Honey And Brown Sugar Facial Scrub For Healthier Skin
Yeah, the sugar is not good…for eating.
- It contains lots of calories
- It unbalances the ratio of minerals in the body, determining chromium and zinc deficiency, and disrupting the absorption of calcium and magnesium
- It causes a rapid increase in the secretion of adrenaline that leads to anxiety, hyperactivity, mental alertness in children
- It can cause many disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, such as increased intestinal acidity, indigestion, malabsorption in patients with functional gastrointestinal disease, increased risk of developing Chron’s disease and ulceration colitis
- It leads to the occurrence of obesity and premature aging
Sounds really scary, right? But before throwing away all the sugar on this planet, maybe we can consider keeping some for skin use. Because it is amazing for skin exfoliation. It is maybe the best exfoliant, not as harsh as oatmeal or salt. It has smaller particles so its action is gentler and harmless. The glycolic acid is important in keeping the skin healthy and vibrant.
You should try this scrub as it is very easy to prepare, it smells great and it’s very effective.
You will need:
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup raw honey
- 1 drop essential oil (I used lavender, but choose your favorite)
- 1 tablespoon coconut or olive oil
- Place the sugar in the bowl.
- Add the raw honey to the bowl.
- Add the coconut or olive oil to the bowl.
- Add the essential oil to the bowl.
- Mix all the ingredients well.
- Apply the scrub to your face and neck with circular, gentle moves.
- Use warm water to rinse the mask, then wipe the face with a warm, soft towel.
- Keep the scrub in a dry container.
- Use it once/twice a week.
- After you remove all the dead cells, apply a moisturizing homemade lotion.
You should use this face scrub on a regular basis, because the skin regenerates better if you help it by removing all the undesired cells and dust residues. A deep cleansing at least once a week will keep your skin young and strong and able to fight with all the external agents that may harm it.
