I love homemade beauty products. Just because you put it in a fancy jar and charge 40 dollars for an ounce doesn't make it any better! This scrub is made to help ex-foliate, and reduce pore size. It contains all kinds of awesome good for the skin things. First of all, honey is a natural anti-bacterial and has been used for over 2,000 years to treat wounds, and skin problems. It also contains anti-oxidant properties to keep skin healthy, wrinkle free, smoother and softer. Vinegar is a natural cleanser, and can also work to tighten pores- apple cider vinegar is usually best, it also smells better. Sugar here is the perfect exfoliator, and olive oil helps to add natural, healthy moisture to the skin. It is also dead easy to make, and smells completely amazing.
Lavender Rosemary Sugar Scrub
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2-3 tablespoon honey
a few drops of oil (until it forms a paste)
3-4 drops lavender essence
3-4 drops grapefruit essence (optional)
1 sprig chopped rosemary (can use dried if needed, about 1-2 tablespoons)
Mix until you have a paste you want, and add more sugar if it is too liquid or more honey/vinegar or oil if it is too dry. Apply to face in a circular motion after normal washing, and rinse with warm water.
