Homemade Brown Sugar Scrub:Body and Face Exfoliant.

Hey All, Sorry I haven't blogged in awhile, but I couldn't really think of anything exciting to share with you guys..lol..it's been the same old business lately. Well I have been using up all of the skincare products that I have in order to buy new ones...I ran out of my Tree Hut Shea Brown Sugar Body Scrub, and happend to come up with this concoction as a quick fix, since I need a scrub badly but didn't have the means or the time to go pick one up! Little did I know, the scrub I made in my kitchen sink with hot water I actually prefer!! I enjoy making a lot of my own skincare products, but seldom do because it can get messy. I just put this scrub right into the old Tree Hut container, and back into my shower on the shelf..
Ingredients.....
Brown Sugar ( amount depends on container you use, I filled it up half waywith a combo of l&d)
Light Brown Sugar
Dark Brown Sugar
2 Teaspoons of Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Lime Juice
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
4 squirts of Honey ( Conditioning agent, texturizer)
Optional Grapeseed Oil ( 1/2 tsp)
Okay since my brown sugar was a little old..and clumpy I had to moisten it with warm water in the kitchen sink and have it "melt" into my hands and into the container..I did this with both sugars..and then added in the other ingredients..I found it lacked texture, so I added honey to keep the ingredients together..I used this scrub when washing my face with a Green Tea cleanser (to ban irritation) and my skin came out baby smooth!! I am not positive how it would work on sensitive skin, since I have oily skin that is known for taking a beating ( considering all the makeup I wear, and when I get lazy about caring for the skin) But you sensitive skin girls should try it out, and let me know what you think!! A lot of people say sugar scrubs are too harsh and scratch the skin. I will admit..this one did feel more harsh than the Tree Hut..but for the baby smooth results I don't care!!!
Are their any quick fixes for the face you like to find in your kitchen??? =)
