Our mother, with her long shiny hair and glowing skin, perfect in every way a woman can be, was right.
My sister and I grew up doing this skin care treatment with our mother. She would always tell us to take care of our skin, our body, and our health. She would stress the importance of MAKING TIME to look after ourselves.
“If I don’t make the time, who will take care of me if not myself right?”
Morning/Evening Facial Scrub for Healthy Glowy Skin
You need sugar, raw honey, and lemon juice.
For one use: In a small bowl, mix together 1 tbsp of sugar and 1tsbp of honey and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Large Quantity for multiple uses: 1/2 cup of sugar, juice of 1/2 a lemon and gradually add raw honey until you’ve reached the consistency and thickness you prefer.
How: First, wash your face with warm water to open up your pores. Gently rub the mixture into the face and lips, making a circular motion with your fingertips for 1-3minutes. Rinse away the scrub with cold water, this will tighten and firm your skin.
Raw Honey contains antibacterial properties, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention. Lemons are rich in vitamin C and citric acid so they can help brighten and lighten your skin when used over time. Sugar is a gentle abrasive which helps to remove dead skin cells from your face.
Top Tip: Washing your face with warm water in preparation for a cleanse/scrub will help open up your pores for the scrub to work more effectively. Rinsing with cold water at the end will help tighten up your pores and firm your skin!
Extra Top Tip: Keep a jar of raw honey and a jar of sugar and a teaspoon in the bathroom, specifically for your beauty routine. Better to separate and not mix these with your food. Just take a wedge of lemon each time 🙂 For those with little time, I would recommend making a small jar to store in a dry place, and out of the sun. BUT, I wouldn’t make a huge quantity, as the raw ingredients may lose their properties over time and we WANT the scrub to work as effectively as possible!
