DIY Exfoliator

I wish I had time for a super-great facial. I always choose massage and exercise as my go-to indulgences. So, I came up with my own DIY version that can be really easily customized to fit your skin care needs and time constraints. I call it the “Cleansing Scrub.”

Some women favor chemical exfoliants like glycolic and salicylic acid, which work fine. Personally, I like to use a manual exfoliant, though I don’t love exfoliating beads as they’re not great for the environment. Buffing Grains—made from Japanese Adzuki beans—are natural and super-gentle, but leave your skin soft, smooth and glowing. I like to mix Buffing Grains in with Extra Bright Advanced Foaming Cleanser for a really luxurious exfoliant. It’s great because the Buffing Grains allow you to turn any daily cleanser into an exfoliator—I find that when I buy a separate exfoliating cleanser, I’m tempted to over use it. But making my own combination makes exfoliating feel like a special, twice a week spa treatment.

What weekly rituals make you feel pampered?

  1. That sounds like a great idea. I have always stayed away from exfoliating even though I know it is good for the skin because my skin is so dry. Is the foaming cleanser good for very dry skin?

  3. Love the BUFFING GRAINS, but not the packaging. Any way to make the container not glass and/or an easier way to pour only a small amount in my hand at a time?
