There was a time when I bought all the fancy scrubs and cleansers from the department store. And paid a fortune for them.
A few years ago I decided to give some of the homemade versions a try.
And you know what?
In my personal experience, the homemade products have worked just as well, if not better for me.
Like this scrub, for example.
I used to use a scrub that I paid around $30 a tube for, and I really liked it(the scrub, not the $).
This brown sugar honey scrub works every bit as well, smells 100 times better, and costs 95% less to make.
But what I love even more?
Its all natural and toxin free.
Honey(RAW honey, mind you, not what is sold on most grocery store shelves) is amazing. Most honey that you buy in the grocery store has been heated and pastureized, losing its many benefits.
Did you know Raw honey has anti-bacterial properties, as well as anti-viral and anti-fungal?
It is great for healing acne and is also a humectant and draws moisture to the skin, leaving it soft and supple.
This leaves my skin perfectly smooth and soft. I absolutely love it and love what it does for my skin.
The cost doesn’t hurt either.
ITEMS USED TO MAKE THIS SCRUB:
- 1 T. Raw Honey
- 1 T. Brown Sugar
- Place the brown sugar and honey in a small bowl and mix together well. Store in a jar with an air tight lid.
- Keep at room temperature.
- TO USE: Wash face well. Apply a small amount of scrub(about ½ t.) to wet skin and massage gently in a circular motion. Avoid eye area. Rinse face well and pat dry.
