A wonderful natural facial scrub to use when my skin is extremely dry, sensitive, and flaky is the Queen Helene Oatmeal 'n Honey Natural Facial Scrub. I find this natural facial scrub is very exfoliating and moisturizing to my sensitive skin without causing it to breakout with a red rash.The Queen Helen Oatmeal 'n Honey Natural Facial Scrub is made with natural ingredients that I love myself such as honey, oatmeal, glycerin, coconut oil, and walnut shell powder. These natural ingredients are what help exfoliate my dry skin while moisturizing it and making it healthy and bright again. They also help minimize the appearances of fine lines, scars, age spots, and blemishes.
The way I like to use the Queen Helen Oatmeal 'n Honey Natural Facial Scrub is by first soaking my face with warm water to help soften my skin and open up my pores. Than I like to take a quarter size amount of the facial scrub and lather it into my face in skin in a circular motion for a minute or two to really help exfoliate the dead skin, moisturize the new skin underneath the dead skin, and to help remove any blackheads, oils, make ups, and dirt left behind on my skin. After I simply rinse of the natural facial scrub, pat my skin dry, and allow it to breathe before I apply a cream or makeup.
The way I like to use this natural facial scrub as a mask is by first washing my face down with tons of warm water to open up my pores. Than I like to take my fingertips and squeeze out as much of the facial scrub as I need and apply a nice thick even layer to my skin, and than I like to allow the mask to stay on for 20 minutes. The reason why is because I like to allow the nourishing and moisturizing ingredients to sink deep inside my skin to help soften the dead skin so it can be removed from my face, and moisturize the new skin so it can look and feel healthy. After I simply rinse my face off with warm water, pat it dry, and allow my face and skin to breathe. I think the best time to do this mask is right before bedtime.
Now if you do decide to give the Queen Helen Natural Facial Scrub a try you will notice it has a really sweet oatmeal scent to it, and the scrub itself is really thick and gritty, but really rich and soothing once you use it. I wouldn't recommend this natural facial scrub if your allergic to nuts or of any other kind of allergy to the ingredients inside this facial care product. I wouldn't even recommend this facial scrub to people with oily skin either because it will cause your skin to breakout more. The type of skin types I would recommend this facial scrub to are people with dry skin, combination skin, and normal skin because that is what I feel this skin care product works best on.
The only store I seem to be able to find the Queen Helen Oatmeal 'n Honey Natural Facial Scrub at is Vitacost.com online. One 2 fluid ounce bottle of this natural scrub cost only $3 which is a bargain these days I think for an excellent skin care product that is natural and will get your skin exfoliated with nourishing natural ingredients. I wish you all a the best of luck with exfoliating and moisturizing your skin!
