Here’s a great scrub to help eliminate those pesky blackheads. Baking soda helps rid the skin of bacteria and removes dead skin cells. Brown sugar helps to exfoliate skin and unclog pores. Because of the molasses in brown sugar, you also get a dose of vitamin B for your skin. And honey is such a great ingredient in natural skin care. Honey is a natural antioxidant and helps heal the skin due to its antibacterial properties. Enjoy!
-1 tablespoon brown sugar
-1 tablespoon baking soda
-1 tablespoon honey
-1/2 teaspoon water
Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl with a fork. Lightly massage the mixture onto your face, and leave on the skin for a few minutes. Rinse well, and make sure to moisturize afterwards. Makes enough for one treatment. You can use this scrub 1-2 times a week.
Skin care tip:
Make sure to use at least an SPF 15 sunscreen on your face, even if it’s cloudy out. Those sun rays still find a way to damage your skin no matter what the weather. If you’re using a foundation with an SPF, the small amount you use doesn’t give you adequate sun protection. I really like using this sunscreen.
