I hate, hate, HATE when my skin freaks out on me! I also have a hard time figuring out what my exact skin type is. Sometimes it’s oily, sometimes it’s dry, most of the time it’s combo, but overall, it’s just straight-up moody! One thing I do know is that the best way to prevent breakouts or excessive dryness is to stick to beauty recipes designed for peeps with sensitive skin. Here’s a recipe for a gentle, sensitive skin exfoliator that’ll help give you beautiful, healthy, glowing skin (sans any irritation or funky skin reactions):
Facial Scrub for Sensitive Skin
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup soy, almond, or rice milk
2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Few drops tea tree oil
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
- Apply to your skin in a circular motion as a scrub or lather on as a mask for 10 minutes before rinsing.
