Homemade Facial Scrub

Milk and Sugar Scrub
  • 1-2 TBS whole milk
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar (I like Rapadura-available at health food stores)
  1. Mix milk and sugar until sugar is dissolved
  2. Spread mixture on freshly washed face and scrub gently for 1 minute.
  3. Leave on for 15 minutes (this step is optional) and rinse with warm water
It leaves your skin baby soft!

Here's one I'll be trying soon:

Brown Sugar Body Scrub

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup of honey
  • 3 Tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh ginger
  1. Place the sugar, honey and lemon juice into a bowl
  2. Grate the fresh ginger and add it to the mixture
  3. Mix it all up and run to the shower!
  4. Apply generous handfuls all over and give a good old scrub while you’re doing it.
  5. Leave it on for a couple of minutes and wash off.

Viola! Sweetly scented, gorgeously soft skin!

I tried the facial scrub and I liked it. Do you think it makes a difference on the type of brown sugar that you use?

I'm not sure but I used Rapadura which has coarser crystals than regular brown sugar.
