mothertonque Exfoliating your skin once or twice a week is the best way to improve your skin tone. Scrubs unclog pores, promote a speedy turnover of skin cells, balance your body’s oil production, and rid your pores of toxins and dirt to create a fresh overall look and feel. Scrubs are very easy to make at home – once you have all of the ingredients prepared and measured, the process only takes a few minutes.

burger being one of her most successful recipies. Beauty guru and skin specialist Caroline Hirons recommends her favourite products and advises the do’s and dont’s in all things skincare. Plus he lets us into a homemade DIY beauty scrub secret.

CHAI MASALA SCRUB DRY

The best place to use a scrub is in the shower. After an initial rinse, scoop out a handful of scrub and massage it onto wet skin. You might step out of the water stream as you do this to keep the scrub from dissolving as you spread it over your entire body. Rinse the scrub off thoroughly and pat your skin dry when you exit the shower. This recipe uses organic demerara cane sugar as the main exfoliating ingredient (which means that you can nibble a little in the shower and it’ll be tasty). If you are a savory person, you could use sea salt in place of the sugar, the main difference being that sugar is better for sensitive skin. Directions: Grind the black tea leaves to a powder. If you don’t have a coffee grinder or a mortar and pestle, put the tea leaves in a sandwich bag or tea towel and roll with a rolling pin or lightly hit with a hammer to grind the leaves up. Cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg can be bought already ground (easiest method) or you can use a grater to grate them. In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients and vanilla thoroughly. Pour the oil over the ingredients and mix to combine.
