Sweet Face: Maintain a Healthy Glow With Honey

Your skin is dry, tired, and lacks the suppleness it once had. But, instead of slathering on mounds of moisturizer and abrasive exfoliates - you'd like to try a more natural approach.

Not sure where to start? Try a homemade organic raw honey and sugar scrub.

It's super easy to make! Here are the ingredients:

- 1/2 ounce of organic raw honey
- 1 teaspoon of organic raw sugar
- 1 teaspoon of organic olive oil (optional)
- 1 cup of organic milk/distilled water (optional)


- Mix honey and sugar together in a bowl (add olive oil if skin is really dry)
- Apply to face/body using small circles to work in mixture
- Leave scrub on for 5 minutes or longer, then rinse with lukewarm water in sink/shower
- *For extra luxuriation - rinse with organic milk or distilled water and pat skin dry with towel

This anti-oxidant mixture removes dry skin and restores moisture leaving skin soft and smelling sweet. Re-apply mask once a week or whenever necessary.

If you have skin sensitivities, using organic and/or raw ingredients are very important in this skin application. Allergies to harsh chemicals often lead to breakouts, rash, more dryness, and discoloration of the skin.

The freshest and highest quality ingredients on your skin can also be affordable. Just a small amount of ingredients are needed for this facial, which leaves you with dozens more applications for future skin treatments.

All organic ingredients can be found at your local farmer's market, grocer, or health food store.
