Thanks, Dasha.

I've always wondered why women spend so much money on commercial face scrubs when they are so easy to make at home.

Here is a link to a site that has reciipes for all sort of things. I have also copied their recipes for facial scrubs.

http://www.beautyfeast.com/Homemaderecipes/Facescrubs-normalskin.htm

Orange face scrub:
Ingredients:
Take two tablespoon of dried orange peel.

Take two teaspoon of oatmeal.

Two tablespoon of cold water.

Mix all the ingredients to get a paste and apply on the face.

When it dries up slightly remove it by scrubbing.

Finally wash off with lukewarm water. Rinse your face with cold water in the end
=========================

Oatmeal face scrub:
Ingredients:
One tablespoon of oatmeal
One teaspoon of almond oil.
Mix both the ingredients and apply it on face for fifteen minutes. Then remove it by scrubbing. Finally wash it off with lukewarm water.
================================

Barley face scrub:
Ingredients:
Take one teaspoon of barley powder.
One teaspoon of milk
Two teaspoon of lemon juice.
Mix all the ingredients till you get a smooth paste. Apply this on the face and leave it there for fifteen minutes. Remove by scrubbing. Then wash off with lukewarm water.

why do women worry about face 'exfoliating' at all?

talk about bending to a trend . Especially one that requires you spend your hard earned money on something, like Diane said.. you can make at home.
But it really isnt a necessary thing.

My mother used a soapy sponge as her makeup remover and a towel as an exfoliant. She was the most beautiful woman in her day, thus i follow her example. i don't know why people fall for every new stupid product.

Exfoliating is really good for the skin and there is evidence that removing dead skin cells prevents skin cancer. There is no reason to use the junk being peddled by Olay or Dove. As mentioned above, plenty of alternatives exist. I like Burt's Bees products and St. Ives, and the St. Ives is cheap.
