For your peace of mind we will tell you that before publishing this recipe we have prepared it, we have tried it and we like it so much that we want to share it with all of you. Everything and that the correct thing is to show the quantities in gr or ml, this information will be facilitated by expressing it in closer measurements, thinking of those people who do not have a cosmetic precision scale and facilitating its preparation as much as possible. Take note.


- 1 tablespoon of unrefined shea butter (if you can't stand its smell, go for the refined one). We love the original smell of the components but it is true that it impacts.

- 1 teaspoon of your favorite vegetable oil: argan, jojoba, apricot, cumin ...

- 1/2 teaspoon of the exfoliating element of your choice. We give you options: coconut sugar, panela, poppy seeds, powdered bamboo ... The amount that we indicate is indicative and will depend on the degree of exfoliation you prefer. You choose.

- A few drops of lemon juice.

Mix all the ingredients in the same order that we expose until the mixture is well emulsified. It will take you very little time.


Clean your face with soap and water. Apply the exfoliating mask and massage with the tips of your fingers throughout the area. Insist on chin, nose and forehead. You, more than anyone, know your skin, if you suffer from rosacea, avoid exfoliation on the cheeks and more sensitive areas. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse with cold water. Dry without rubbing. Apply toner soaked in a cotton ball and finish with a few drops of your favorite oil. No more is needed.

If you consider that the amount prepared is too much, next time use half of the ingredients. If, on the other hand, you prefer to have a certain amount available, you can prepare the mixture of shea butter, oil and the exfoliating active and when using it, just add the drops of lemon juice. To the mixture of shea + oil + scrub it is not necessary to add any type of preservative since no water has been added. Remember not to add the lemon juice until just before using it.

Suitable for all skin types.

¡We hope this recipe becomes a staple in your facial care!
