Take a look at any commercial face scrub and you’ll see a medley of chemicals listed as ingredients. I’m not sure exactly how bad all these chemicals are for the human body, but I do know that many of them are forbidden to children and pregnant woman. Any chemical that isn’t safe for a pregnant woman or child should probably be avoided by everyone.
Luckily for us, when it comes to keeping our skin clean and clear there are a number of natural alternatives. To make this simple face scrub, just mix ground cloves, honey and a few drops of lemon juice. Your skin will thank you.
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 1 tsp honey
- 3 drops lemon juice
- Mix ground cloves, honey and lemon juice in a small bowl.
- Apply mixture to face. Wait 20 minutes, then wash it off.
- Enjoy clean and clear skin without all the chemicals!
