Homemade Facials and Scrubs from Robin McGraw and The Doctors
Try these inexpensive homemade facials and scrubs that were recommended by Robin McGraw and The Doctors.
They contain low cost ingredients you probably already have at your house!
Women especially pay a high cost for skin care products over time. When you find inexpensive products that work just as well, its fantastic!
Although it is rumored that Robin McGraw has undergone plastic surgery, there's no proof.
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!

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.

1/4 cup of your favorite liquid soap
Juice from either 1/2 a grapefruit or 1 lemon

Use once a week.

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
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!
