I’ve been using a home-made exfoliator recently and I thought I’d share it with you because it works so well. It’s super simple and really cheap.

My face looks a little red because it wasn’t long after I’d done it. I should probably say that I’m 33 so if my skin doesn’t look totally amazing that’s why! I’ve just found it so much better than any shop-bought exfoliators I’ve used and feel like my skin looks a lot fresher afterward.

So to make it you need only 2 ingredients:

  1. granulated sugar
  2. honey
Just mix up honey and sugar until you get a good consistency for rubbing over moist skin. I did try it with soft brown sugar at one point but for me plain white sugar works best.
Honey is naturally fantastic for skin –
  • Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention.
  • It’s full of antioxidants, and it is great for slowing down aging.
  • It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow.
  • Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.

Spots!-

Just to reiterate something from my post about natural ways to cleanse, tone and moisturise. If you get spots on your chin – take vitamin B6! Take a lot – at least 100mg and it clears them up completely. Apparently spots on your chin are caused by a hormone imbalance or something and B6 sorts it out.

This exfoliator also helps with spots in a more general way though.

 

So there you go – super quick and easy to make. Really cheap and works SO well! I’ll never ever go back to shop-bought exfoliators.

 

In the photo you’ll notice my skin is a bit oily. I always put a little on my face afterward to soothe the skin – again check out my post:

I hope this is helpful. Give it a try! Let me know what you think in the comments and if you’ve got any good recipes for things like this I’d love to hear about them!
