Oatmeal Honey Face Scrub

Oatmeal honey scrub-colorOatmeal Honey Face Scrub – Every now and again I feel like my face just needs a deep scrub when my daily cleanser alone can’t quite get the job done.  One of my favorite homemade facial scrub recipes is so simple but OH SO GOOD!  There are only 3 ingredients and you may already have them: oatmeal, honey and almond oil (or coconut oil or olive oil). These ingredients have wonderful healing qualities. Oatmeal is full of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds and is known for its skin-soothing properties including moisturizing dry skin, providing relief from itching, rashes and other minor skin irritations. Honey provides natural antibacterial and healing properties to soothe and clarify the skin. Almond oil is very light and not greasy at all. It cleans skin pores and helps moisturize and nourish it – and it’s especially great of acne prone skin.

I usually put the scrub on my face, give a quick rub around to make sure it’s covering everything, leave on for 4-5 minutes and then give one last good scrub before I wash it off. Your face will feel so amazing after you’ll want to do this everyday. This scrub is particularly great during the cold winter months when skin tends to get dry and irritated.

Oatmeal Honey Scrub Recipe:

  • Two parts oatmeal (ground up finely in a blender or food processor)
  • One part honey
  • One part sweet almond oil (or coconut or olive oil – which ever you prefer)

Mix everything together until it’s a thick sticky mixture. Feel free to add a little extra oil or even a few drops of water if it’s too sticky or clumpy. Smooth onto face and rub into skin for a couple of minutes and then rinse off.

Printable robot coloring page – Over the past week or so I’ve been on holidays and I’ve had the good fortune to spend that time relaxing at the beach.  For so long I’ve been waiting for some spare time to spend sketching and doodling. I started with nature sketches of all the treasures I found while beach scavenging. The drawings turned out beautifully and I really enjoyed the challenge.  My daughter saw me working on my sketches and asked that I draw something for her but something that was “fun like the blank faces coloring page” – definitely my most popular post to date.  My nephews were also out visiting at the beach and I was inspired by the boys so I thought I could make something they would all have fun coloring.  I sketched out a variety of robots and then let the kids pick out their favourites. Here are the 12 robot finalist for your coloring pleasure.  Enjoy!
