So I’m trying to get a face routine started, so my skin is 100% the day of the wedding. I’m in need of a good exfoliating scrub! My skin is dry, so I gotta get this under control! Bonus if it’s natural and not tested on animals etc.!Brittany, a bride-to-be

Hi Brittany, try this homemade scrub:
Yogurt, smashed blueberries, brown sugar, honey. Make a mixture. Do not put in a blender! Apply on clean face, rub in circles, let it sit on the skin for 5 mins or so maybe 10.
Remove, apply a good moisturizer preferably one with Hyaluronic acid or even some aloe vera gel. Or olive oil, or jojoba oil (I like a lot).
Try that, call me in the morning!
Yogurt contains lactic acid from milk, an excellent exfoliant for drier skins.
Blueberries are antioxidants.
Brown sugar as the exfoliating agent.
Be gentle, though!
If available, you can use jojoba oil. You can get it at a shop where they sell natural products.
Honey is loaded with vitamins and high in antioxidants. The slightly acidic pH level of honey is what helps prevent the growth of bacteria, while its antioxidant elements clean up free radicals that are linked to diseases. The physical properties of honey vary depending on the specific flora used in its production, as well as its water content.
Besides, any leftovers, enjoy as a snack.
