She vehemently denies it so we'll just have to keep on guessing:o)

One of the biggest problems with skin care today is that there is an oversaturation of products on the market to choose from. The choices are simply endless! Even when you've used a product before, there are no guarantees. They can change the formula's without saying a thing! When you use your own ingredients for homemade facials and scrubs, at least you know what you're getting!

These scrubs and homemade facials were mentioned on The Rachel Ray Show and on The Doctors. Robin McGraw (who was Rachel's guest) was nice enough to share her own recipes and The Doctors also recently shared their concoctions.

All the recipes are really easy to use and fun to make. You can add other ingredients to the recipes and try some of your own experiments. While they do take a little extra time and work, they're also incredibly worthwhile. If you like glowing skin, get busy mixing your own!

Homemade Facials and Scrubs by Robin McGraw

Robin's Facial Scrub

  • 1 cup of oatmeal
  • 1 cup of almonds
  • 1/2 cup of honey

    Combine ingredients in a blender until smooth. Scrub on face. Remove with a washcloth and then rinse with cold water.

    This scrub can be applied every day.

    Corn Starch Facial Scrub

  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 cup water

    Mix into a paste. Splash water on your face to moisten your skin and then apply the paste in a circular motion. After your face is completely covered, rinse with cool water.

    Morning Cleansing Drink

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

    Robin says, "This mix is a great way to start the day. It not only cleanses the body, but boosts the metabolism."

    Robin's Homemade Egg White Facial

  • 1 egg – white only

    Beat until frothy.

    Rub all over your face and neck. Allow it to dry thoroughly and harden, then rinse with cool water. This will make your skin tight and firm.

    Body Scrub

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons of avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite liquid soap
  • Juice from either 1/2 a grapefruit or 1 lemon
  • Grated lemon or lime peel
  • 1/2 cup chopped cranberries
  • 1/4 cup of rose salt
  • 2 tablespoons of an essential oil -- Lavender is Robin's favorite

    Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Use them when you shower by rubbing them all over your skin. (Do step out of the shower stream when you use them!) Rinse off with warm water and then do a final rinse with really cold water to help close large pores.

    Use once a week.

    Homemade Facials (and more) by The Doctors

    Peanut Butter Facial for Dry Skin
    (Anyone whose allergic to peanuts should not use this recipe!)

  • Organic smooth peanut butter

    Smooth the peanut butter over your face. Leave on for at least 5 minutes. Remove with a loofah sponge or microfiber cloth. (Use anything that will help gently scrape the dead skin cells from your skin.)

    Peanut butter has natural oils that satiate dry skin. Use regularly to help hydrate and plump! Alternately, you can also use this recipe on your body or anywhere you have dry skin.

    Pepto Bismol Facial to Brighten Skin

  • Bottle of generic brand Pepto Bismol

    Apply a thin layer of Pepto Bismol to your face. Allow to thoroughly dry. The longer you keep it on, the better results you'll get.

    Pepto Bismol has natural salicylic acid in it, which helps brighten and lighten your skin. Use regularly for clean smooth looking skin.

    Dr Ordin's $2 Two-Fer Facial
  • Ice tray
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • One fresh lemon, with juice extracted
  • Glass dropper (optional)

    Fill the ice tray with either purified water or reverse osmosis water till each cube is almost full. Add a couple of drops of lemon juice and oil to each cube. (If you don't have a dropper, just use a small spoon.) Freeze.

    Take one ice cube out of the tray and rub all over your face or body. Use the ice cubes wherever you want to see skin improvement! Allow the ingredients to sit on your skin and dry. Remove with a soft facial cloth or simply wash off.

    Lemon juice contains vitamin C, which encourages collagen production. It also helps exfoliate your skin. Extra virgin olive oil is an anti-inflammatory and feels incredibly soothing to dry, flaky skin. It also helps plump the skin.

    Naturally Tanned Skin

  • Organic cocao powder or plain cocoa powder
  • vitamin e oil or almond oil

    Add 1/2 cup of cocao powder to a small bowl. Add a couple of drops of oil to the cocao powder and stir till you get a creamy paste. Add more oil as necessary.

    Smooth the paste over your skin. Leave on for a few minutes then wipe off with a clean towel. Your skin will look tan and radiant until you shower it off. Cocao powder contains natural beneficial antioxidants and the oil helps to plump and moisturize your skin.

    Using homemade facials and scrubs is a great way to get away from using products that contain chemicals and may be dangerous to your skin. Use them regularly to help renew and refresh your skin!
