Gently exfoliating your face with a face scrub on a daily basis can help rejuvenate and improve your skin tone. Without exfoliating, the dry and dead skin cells can block your pores which can lead to blackheads, acne, and discoloration. Regular exfoliation can result in fewer blotches and discoloration, less noticeable scars, event skin tone, and reduce in appearance of wrinkles. Fortunately, you can create amazing face scrubs right in your own home, catering the ingredients to your own skin. If you have never used a particular face scrub on your face before, do a spot test of the scrub on your inner elbow since the skin is especially tender. It's time to pamper your skin with these easy DIY face scrub recipes! For more facial recipes, check out our other DIY face scrub recipes at DIY Face Recipes - Face.

2/3 cup fresh pineapple chunks (room temperature)
1/4 cup cold-pressed olive oil

DIY SKINCARE Sunflower Face Scrub
1 Tablespoon raw sunflower seeds, shelled
A few teaspoons distilled water for mixing
In a food processor or coffee grinder, process the raw seeds until you have a fine powder that resembles coarse sugar. Pour into a clean container with a tight-fitting lid. Mix 1 tablespoon of the ground sunflower seeds with a few teaspoons of water to create a smooth paste. You can do this in the palm of your hand or in a ceramic bowl. Massage the mixture into your face and neck, and rinse well with warm water followed by cool water. Pat your skin dry with a soft towel and follow with your favorite moisturizer
