- extra virgin olive oil
- honey (raw honey is the best, but whatever honey will do)
- organic sugar (it's best to use organic for your skin, it much more pure)
- (this one is optional) an empty container to save your face scrub (it depends on how much scrub do you make, you can save it for another time)
- and you will need a bowl and spoon to measure and mix everything together :)
Measure two and a half table spoons of sugar and put it in a bowl. Pour one spoon of extra virgin olive oil into the bowl and add one and a half spoon of honey. Mix all three ingredients together. If the consistency is too thick, add some more oil and honey.
Apply this scrub to freshly washed face, massage it all over your face for at least a minute, avoiding eye area, because it's extremely delicate. You can even apply this scrub all over your body, it won't do any harm :).
Rinse all that sugar from you face (and body) with warm water.
Afterwards I apply face toner (which is also homemade!) and a night cream, although the skin is already moisten from olive oil. I usally do scrubs, masks etc. at night time before bed, just in case my skin gets red, so it can regenerate during the night, that's why I apply night cream afterwards :).
I save it in a clean container .
Extra virgin olive oil will not clog your pores, it's actually recommended by so many beauty gurus and cosmetologists as a beauty "helper". Honey is a natural lightener for your skin (and hair) and sugar works as exfoliator, goes into you pores and cleans them.
I would use this scrub 3 - 4 times a week. I have very sensitive skin, and if it doesn't harm my skin, noone's skin will be harmed :D.
