This DIY face scrub recipe is so easy to make and we’re betting you have all of the ingredients you need right in your own kitchen! Get a beautiful glow in minutes with just three ingredients – brown sugar, honey, and olive oil. Brown sugar makes a great facial exfoliant because the small granules are gentle enough for the face. Why not use white sugar? Brown sugar is flavored with molasses which contains vitamin B and is high in antioxidants. Who knew? Olive oil is a staple in most house holds. It’s a very mild and gentle oil so it’s perfect for soothing sensitive skin. Honey is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the atmosphere to your skin so, it too, will leave your skin feeling silky and soft. Honey is also a natural antibacterial and is full of antioxidants so you can’t lose with this ingredient. Enjoy!
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of olive oil
4-7 tablespoons of honey
Directions: Combine all of the ingredients into a small bowl and mix well until you reach a thick and gooey consistency.
To Use: Apply 1/2 tablespoon of the scrub to your clean, damp face. Gently massage into your skin for 1-2 minutes and rinse with warm water. Depending on your skin type you may or may not need to follow up with a moisturizer. For best results, and a beautiful glow, use the scrub 1-2 times per week.
