Sugar can be mixed with a variety of other natural ingredients to make a face scrub. ..but in this post ,all we will need is sugar….Brown sugar ,but you can as well use a basic well refined white sugar.
Here is the procedure of using white/brown sugar as as a face scrub . it’s as easy as you wish life could be 😊!
1.wash off your make up thoroughly with luke warm water and use a soft face cloth to gently scrub off the makeup.You can either use a facial soap or even the basic bar soap…whichever suits your skin best!
This is one of the easiest natural ways of washing off your make up every night before retiring to bed.The luke warm water helps in opening up the pores.It is advisable to use cold water in the final rinse as it closes the pores.Do not use hot water in washing off your make up as it scalds the skin and causes irritation and uncomfortability!
2.After washing off your make up,pat it with clean luke warm water for it to remain moist.Pour 1-2 teaspoon sugar in the palm of your hand.Add drops of water until the sugar becomes moist.Do not pour alot of water as the same will dissolve the sugar and make it less effective to be used as a face scrub.
Tip:Use fine grained brown /white sugar as large grains are likely to scratch your face;and who wants to have scratches on their faces anyway?
3.Once the sugar is moist,apply it to your face and massage it GENTLY in a CIRCULAR motion to ensure the removal of dead skin.Keep on massaging until it forms a white precipitate.The white precipitate serves as a face mask.Leave it for about 10 minutes then rinse it off with luke warm water.Press the skin with a warm face cloth and ensure you pay attention to the sides of the nose and every other dry spot to ensure you wash off the sugar completely.
4 .Finish up by splashing your face with cold water as it closes the pores and gives the skin a pure sense of freshness.
5.Dry your face with a dry face cloth and apply a moisturiser of your choice as the same helps in hydrating the skin,leaving you with a beautiful,jealousy – inducing skin!😍😍
Repeat this every week,or do it twice in a week depending on your skin condition!
Voila!Getting a healthy,youthful,glowing skin is as easy as A,B,C,D!Clearly you don’t need to go out in the stores and buy those expensive facial clensers and scrubs ,do you?
