 We absolutely lurrrve this face scrub. Made with oats, almond oil and spices, it will leave your skin looking, smelling and feeling utterly delicious. And the best thing about it is that it's homemade using ingredients you probably already have lying around (meaning a lower carbon footprint, less packaging and fewer nasty chemicals). 

We've created two DIY face scrub recipes — one for sensitive skin and one that's a more powerful exfoliator. Find whichever works best for you and see how your skin responds. We also like using this oatmeal scrub to help take off our surf zinc post-sesh. (Of course, if you have any skin conditions, it's probably best to speak to a skincare professional about your specific requirements before starting a new skincare regime).  

Oatmeal face scrub for sensitive skin

Use as a face scrub or place in the fridge and apply as cooling face mask after a long day outdoors. 

1/2 cup rolled oats 
1/2 cup sweet almond oil (olive oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil if you live in warmer climates!) 
1 teaspoon nutmeg 

Combine all mix in blender to chop up oats (yup, it's that simple!). 

For a tougher exfoliant or after a long hike, add:

(This is for a deep scrub, not an everyday scrub).   
 

2 tablespoons of castor sugar 
And/or 
2 tablespoons of polenta

In the colder weather, the combination of wind, cold weather and indoor heating can leave your skin dry and chapped. And even though you might not be showing so much skin in the cooler months, it still deserves love!

In our experience, the best way to create a new habit is to make it feel a little luxe. Here are our favourite rituals to care for your skin (and yourself!) in the wintertime.
