Sugar & Honey: smooth & polish skin in minutes, face & body!

29 Dec

Sugar & Honey

The holidays as well as being a fun time can also be stressful especially on your skin. The harsh winter weather makes our skin dry out and stress often cause skin to break out in rashes or cause red blotches/uneven skin tone.

With two simple ingredients you can rid your skin of the above problems as well as smooth out your skin and polish it at the same time within minutes!

It is best to use this mask when you have a day/night in as you skin may be left slightly red due to the dead skin cells being removed.

This easy to make homemade face mask needs two ingredients:

  • Brown Sugar, 1/4 cup – containing oils which take care of the dryness the brown sugar grains also removes dead skin cells leaving the skin smoother.
  • Honey, 1 tablespoon – not only does the honey combine the sugar and allow it to stick to your skin but it makes for a great moisturizer and polisher.

Method:

  1. Mix the brown sugar and honey until well combined in a small bowl.
  2. Apply the mixture to your face, keeping away from your hairline. Some of the mixture may fall off if you move around too much/fast so make sure you sit and relax while you have this on!
  3. Leave on for 10 minutes and then with a wash cloth gently scrub the mask off, using circular motions, with warm water.

Your skin will be left smooth and shiny – all ready for the New Year ahead!

I like to use either Ponds Cold Cream or Bio-Oil on my face after washing this particular mask off as it calms down the redness as well as leaving my skin replenished.

What's next?

  • Oh and one of the best things about this homemade mask is that any leftovers can be used as a bath scrub so your body can also be left smooth and polished! Just use a wash cloth/glove to gently scrub the honey sugar combination into your skin and then wash off with warm water.
