DIY: Yummy facial scrub/mask



Hello everyone!

This is a recipe for an inexpensive, easy and 100% natural scrub/mask.  This scrub/mask can be used on all skin types and it’s extremely beneficial for those who suffer from acne, acne scars or dry skin.



Ingredients:

1)  Sugar - 6 tablespoons

The main ingredient for this recipe is sugar.  Sugar works as a natural exfoliate helping to break up scar tissue.  It unclogges and reduces the appearance of larger pores.  Sugar is also very moisturising.


2)  Apple cider vinegar (ACV) – 1 tablespoon

ACV gently dissolves dead skin cells.   It exfoliates the skin breaking up scar tissue (helping even indented acne scars) and it’s also a great skin detoxifier.   It also contains vitamins A, E, C, B2, B6 and P which repair skin cells for softer skin.

3)  Honey – 1 tablespoon

Honey is a natural anti-inflammatory and helps the skin retain moisture.  It reduces redness and stimulates skin cell renewal.  It also has anti-aging benefits and is a natural skin firmer.

4) Green tea (optional – you can use water instead) – 1 tablespoon

Green tea detoxifies the skin with its anti-oxidant benefits.


Method:

Mix all the ingredients together and store in a glass jar.  


As you can see from the picture above; after letting it sit for awhile the sugar will settle at the bottom, so it will be necessary to stir well before using.


How to use:

  •           Apply the mixture all over your face and neck
  •           Massage the mixture and gently scrub for 2 to 5 minutes 
  •           Let it sit on your face for the next 10 minutes (if you want to use it as a mask)
  •           Rinse with warm water

Tips: 

I recommend using this scrub/mask 1-2 times a week for normal and dry skin and 2-3 times for acne prone skin.  You will begin to see and feel the effects of the ingredients on your skin from the very first application. 


Since this sugar scrub is completely natural, it can also be used as a body scrub and a lip scrub!

I enjoy to take a look numerous healthiness affiliated supplementations etcetera, I am engaging in a
bit study and conversing to various individuals who seem to have used the unfiltered ACV.
It appears to be pretty useful, only just wanting
I am able to consume it
I was slammed from the flu a few weeks back. Unbelievably, terribly unwell.
It begun Tuesday afternoon, bumped me under Friday, and I woke this morning, Monday, being like in close proximity to
passing. I kept in mind the bottle of ACV I saw it placed
below my kitchen drain. I didn't determine anything, but consumed what likely equaled around a one fourth of a mug of Apple cider diluted by about a 50 % cup of normal water, close to five instances over the early morning. After that again approximately 3 occasions throughout the day. It is at this time early nighttime, and I experience so significantly better it's not even interesting. Continue to conjested, but no agony whenever coughing, not to mention chills, temperature and body soreness are eliminated. Amazingly, furthermore, this early morning my eyes had iggy, fluffy totes under them, and they have eliminated down nearly completely.
