Sometimes the best beauty products and procedures are hiding in your own home. Mother Nature has a wealth of items in her arsenal that can help anyone achieve flawless skin. Since winter seems so eager to rear its ugly head, here’s a facial scrub to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth, despite the rough weather.
The most important commandment of beauty DIY is to keep it simple, and this mask is great because there are only three ingredients, and you’re pretty much guaranteed to have them on-hand
- Brown Sugar- Helps exfoliate and slough away dead skin
- Lemon – Helps with oily skin and blemishes
- Honey- Helps create a healthy ‘glow’ and unclogs pores
No need for exotic and expensive items, all three ingredients can be bought inexpensively (and in bulk, I might add) so you can always have them available.
The good thing about this scrub is that you can play around with proportions, but when whip this up, I usually go for about and a ¼ cup of brown sugar and ½ tablespoon of lemon, and a tablespoon of honey. It should start to form a paste, but feel free to adjust the portions as necessary.
Gently rub onto your face in circular motions, taking care to avoid the eyes, once your whole face is covered, let it set for a minute before rinsing off with cold water. I guarantee you’ll have to resist the urge to stroke your newly smooth face for the rest of the day.
