Make your own Pecan facial scrub at home

Have you ever tried to make your own facial scrub? You can and it is easy, using some great ingredients like Pecans. I love eating Pecans - they are packed full of the 'good' fats - monounsaturated, polyunsaturated and omega-3, they have a higher antioxidant capacity than any other nut and eating a handful of Pecans a day provides you with 19 vitamins and minerals.

I found it interesting to know that I can make my own Pecan facial scrub, so I was excited to try it out when I was sent the ingredients.

You can now make a simple Pecan facial scrub using three ingredients:

2 tablespoons of avocado
1 tablespoon of ground pecans
1 tablespoon of honey
1. Mix the honey and avocado together.
2. Add the ground pecans into the honey and avocado and mix together.
3. To apply facial scrub, gently massage mixture on your face in a circular motion, avoiding eyes.

When mixed really well, the ingredients become a well mixed smooth mixture. When I applied this to my face, gently applying it in circular motions it felt nice and when I washed it off my skin, my skin felt smooth and clean. A great homemade facial scrub!

I have one Pecan Facial scrub kit which includes a packet of pecans, mortar and pestle, a avocado and jar of honey. (CLOSED)

How yummy does that look?
I bet it would be terrific for your skin too. Thanks for sharing.
I just made a facial wash with olive oil which is pretty fun too.

I've never tried to make my own scrub, but it looks like a lot of fun!
My current favourite facial exfoliator is Soap & Glory's Scrub Your Nose In It. I got it at a Sephora in Singapore (a lot cheaper than here I imagine) and it's really good!

My favourite facial product at the moment is a facial mask I make using yoghurt, berries and honey. It is fantastic, cheap and natural!

this looks yummy! i'll probably eat it before putting on my face! :p

my current fav skin care is silk naturals intensive moisturizer. it's not heavy but good enough to feed my dry skin.

I'm using Enzoskin's coffee and cream moisturiser at the moment and it is amazing! :) It smells so good going on, I don't even like to drink coffee but it smells delicious. You can customise it with ingredients that suit your skin type/conditions and it really makes my skin smooth and soft, can't recommend it enough. :)
