PRINT RECIPE

Oatmeal, cornmeal, and wheat germ all make excellent skin scrubs on their own, so why not combine the three to create a multipurpose cleansing grain mixture that can be used all over your face and body? Keep a jar of these cleansing grains in your bathroom, and add a small amount of the mixture to your favorite cleanser to give it extra cleaning power and help remove dead skin cells. Yield: 2 ounces.
