I love a good facial scrub, it does a world a difference for my skin when I exfoliate. There are so many good DIY scrubs out there but this is one I came up with last year. Mix it up and use 2-3 times per week.

Simple Honey Scrub
~ 3 tablespoons olive oil
~ 2 tablespoons honey
~ 1/2 cup sugar 

This is why I love this scrub:
  1. Not only is olive oil good in your food, it does miracles for your skin. It's been used in soaps for centuries. Olive oil contains lots of antioxidants, vitamins (specifically A and D), and natural moisturizers that help regulate sebum or oil production. read more here
  2. Honey is like liquid gold. Like olive oil, it's a great natural moisturizer full of vitamins (A and B). Honey also contains antimicrobial properties that fight against bacteria. read more here, and here
  3. The sugar's main purpose of course is for exfoliation, I like using sugar because it's gentler than salt, which is used in many homemade scrubs. I usually use white cane sugar in this scrub but brown sugar works well too.
