Bye-Bye Blackheads

While at a friend’s house, we had an evening of beauty recipe making. One that we were both interested in was the Bye-Bye Blackheads Scrub from EcoBeauty by Lauren Cox. The best part was that the few ingredients required were all common household ingredients. It is nice and simple to make anytime.

Bye-Bye Blackheads Scrub

1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp baking soda
2 tbsp water

Add water and mix.

Add baking soda

and sugar.

Add water and mix.

To use, massage mixture onto wet skin. Allow to sit for a few minutes. Rinse with warm water, and pat face dry.

The texture of this scrub was nice, much smoother than many are. My face felt more soft and smooth than prior to the scrub, and I found it did help with the few blackheads I had on my chin. My only issue was that after rinsing, my face was red and felt tender. I think this is probably due to my sensitive skin, but I was still surprised since the scrub only contains a few simple ingredients. Also, my friend found that her skin was dry afterward, though she is prone to dry skin. This is something I would do again when necessary, but not often.
