This foaming ginger & turmeric face polish recipe is wonderful for maturing skin and is crafted with a blend of natural carrier & essential oils prized for their antioxidant and anti-aging properties.

To create my foaming ginger & turmeric face polish I combined a blend of natural carrier oils prized for both their anti-aging and non-comedogenic properties with a foaming bath whip base for gentle cleansing. I then added ginger and turmeric essential oils and whipped in sugar for gentle exfoliation.

The result is a wonderful ginger & turmeric face polish that not only cleanses and exfoliates skin, but can also help to deter the signs of aging and reduce the appearance of both age spots and hypopigmented scars.

Ingredients:

2 oz. (57 grams) Crafter’s Choice foaming bath whip (or similar)
.1 oz. (3 grams) hemp seed oil
.1 oz. (3 grams) rosehip seed oil
.05 oz. (1.5 grams) sea buckthorn oil
.1 oz. (3 grams) kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
9 oz. (255 grams) white sugar
14 drops turmeric essential oil
16 drops fresh ginger essential oil

Instructions:

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the foaming bath whip base.

This foaming ginger & turmeric face polish recipe is wonderful for maturing skin and is crafted with a blend of natural carrier & essential oils prized for their antioxidant and anti-aging properties.

Now weigh out the hemp, rosehip seed and sea buckthorn oils and mix into the foaming bath whip with a spatula.

Add the essential oils then mix again. (If desired, you can also add an antioxidant like vitamin E oil or a rosemary antioxidant (extract) to help extend the shelf life of the carrier oils used.)

In a separate container weigh out the sugar and kaolin clay. Mix to combine. (If your skin tends to be particularly acne prone, you can substitute the kaolin clay with bentonite clay. Alternately Rhassoul clay and French green clay are also wonderful substitutions for maturing skin.)

Now slowly pour the sugar and clay mixture into the foaming bath whip base and oils. Mix with a hand blender adding more sugar/clay as the foaming ginger & turmeric face polish comes together.

Once you’ve added all the sugar and clay to the product, mix on high for several minutes.

Now spoon your face polish into a container (or containers) of your choice. This foaming ginger & turmeric face polish recipe will fill one 8 oz. container.

The containers pictured are an 8 oz. amber PET heavy wall plastic jar with a lined aluminum cap and a 2 oz. straight sided amber glass jar with black phenolic lined cap. I got both from SKS Bottle & Packaging.

Now simply label your foaming ginger & turmeric face polish as desired for personal use or gifting.

If you like my labels, you can download the PDF for these labels here and print your own onto full size white label sheets! (I got my labels from WorldLabel.)

To use, remove desired amount from jar then gently massage onto damp skin. Rinse, then follow with a toner and moisturizer.

Exfoliating Microdermabrasion Scrub Recipe for Acne Prone and Combination Skin

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.



Check out this AMAZING DIY beauty hack for making your own exfoliating microdermabrasion scrub recipe for acne prone and combination skin! It contains just TWO ingredients to save you money over expensive commercial options and it doubles as an anti-acne face mask!

Ever wanted to make your own microdermabrasion scrub recipe but without potentially skin irritating baking soda? Then you need to check out this amazing DIY beauty hack for making your own exfoliating microdermabrasion scrub recipe for acne prone and combination skin! This simple and all natural microdermabrasion scrub recipe contains just TWO ingredients to help you save money over expensive commercial options. Plus it doubles as an anti-acne face mask!

I received a sample of dr. brandt® microdermabrasion skin exfoliant in my Birchbox this past October to try. I really liked it but the retail price on this product is $79 for 2 oz. and terribly out of my price range. So I kind of nixed the idea of microdermabrasion for a while. Then, during a rather pesky routine hormone induced break out, I decided to experiment with the Rocky Mountain Essentials Tuxedo Teeth Whitener and Detoxifier that I had in my bathroom closet.

This all natural, organic teeth whitener contains only coconut shell charcoal, calcium bentonite clay, organic mint and organic orange peel. Activated charcoal, of course, is known for it's detoxifying properties and is a common ingredient in anti-acne masks along with bentonite clay so it can double as an anti-acne face mask!

This all natural, organic teeth whitener contains only coconut shell activated charcoal, calcium bentonite clay, organic mint and organic orange peel. Activated charcoal, of course, is known for it’s detoxifying properties and is a common ingredient in anti-acne masks along with bentonite clay. I figured it’d be perfect as a face mask.

So, while in the shower the other day, I put a small amount of the Tuxedo Teeth Whitener and Detoxifier in the palm of my hand and added just enough water to make a paste. Then I massaged it onto my face in a circular motion. To both my surprise and my delight the paste felt exactly like a microdermabrasion product! So not only was I able to exfoliate my skin, I was also able to leave the product on my face as a mask for 5-10 minutes to help relieve my acne break out. It was as easy as that.

If, however, you’d like something a little more substantial than water to mix with the tooth powder, you can also mix it with skin friendly anti-aging oils like jojoba, rosehip seed or argan oil. Another good option would be to mix it with soothing (cooled) chamomile tea or aloe vera juice. Then simply use once or twice a week as needed to maintain skin.

If you prefer to premix your microdermabrasion scrub, here’s a simple recipe to get you started. (If you prefer to use aloe vera juice, water, milk or even yogurt don’t pre-mix your microdermabrasion scrub as water based ingredients can lead to bacteria and mold formation.)

Exfoliating Microdermabrasion Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.1 oz. Rocky Mountain Essentials Tuxedo Teeth Whitener + Detoxifier
.85 oz. jojoba, rosehip seed or argan oil

Instructions:

I weighed out the ingredients using a digital scale. However, you don’t have to weigh the ingredients out. If you don’t have a scale simply add a small amount of oil to the teeth whitener powder until it forms a paste. Otherwise, weigh out the ingredients and mix together. Be sure to use a non-metal utensil and bowl to mix the microdermabrasion scrub recipe as metal deactivates the properties of the bentonite clay (an ingredient in the Tuxedo teeth whitener.).

If desired, you can also mix in up to 12 drops of your favorite essential oil(s) into your microdermabrasion scrub. You can also substitute part of the carrier oil in this recipe with neem oil. In which case I’d recommend using essential oils – a lavender and tea tree essential oil combo would work great for this! – to hide the smell of the neem oil. Neem oil has been known to help to relieve acne, psoriasis, eczema, dry skin, dandruff, skin ulcers, warts, and other skin conditions when applied either directly or into soaps, lotions, and creams.

Once you’ve mixed up your face scrub, refill your empty jar of Tuxedo teeth whitener and detoxifier with the microdermabrasion scrub. Alternately you can also use a 2 oz. glass salve jar.

You’re new microdermabrasion face scrub is now ready to use!

To use your scrub, simply apply a quarter sized amount to your wet face and massage in a circular motion avoiding your eye area. If desired, leave on skin for 5-10 minutes afterward to use as a mask. Finally, rinse the scrub off completely using warm water and pat dry. Be sure to then follow with your favorite moisturizer or anti-wrinkle face serum.

Created as a dupe to the clariSEA Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask, this activated charcoal detox mask recipe draws out impurities, clears up blackheads and removes excess oil for reduced breakouts and faster healing times.

Orange & Chamomile Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser Recipe

Inspired by Suki's Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, my exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe gently exfoliates your face with natural sugar while also helping to purify pores, remove dry skin, even skin tone and smooth and soften your complexion.

Inspired by Suki’s Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, my orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe gently exfoliates your face with natural sugar while also helping to purify pores, remove dry skin, even skin tone and smooth and soften your complexion.

This all natural foaming facial cleanser lathers as you massage it onto damp or wet skin to wash away excess dirt and makeup, while sweet almond oil – a mild, hypoallergenic oil – helps to protect skin against UV radiation damage as well as aid in keeping skin soft and supple.

Sweet almond oil is especially suited for sensitive skin and is easily absorbed by skin. Due to its high vitamin A content, it can also help to prevent acne. In addition it aids in relieving inflammation, itchiness and redness that may be caused by eczema or psoriasis. (If you suffer from eczema or psoriasis, be sure to also check out my homemade pine tar soap recipe.)

Blood orange essential oil is also wonderful for helping to reduce skin inflammation as well as flushing out toxins, while chamomile has also long been praised for its anti-inflammatory properties in skin care.

Ingredients:

7 oz. white granulated sugar
.8 oz. Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild Unscented Hemp Liquid Castile Soap
.25 oz. sweet almond oil
.05 oz. castor oil
1 Tablespoon chamomile flowers, ground or chamomile flower powder
1 mL blood orange essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the liquid Castile soap, sweet almond oil and castor oil into a glass container.

Using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out the blood orange essential oil and add to the soap and oil mixture.

How to make an exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe for your face!

Whisk well to combine thoroughly. The mixture will kind of resemble scrambled eggs with a bit of butter. (Weird, right?)

Weigh out the sugar into a separate container.

Then measure out the ground chamomile flowers using a measuring spoon and whisk into the sugar.

Slowly pour the sugar and chamomile flower mixture into the container with the liquid mixture, stirring as you go.

Continue mixing until all of the ingredients for your exfoliating foaming cleanser are thoroughly combined.

Inspired by Suki's Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, my orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe gently exfoliates your face with natural sugar while also helping to purify pores, remove dry skin, even skin tone and smooth and soften your complexion.

Now spoon your orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser into two 4 oz. glass salve jars. I used the glass jars from Container and Packaging for this project. Screw on the lids of your choice, then label as desired for personal use or gifting.

If you are making this exfoliating foaming cleanser to sell, you’ll need to label appropriately to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale. You may also want to consider a natural preservative.

To use your orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser, simply scoop out the desired amount then massage onto your wet face in circular motion. Rinse, then pat dry and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.

This homemade coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil is inspired by the Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub. Scented with a fresh blend of orange, coconut and cardamom, my coffee scrub recipe contains naturally emollient sweet almond oil, mineral rich pink Himalayan salt, anti-inflammatory blood orange essential oil, brown sugar, and ground coffee to exfoliate, smooth and brighten dull, aging or acne prone skin.

Sea Salt Face and Body Scrub Recipe

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.



This sea salt face and body scrub recipe is loosely inspired by Lush's Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub. Made using fine dead sea salt, this emulsified sea salt face and body scrub recipe has a creamy texture and is gentle enough for sensitive skin.

This sea salt face and body scrub recipe is loosely inspired by Lush’s Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub. Made using fine dead sea salt, this emulsified sea salt face and body scrub recipe has a creamy texture and is gentle enough for even sensitive skin. Ingredients like mango butter, fractionated coconut oil and lanolin help to condition and protect skin while dead sea salt lends its natural healing properties. Want to make it vegan? Try substituting the lanolin – which is found in Lush’s Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub – with cupuacu butter.

I left my sea salt face and body scrub recipe unscented. The final product doesn’t really have any kind of scent to it, however, so you can easily scent your face and body scrub if desired. To scent your product I recommend using .05 oz. – .1 oz. of fragrance oil or half that amount if using essential oils.

As a bonus I’ve included free printable labels for your finished face and body scrubs. You can find the PDF printable labels following the sea salt face and body scrub recipe below.

Why fractionated coconut oil?

Lush’s Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub contains virgin coconut oil. I decided instead to use fractionated coconut oil for my sea salt face and body scrub recipe. Fractionated coconut oil is generally better for use in skin care products as it’s less comedogenic (ie. less likely to clog pores.) Fractionated coconut oil also has a higher concentration of Capric and Caprylic acids which make it a better antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and disinfectant than virgin coconut oil.

Sea Salt Face and Body Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. mango butter
.5 oz. emulsifying wax
.1 oz. stearic acid
.15 oz. lanolin
1.5 oz. fractionated coconut oil
1 oz. safflower oil
1/2 teaspoon citric acid, optional
9.5 oz. fine dead sea salt
pinch neon bikini blue powder, optional colorant

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the emulsifying wax and stearic acid. Heat the ingredients in a glass Pyrex measuring cup at 50% power in the microwave or in a double boiler until melted.

Now weigh out the mango butter and add to the melted emulsifying wax and stearic acid. Heat again until the mango butter has melted. Remove from heat.

Next, weigh out the lanolin and stir into the melted ingredients until the lanolin melts completely.

Weigh out the fractionated coconut oil and the safflower oil. Stir into the melted scrub base. If using a fragrance in your sea salt face and body scrub recipe, you would weigh out and stir the fragrance in at this point.

Now weigh out the dead sea salt into a separate 4 cup glass Pyrex measuring cup or glass bowl. Measure out the citric acid and whisk into the dead sea salt with a fork. (Citric acid is used in skin care products to brighten skin, shrink pores, treat mild acne, and correct dark spots and fine lines as well as to slough off dead skin cells and speed new cell turnover.) You can use more or less citric acid dependent upon your skin care needs, or omit it entirely. If using a colorant, you would add the color at this point and whisk into the salt as well.

Now pour the melted wet face and body scrub ingredients into the dry dead sea salt mixture and whisk until thoroughly combined.

Mix the sea salt face and body scrub until it starts to thicken then spoon into clean containers.

My sea salt face and body scrub recipe will yield three 4 oz. mason jelly jars or glass salve jars. (Alternately, you can double this sea salt face and body scrub recipe to fill two 8 oz. containers.)

It is recommend that once you start using this product, you use it until it’s finished. Otherwise, if you don’t plan to use the entire sea salt face and body scrub once opened, or if you are selling this product, it is highly recommended that you include a natural, paraben free preservative such as Optiphen Plus.
