Dry Skin problems??? All creams, serums and faces masks just don't seem to cut it? Well here is something that you might not have tried, and what is wonderful about this face scrub is that anyone can just whip it up in their kitchen in no time.

This home made scrub has been around for a very long time.

All you need is:

2 or 3 Tablespoons - Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( It needs to be extra virgin)
1/2 cup                 - Sugar ( not artificial sweeteners) 
2 Tablespoons       - Honey (not maple syrup)
1                         - Mixing Stick
1                         - Small Container w/Lid


 Add 2 or 3 tbsp of olive oil

add 2 tbsp of honey 

add 1/2 of sugar 

mix everything together

Put the extra virgin olive oil, honey and sugar into the container, then mix together. 

This is the finished product.

How to apply:

First ensure your face is clean and makeup free. 

Use a spatula and get a small amount, about the size of the tip of your pinky should be enough for your entire face, and scrub into your face for 60 seconds, then rinse off.

You should instantly feel your face feel smooth and moisturized.

If you feel you need more moisture, continue and apply your moisturizer. 


Do not store this scrub in the fridge, because the mixture will harden up and become hard to use.
You can store it in your pantry, with the lid tightly closed to prevent ants from getting into it. It should not go bad for at least a month.

Fun Facts:
-      Olive Oil does not clog up your pores, although it does contain vitamin E, which you will find in a lot of your creams and serums, this is what keeps our looking healthy and moisturized. What’s also wonderful about olive oil is that if you ever run out of makeup remover, olive oil is another great option.

Personal Opinion:

I discovered this scrub watching one of my favorite makeup guru's Michelle Phan on youtube.
I have tried this scrub. The inital smell of this scrub is not pleasant. But once applied you can not smell it any more. After finishing applying and rinsing off, I feel my skin instantly smooth and clear from any flaking and dry skin. 

I really suggest if you can't find something to assist your dry skin problems in 
creams and serums, or you just want to save some money. This is definitely a great alternative.

Keep Aspiring!!!


  1. woah! haven't visited your blog in a while... i think we've all been busy ^^

    how are you??? :D

    oh yeah! i love this olive oil scrub... my aunts and i use this every weekend -- if not every other day :P
    i love michelle phan too! :D hahaha

  2. What if my problem is oily face? Will this help? I heard avocado is generally good in restoring the balance of your facial skin.

  3. @ rossacne - im not sure how it will work on a oily face. But yeah I have also heard about avacado with helping with skin balance. I am planning to try it out the next chance I get.
