Ready to smooth & brighten your skin?? Here’s our DIY Facial Scrub that will easily get you there!
The skin needs to be exfoliated to stay healthy and youthful. This DIY Natural Facial Scrub is wonderful to smooth & brighten the skin and keep it soft and smooth.
The recipe just takes about a minute to put together and use and is so gentle it can be used weekly. That should be easy to remember as soon as your skin gets rough, dry and acne laden – that’s what tends to happen when you wait too long. So our goal is to help you try this out, feel how nice your fresh skin feels, and keep you using it regularly.
I’ll tell you an awesome secret about this recipe. If you want to make it super anti-aging, add a teaspoon of greens. We have 3 different types we’ve listed below, but there are more. They are so power loaded with anti-oxidants and will do a world of good. We may do a post to explain why we are so focused on phytonutrients anyway, but here’s a quick example. Most commercial foods boast of being fortified with a handful of nutrients, but an apple contains over 125 phytonutrients. Each teaspoon of the organic dry food blends contains up to 1700+ phytonutrients.Which is huge, and applying these onto our skin is extremely nourishing to the skin.
Science has also finally figured out that pre and probiotics are also good for the skin, and you’ll be seeing more products pop up that will be including them. But we’ve amped this recipe up with those as well because we know the healing power and nourishment they provide to the skin, plus we know enough about formulations to be able to say that when a product declares that it has added probiotics, you can know that it is unlikely to contain as much as 1%. With this recipe we’ve added much more, and you can amp that up more still, if you wish.
Get ready for a treat that your skin is about to fall in love with!
DIY Facial Scrub Recipe
- 1/3 cup oil (see what’s the best choice for your skin type here)
- 1 tablespoon almond meal
- 1 teaspoon Mighty Maca or Vega Greens or Amazing Grass Green Superfood powder

Mix ingredients together in a small blender jar. Pour into a covered container and use right away. Refrigerate after using. Use once weekly.
And oh, btw, if you don’t have almond meal, you can find it online, but it’s also easy to make. And another really exciting btw….if you like almond milk, you can make it yourself too. Here’s an Almond Milk video we did that shows you how simple it is and then you can use the pulp left over for your almond meal scrub. Pretty cool, huh?! We think so (obviously, lol)

oh and ps…. almonds have been connected with lowering cholestorol, lowering blood sugar, aiding weight loss, fighting cancer…and a great source of protein, fiber AND omega 3 fatty acids. It might not be a bad idea to eat some of those raw almonds while you’re at it 🙂
