Sugar facial scrub: make it yourself
If you are looking for an exfoliation facial scrub that is at the same time effective, totally natural and easy to prepare, look no farther than a sugar scrub.
Sugar makes a great exfoliant and will help slough off dead and opaque skin cells and help you achieve a softer, smoother and younger looking skin, and a healthy and shiny glow.
There are numerous face and body scrubs on the market, but they contain chemical ingredients, but you can create your own homemade and healthy sugar scrub by using two simple household ingredients: sugar and oil.
An exfoliating scrub made from sugar and olive oil is an excellent example, and is panacea for our skin as it is delicate and effective, and you needn't worry that the olive oil will clog your pores, as it is a natural oil.
Making it is very easy and very quick.
Take one cup of sugar with a 1/2 cup olive oil – but you can use other types of natural oils if you prefer, or even use some of your favorite facial cleanser by simply adding sugar.
Mix the sugar and oil until it has a pasty consistency, but the sugar still needs to be slightly grainy so it will slough off the dead skin cells, but no so rough that it results abrasive on the skin.
Apply the paste to your face and use a delicate circular motionto rub the scrub into your forehead, cheeks, chin for about 20-30 seconds, but be careful to avoid the eye area completely.
The skin around your eyes is much thinner and very delicate and should never be exfoliated.
Rinse off with warm water and dry with a soft and clean towel and you can apply your favorite moisturizing cream after.
If you have any leftover scrub you can use it on your body, legs, hands for a more delicate and gentler exfoliation treatment.
