Homemade Brown Sugar and Honey Facial Scrub

 I'm all about homemade beauty products lately - no chemicals or weird ingredients. This face scrub is edible! :) I found it on this website with other great homemade facial recipes I want to try too. I tried it last night and will use it regularly to keep my skin fresh and exfoliated. I hadn't exfoliated my face in months (when I ran out of my last tube of stuff... maybe even when we lived in MN) and my face seriously looks (and feels) more youthful and refreshed after exfoliating it.

Brown Sugar
In this facial scrub recipe, brown sugar is a mild exfoliate. It's not too abrasive and pairs really well with the texture of the honey leaving your skin smooth and refreshed.

Honey has many great properties for skin care. It moisturizes skin, has natural antioxidant and anti-microbial properties, helps in the treatment of minor acne and more.

The Recipe:
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp brown sugar (you could also use white sugar)

Blend in a small bowl and apply! Easy as that. I let mine sit for a few minutes as a mask and loved it. Enjoy!
