Ascorbic acid-nutmeg face scrub

Ascorbic acid-nutmeg face scrub
This is an extremely effective exfoliating treatment for clear, smooth skin with fewer pores. It helps against acne, but can ge rough so if your acne is causing you sensitive skin you should be careful with this recipe. Use maximum twice a week, my recommendation is to use it once a week or when needed.


  • 1 tbs ascorbic acid (you can find it in the spice section in most larger shops) or a pulverized vitamin c tablet
  • 1 tbs ground nutmeg
  • castor oil or olive oil
Combine the dry ingredients. Pour the vegetable oil over the powder until it’s covered and mix well. The amount of oil you use is up to you – the more oil you use, the milder the scrub will be.
To use, scrub your face carefully with circular motions. Leave on for up to 10 minutes. If you face starts stinging or if it feels uncomfortable, rinse off sooner. Rinse of in warm water, apply a light vegetable oil if needed.

      I love this for my oily acne skin, and it really looks like my pores are a lot smaller after using it. Also, vitamin C is really good for aging skin so this could work for you as well. Evening primrose oil is a classic youth inducing skin oil, mixed out with some jojoba or argan oil if you like because evening primrose is rather expensive. I’ll have to think about some other tips, it’s not really a problem for me yet…
