage into dry problem areas and rub over tension ridden spots on face. After a few minutes (or however long you'd like to take), use warm water and wash clothe to remove excess. Do keep in mind that this scrub can get a bit messy, so be weary that all of the excess scrub makes it down the drain. After all is said and done, finish your shower and lather your skin in your favorite moisturizer. And voila! And fantastic new scrub to brighten and soften your skin during transitional periods for new seasons!
