getting radiant skin

April 6th, 2012

One thing I hear from a lot of you guys, particularly those of you with sensitive skin, is that you’re looking for beauty routines that incorporate natural, gentle ingredients — and so I have a great one for you!

For me, one of the best ways to get glowing, radiant skin is to use an exfoliating scrub.  Scrubs are key to keeping skin looking fresh and removing dead skin cells to look your best!  One of my personal favorites is the Simple Skincare Smoothing Facial Scrub — it’s amazing for making your skin brighter and more evenly textured.

In addition to Simple’s amazing facial scrub, there are some fun at-home concoctions you can whip up too.  Today I thought I’d share a DIY facial scrub that combines some powerhouse kitchen ingredients with Simple Skincare’s really fabulous (and affordable) sensitive skin moisturizer, for a beauty routine that will leave you glowing!

The key to exfoliation is using ingredients that will take off any lingering dead skin cells, but that won’t damage the rest of your skin.  The lip scrub that I use is too harsh for my face, so I swapped out sugar in the raw for oatmeal and baking soda as the exfoliants.  I used Simple Skincare Replenishing Rich Moisturizer to bind everything together, and to add an extra boost of hydration (12 hours of moisturization!) and nourishment for my skin.  (One of the major bonuses to using drugstore products — it doesn’t cost you $20 to mix a little of your moisturizer into a DIY beauty treatment!)

Follow up this mask with your regular facial skincare products, like Simple Skincare’s Soothing Facial Toner, which is incredibly gentle and leaves your skin clean and refreshed.  Add another layer of Simple Skincare Rich Replenishing Moisturizer, and let it sink in overnight.  In the morning, your skin will feel great!

DIY Oatmeal Scrub

2 tbsp oatmeal
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp Simple Skincare Replenishing Rich Moisturizer


Blend all ingredients together, and apply to face.  Leave on for ten minutes, then wash off.  Follow with toner and more moisturizer overnight.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your website.

    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly
    in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be
    on the internet the simplest thing to be aware
    of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
    consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined
    out the whole thing without having side effect , people
    can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
