Rave ‘n’ Crave Wednesday:  Homemade Face and Body Scrub

I do not wear makeup. After 20 years of performing musical theatre, I’d like to think that I have worn my fair share of it. I do, however, love good skin products. Anything that makes my skin feel soft and moisturized without too many chemicals gets a rave review from me!

I was introduced to Sprout’s Exfoliating Scrub in PopSugar’s August Must Have Box. It was this little jar of ground up almonds, oats, and sea salt. After using it once, I immediately became a fan. Unfortunately, it came in a small jar and it wasn’t enough of an exfoliator for me.

My mother suggested adding cornmeal. Once the little Sprout jar was empty, I took out my food processor and went to work. I combined almonds, oats, sea salt, and cornmeal until it was very fine. I then poured it into two plastic containers (no glass in the shower!).

After using it on my face and as a full body scrub, I don’t think I’ll ever buy a facial or body scrub again. I’ve used St. Ives exfoliating scrub since I was in high school and I like this one so much better. Since I’ve started using it, my skin is clearer and I even got a compliment on my complexion. This scrub is my new standby!

Use it, love it, and rave about it!
