DIY Honey Facial Scrub

My skin has been really suffering this winter. It's cold when I step outside and it feels like an oven when I step inside. Honestly, I think the custodian at work is secretly trying to give me a heat stroke. Combine that with increased makeup use, and my usually normal skin has turned on me.

The Symptoms:
  • flaky skin
  • lack luster tone
  • clogged pores
  • excess dirt and makeup
After considering some popular (and expensive) facial scrubs, I turned to a DIY mix to clean it up and smooth it out.


What you'll need:
  • 1 tbs. of honey
  • 1 tbs. of sugar (a finer grain works best)
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp. of olive oil
Mix the three in a small container and gently apply all over your face and neck, with special focus given to the flaky areas. Be sure to avoid your eyes! Rinse thoroughly. You may have some olive oil residue, but will come off when you pat dry.

Want to save time? Make a larger batch of this mixture for future use. All you have to do is keep the proportions of the ingredients the same.

Live Beautifully Tip:
Listen to your body. If your habits or environment are causing it to react strangely, then learn to adjust. You may have to give up makeup for a few days, but at least your body love you for it.
