Exfoliation is one of the best kept secrets in making your skin beautiful. It removes dead skin cells, leaving the skin soft, silky, fresh, radiant and shiny. In other words, exfoliating from head to toe will get you glowing!


For the recipes below follow these steps:

  1. Tie hair back and wash face
  2. To open pores, steam face over hot water or press warm cloth to skin for a few minutes
  3. After preparing scrub, apply it to face (and neck if desired). Avoid eye area
  4. Gently massage into the skin in a circular motion for 30 seconds and leave on the skin for a few minutes
  5. Rinse off with warm water, moisturise if necessary, and enjoy results

1. Oatmeal Scrub

A stimulating, thoroughly cleansing 3-in-1 scrub! Smoothes, tones, and hydrates:

  • 1 tbsp rolled oats (ground) or almond meal
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp yogurt

Combine and apply. Optionally, let your scrub double as a mask by waiting a few minutes before scrubbing and rinsing.

2. Banana Scrub

A finely textured, delicious-smelling scrub, this can also double as a mask:

  • 2 tsp mashed banana
  • 2 tsp rolled oats (ground)
  • 1 tsp milk
  • 1 tsp honey

3. Honey Sugar Scrub

If you have ever used a body sugar scrub, you know just how amazing they are. This recipe works just as well on your face:

  • 1 tsp honey
  • ½ tsp sugar

Mix in bowl and apply. Rinse very thoroughly, as this recipe is very sticky.


You know, God also wants to polish and beautify the inner you because He sees something precious in you. He wants to remove the rough areas in your life so that you can shine for Him: [Jesus] gave Himself for us that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify for Himself a special people, zealous for good deeds. (Titus 2:14)

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us purify ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1)
