Rumex Day Cream

Homemade Skin Lightening Scrub

Are you on the hunt for natural ways to get evenly toned, luminous, healthy looking skin? If the answer is yes, you have come to the right place! Today we’ll be making a very simple but super effective lightening facial scrub that will help not only people who struggle with melasma, sun-induced hyperpigmentation or age-related dark spots, but also those of you who simply want clearer complexion and radiant face. We promise this scrub/mask is easy to make, 100% chemical free and super effective! 


The Recipe

Since we believe that “simplicity is the key” today’s recipe includes 3 ingredients only (2 of which you can find in your kitchen).

10 ml Pure Organic Rosehip oil
1 tea spoon brown sugar
1 tbsp oats

When you have all ingredients mix them together in a small cup and stir with a wooden spoon/stick, until fully homogenized.

Note: Always make sure the natural plant oils you are buying are 100% Organic! This is the ultimate guarantee that their qualities are fully preserved! 


How To Use It

Start by applying a small amount of the scrub on your face and massage gently, with circular motions. Once you are done exfoliating, apply some more of the mixture, until your face is fully covered. Leave it for 15-30 minutes (enough time for you to lie back and relax with some nice music and a scented candle). Finally, rinse with lukewarm water and tap dry with a cotton towel.

Once you are done, don’t forget to apply your favorite moisturizer! … and if you want an extra dose of Vitamin C for even better skin brightening effects, I might have something for you…

The Benefits

Even though your epidermal cells shed on a daily basis, there are certain factors (age, increased sebum secretion, sun damage, etc.) that can slow down the natural process of cell shedding, making your skin look dull and flaky.

According to beauty gurus, one of the best ways to keep your skin healthy and luminous, and to say “adios” to uneven complexion, dry patches and clogged pores, is by inviting the almighty facial scrub into your beauty arsenal. By removing the dead cells from the skin surface, you stimulates cell turnover and you also allow the newly formed cells to show on the surface of your face, making it super smooth and bright!

And now, some more info about my all-time-favorite skin elixir and why we have chosen it to be the beauty hero in today’s recipe! Let me introduce you the Pure Organic Rosehip Oil!

The biggest advantage of Rosehip oil when compared to other natural plant oils is the high amount of  Vitamin C it contains. Aside from being a very powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C works as skin lightening agent, which with regular use, significantly improves skin’s clarity and diminished dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C also aids in the collagen synthesis and this way restores skin’s elasticity, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

Another reason why we worship Rosehip oil is because it is super rich in essential fatty acids (over 70%), beta carotene and other bio-active natural compounds that can do wonders for your skin. Rosehip oil’s ability to maintain the integrity of the hydro-lipid barrier of our skin (crucial for keeping it hydrated and protected from external damage) makes it a standout skin care hero!
