The Secret Spa in Your Kitchen - Brown Sugar Facial Scrub

Brown Sugar Facial Scrub

1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil OR
2 tablespoons almond oil
1 tablespoon of your favorite facial soap

Sugar is a good abrasive skin scrub, cleansing/stimulating the skin.

Blend ingredients. GENTLY massage over face/neck/chest area. Avoid delicate skin under eyes. Rinse with tepid water, pat dry. Follow with moisturizer. (It also works great on your hands).

DO NOT USE white sugar or salt - they are too harsh on the facial skin.

This one is great to make a double or triple batch of and store in a mason jar. I have some I keep in the bathroom closet.
