home made face scrub

This is a simple, yet powerful face scrub/mask! And the good news? You can find each ingredient in your own kitchen, isn't that lovely? You can use it as a scrub (for face and also body if you change the quantities), as a face mask (for about 15 minutes) or both! 

I've been using it as a daily scrub for the last 5 months and I've loving it so much, that I don’t think I’ll purchase any other scrub from the market again (just saying...!). As my skin type is concerned, I have oily/combination skin (sometimes it's dry, sometimes it's not), some scars from spots 'that decided to live on my face without asking permission' and redness occasionally. Time after time, I've seen a HUGE difference, as my skin has really improved. Less breakouts, scars' fading, smoother and elastic skin! I prefer to use it in the morning, after washing my face with a mint soap. Then I rinse it off with warm water and pat a towel on my skin, but not too harsh, in order to let the olive oil soak in. 

So, these are the ingredients needed:

1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar

  • Natural exfoliator
  • Contains glycolic acid, that fights bacteria
  • Natural humectant, as it absorbs moisture from the environment, deposits it into the skin and keeps the moisture locked in

Juice of one Lemon

  • Natural exfoliator
  • Diminishes scars and age spots
  • Heals acne
  • Brightens the skin

1tbsp of Olive Oil

  • Natural exfoliator
  • Contains antioxidants, Vitamin A and Vitamin E, which allow it to work as a cleanser, moisturizer and skin protector

1tbsp of Honey

  • Natural antibacterial
  • Contains antioxidants, wich slow down aging
  • Extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow
  • Clarifying, as it opens up pores making them easy to unclog
