Homemade Natural Scrubs & Facial Masks
Are you looking for a simple, natural and cost effective facial scrub or mask? You can whip up one in minutes using ingredients found around your kitchen. Different skin types have different needs so, be sure to know your type.
A Quick Rundown of the Basic Types
Dry – Your skin tends to feel dry, flaky, and tight, Easily Irritated
Sensitive – Your skin tends to be dry & tight. Your skin is very sensitive to many products and easily irritated. Skin becomes itchy or redness occurs when certain products are applied to the skin.
Combination – Your face is a mix of dry skin on cheeks and oily on nose & forehead
Oily/Acne Prone – Greasy, Problem areas most likely your “T” zone (cheeks, nose, and forehead) break out easily, enlarged pores
Normal – Your one of the lucky ones that can have good looking skin with even minimum care
Moving onto the fun stuff. Basic things like eggs, sugar, salt, oatmeal even aspirin can help remove dead skin and reveal soft & smooth glowing skin.

Homemade Cat Litter Mask
Yes you read the correct & you might have recently heard about Snookie from Jersey Shore using cat litter as a facial mask. The little tip comes from Diane Irons a beauty expert who claims it is made from the same ingredients found in the $100 clay facials at spas. Now when shopping for cat litter for your face (wow it’s weird writing that or even thinking about ) make sure you read the label . You will be looking for one that is “sodium betonite clay” or “100 percent natural clay.”
- Cat litter (make sure you get the right one)
- Essential oil (optional)
- Take a couple spoon full of cat litter and mix with water
- You can add essential oil if you like, but it’s not a must
- Apply to face & leave it on for about 15 minutes
