Homemade Brown Sugar Scrub



The first homemade scrub  I'll be talking about is the Brown Sugar Scrub and that's because brown sugar was the first organic product i used for the exfoliation of my skin. I have sweet tooth so it gave me great pleasure when i discovered i could apply something sweet to my face and it will be beneficial...Yippee!!




When i want to increase the sweet factor of my scrub i mix it with organic honey. Yummy? You can say that again! Honey has the ability to attract and retain moisture so after scrubbing with this mixture my skin feels not just smooth but also extra soft. And I'm also guilt free because there was no use of chemicals in getting the fabulous result.


Sometimes, just to feel like a good girl and stay away from sweets (I wish!); I mix 1 tbs brown sugar with 1 tbs  EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil). My typical mix for most of my scrub is a 50/50 portion of coarse product and liquid product.


My Scrubbing Process

  1. Get all your hair off your face.
  2. Wash face. (I use the Oil Cleansing Method)
  3. To open pores, steam face over hot water or press warm cloth to skin for a few minutes.
  4. After preparing scrub, apply it to face (and neck if desired). Avoid eye area. Allow it sit on your face for 10 minutes.
  5. Gently massage for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Rinse off with warm water.
  7. Enjoy results!

Other products you can use for scrubs include Coffee, Oats, Salt and my latest fav...Baking Soda! I'll be doing more posts on homemade scrubs soon, so stay tuned.

Remain Beautiful,

Onome
