Honey… Make Me Beautiful!

One of my favorite beauty regimens – honey sugar scrub.  Honey can be used in many ways for different beauty treatments but I like honey scrub the best!  This homemade honey sugar scrub is super easy to make plus it costs almost next to nothing.

All you need is honey, brown sugar (organic is the best), and olive oil (optional).  Make sure to use raw, unprocessed honey!  Mix all ingredients together until desired consistency.

Works fabulously on my face especially the T-zone for a deep pore cleansing (open up your pores before using).  Please, apply it ever-so-gently over the face… rub slowly… as you melt those sugar grains against your finger tips.

Leave it on your face for a couple of minutes then massage again in a circular motion while applying warm water.  Rinse off!  Time to say hello to velvety skin and bye, bye blackheads!  I do this about once a week.

I also use it as a body scrub in the shower whenever I have dry, flaky skin.  Ahhh, how fantastic for feet & elbows… baby soft!

Not really Miss. Homemade?  Here are my favorite honey scrubs available on the market that get the job done!  And can I say scrumptious!!!

For a body scrub, I love Honey & Lemon Sweet Sugar Scrub from L’Occitane.  It has a fantastic texture and heavenly scent!  See those fine grains (less gritty)… they will polish your skin so soft and leave it hydrated.  A total indulgence!!!

My #1 face scrub is Kiehls Milk, Honey, and Almond Scrub (no longer available at Kiehl’s but you can still find some online).  Let me tell ya, I LOVE this product!!!  Made with natural ingredients, this yummy paste is good enough to eat… well, don’t though.  LOL!

This fantastic scrub instantly brightens my face!  My skin has never felt this smooth, it gives you the perfect base for applying makeup.  It’s a super gentle scrub yet has a wonderful exfoliating power!  One tub goes a looooong way!  Soooo worth the price!

Kiehls Milk, Honey, and Almond Scrub 6 Oz. $20

My next favorite scrub is “honey… snap out of it” face scrub from BenefitCosmetics.com.  I leave it on my face for a few minutes after massaging into the skin… let all the good ingredients penetrate!  Gentle enough where it doesn’t cause me to breakout… it actually helps!  Leaves my face/hands dewy & glowy.  Smells delicious too!

“honey… snap out of it” face scrub $28
