DIY Facial Scrub for Sensitive Skin

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):
