This scrub provides the perfect combination of exfoliating and moisturizing properties. The corn flour acts as a gentle polisher and stimulator. The olive oil dilutes the pre-existing oils on your skin (like dissolves like) which allows the pore clogging dirt and bacteria to surface and be cleaned away. When you rinse your skin, the olive oil won’t strip your skin of moisture. To use, simply take about a half a' teaspoon of the scrub rub in your finger tips to spread and massage into your face. If you are in the shower, apply the scrub and leave on to let the steam open your pores. Then rinse off with water and towel pat your face dry. I’ve found I need less face cream to hydrate after my shower. In the summer, I don't even need a moisturizer. This scrub will work with all skin types. By the way, Fat and the Moon uses this stuff religiously... Stir before using!
