DIY facial scrubs are tricky. The problem with most scrubs is that they are too abrasive, causes excessive scratching of your skin. Jojoba pearls are rounded and allow the scrub to be exfoliating without the abrasiveness of sugars. For this scrub I provide two options for the exfoliant. I like using cornmeal when I don’t have jojoba pearls. Castor oil has a very low comedogenic rating so it is less like to clog your pores and contribute to blackheads and break outs. The addition of a little of that helps to provide a little moisture while you are exfoliating. Honey is amazing for its cleansing abilities. I love it in my sore throat remedy too.
