If you’re looking for brighter, clearer skin, my DIY natural exfoliate and detox skin polish may just be the answer to your skin care woes. This dry face polish is crafted from all dry ingredients for a long shelf life and to enable you to customize it with every use. Sugar, activated charcoal, bentonite clay, coconut milk powder, and powdered botanicals gently exfoliate skin and help to draw out impurities.
Exfoliate and Detox Skin Polish Recipe
3 Tablespoons white sugar
1 Tablespoon activated charcoal
1 Tablespoon bentonite clay
1 teaspoon lavender flower powder
1 teaspoon calendula flower powder
1 teaspoon walnut shell powder
1 teaspoon coconut milk powder
1/2 teaspoon carrot powder
Measure out all ingredients using spoon measurements.
Combine ingredients in a bowl or glass measuring cup and whisk with a fork until thoroughly incorporated. Pour mixture into a 4 oz. tin or other container of choice to store until use.
To use, simply mix 1/2 teaspoon of this dry skin polish with 1/2 teaspoon of the liquid of your choice based on skin’s needs and gentle massage onto damp skin in a circular motion for about a minute, then rinse and follow with your favorite toner. You can mix this with milk, honey, water, rosewater or even your favorite carrier oil depending on your skin’s mood! (Personally I have very moody skin. Hormones tend to make it rather persnickety as does stress.)
