There are a lot of exfoliant that you can buy in the market today. Most of the times, we can't decide which is the best product to use. And sometimes, you just end up regretting buying because it's not effective and worse it didn't make you any prettier but uglier because of the breakouts that the product caused you. So I decided to just make a home recipe exfoliant. It's cheaper and most of all it is really safe to use. And I guess, it really works well for me. So how about you mommies out there?

Yes being a college student i well make exfoliants at home only because mostly i dont believe in the market products for skin care, i make my exfoliant by putting together some almonds i crush them fine i add sugar in it half tea spoon is enough, then i put one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of the crushed almond poweder mixing it together apply on your face wait for 2 to 3 min let it melt on your skin, when the sugar starts melting slowly scrub you face dont be too harsh on your skin or else you will end up something wrong scrub till 1 to 2min and wash off, you will notice a really glowy skin, white as milk, and really tender and soft to touch.with absolutely no harm.

You asked what others used but I am wondering what ingredients are in the exfoliant that you make at home. I have bought a few different exfoliating scrubs and they just dont seem to much. When I do that works better is to take a little sugar and add a few drops of water until it makes kind of a thin paste. Then I rub it around on my skin. It leaves my skin really soft.

I use neutrigina or proactive. These are some of the best brands for exfoliating. They are great for skin and acne. I think they are safe. You have seen them on TV. They say they have been tested. Even some stars use them. This is my opinion anyway.
