Lately, Ive been looking for some new skin treatments to try. While I was on one of my favorite hair, skin and makeup blogs (MoptopMaven), she mentioned a homemade scrub she uses twice a week so I decided I'd give it a try. She suggested trying 1 tablespoon of raw honey and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. I looked online and saw this is a popular homemade scrub and some people add lemon juice. Honey adds moisture and the brown sugar acts as a gentle exfoliant. So for my first homemade scrub I went with:
1 tbsp on brown sugar
1 tbsp of raw honey (I got this from Whole Foods)
A splash of lemon juice
(You can also add a lil vanilla extract and/or oatmeal as well)
|Mix ingredients together in a bowl|
|This is the consistency final scrub should be.|
My final verdict for this homemade scrub...... I love it!! Its not harsh at all and it definitely leaves your skin with a smooth, soft feel. Make sure you use this on clean skin. This is great to do once or twice a week along with your regular skin regimen.
