SUGAR SCRUB EXFLOIATE


BENEFITS OF EXFOLIATES

 

Exfoliating can be very beneficial for your skin. It removes dead skin cells which keeps pores from clogging and help keep acne under control. Exfoliating also speeds up your skin renewal system which allows your moisturizer to penetrate your skin deeper. The removal of dead skin also helps with discoloration and uneven skin tones. An exfoliate can be used all over your body leaving it soft, glowing and moisturized. 

HOW TO APPLY:

Apply exfoliate to wet skin using a circular motion. Gently massage into skin for 2-3 minutes and rinse. I prefer to do this while taking a bath or shower. If you have oily skin I suggest exfoliating using a sea salt scrub. I will place a DIY for this soon. For dry skin I suggest you exfoliate using this sugar scrub up too 3 times a week. 


INGREDIENTS:

1 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 tsp of Honey
2-3 tsp Olive Oil
Lemon Zest 
Essential Oils of your choice
One air tight container

Place 1 cup of brown sugar in a bowl. Pour olive oil 2 tbsp at a time and mix until brown sugar is dark brown and moist. (Do not add too much olive oil because it will cause a mess whenever you open then container).  Add a tsp of honey and 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oils (lavender, peppermint, rosemary etc.). Add a little lemon zest. Mix all ingredients in the bowl. Place exfoliate in an air tight container.
