Facial masks and scrubs hold a vital importance in skin care and treatments. A number of facial scrubs are available in the market but most of the users avoid using synthetic products, which might not suit all types of skin. Users prefer natural ingredients to apply on their face, as those ingredients have no harmful effects upon delicate skins. Moreover, there is no better way to preserve your natural beauty than using the natural herbs and ingredients. Natural honey has been used as a brilliant ingredient for skin care for years and its results have been phenomenal. You can effectively use honey and sugar to prepare a facial scrub at home and you will be amazed to witness the results of its use. The anti-bacterial and moisturizing properties of honey and sugar serving as an effective exfoliant, are far better than the chemical-filled products available in the market.
Wash and cleanse your face completely before beginning any facial treatment. Use a gentler cleanser because you have to use a facial scrub afterwards and using a harsh cleanser might cause skin irritation. Dry your face with a clean towel.
Take a one table spoon of sugar and three table spoons of honey in a mixing bowl. You can use a spoon or plastic spatula to thoroughly mix the contents together and form a thick paste of the ingredients. You can increase the quantity of your facial scrub by adding the ingredients with the same 1:3 ratio.
Apply the scrub to your face gently to avoid over exfoliating your skin. Gently massage the scrub on your face with your fingers. Don’t leave any part of your face, including your neck and area under the chin. Move your fingers in clock-wise direction and don’t apply too much pressure, as the sugar particles in the scrub might cause skin irritation if you massage roughly. Massage the scrub for five to ten minutes.
Apply another layer of honey and sugar mixture on your face, sit down and relax. You can put slices of fresh cucumber over your eyes and lie down to relax for at least 25 minutes.
When the facial scrub dries on your face, get your hands wet with warm water and gently start to rub the scrub into your skin. Massage for one minute and then rinse your face with warm water.
Apply your favourite toner and moisturizer after you dry your face with towel.
