Sugar might not be so naturally healthy for you to eat, but it sure can work wonders to slough off the dead skin cells on your face. And when you get rid of the flaky, dead stuff you can uncover the smoothest and softest skin around!
And right now, around the holidays, if you’re thinking about what to give your naturally beautiful women friends – mix up a batch of sugar scrubs, put them in a clean clear jar, and wrap it up with a ribbon. All your healthy senior women and young beautiful friends will love you!
The basic ingredients for any sugar scrub are – well, sugar! Brown sugar and white sugar combined make a great scrub, or just use one of them. Add a little olive oil and honey and you’re good to go. Here’s a recipe to get you started:
1 C. Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 C. Extra Virgin Olive Oil, can substitute Sweetened Almond Oil or Vegetable Oil
1 tsp. Vitamin E (cut open Vitamin E liquid gel caps – this acts as a preservative)
1 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract , optional (or a nice feminine smelling essential oil)
1 TBL. honey (great for dry skin)
In a medium mixing bowl, combine EVOO oil, vitamin E and vanilla. Add the brown sugar and mix well. Put it in that clean, clear container or Mason jar and wrap it up with a pretty bow!
