Pamper yourself with this yummy easy-to-make DIY brown sugar scrub that is great for oily, acne-prone skin.
Brown sugar scrub is excellent for exfoliating the skin, it scrubs off dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin. When these dead skin cells are removed, this gives room for the healthy skin cells to regenerate and replace the old ones, giving your skin a glowing, smooth look.
Benefits of using brown sugar scrub –
This scrub will give your skin a deep cleanse; remove the excess oil and dirt trapped inside your skin pores – which is the main cause of acne and pimples – and prevent a further breakout. This deep cleanse makes it easier for blackheads, whiteheads, acne pimples, etc, to be successfully cleared.
Glycolic acid; which is a powerful alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), in brown sugar, makes it an effective ingredient for removing toxins and bacteria and also moisturise the skin.
How to do a brown sugar scrub:
(Ensure that the quantity of brown sugar is a bit more than the olive oil or else the olive oil will melt the sugar and it will become too drippy and will not be able to properly exfoliate your skin).
4. Leave on your face for about 10 minutes (try not to lick the mixture off your face, hehe). Wash off with a mild face wash or soap.
5. Pat your face dry and moisturise well with a natural moisturiser.
You can substitute olive oil with coconut oil if necessary, coconut oil also works well with this scrub.
If you have a sensitive skin, you might notice a slight redness to your face but that is nothing to worry about.
It’s just because this scrub stimulates blood circulation in your facial tissues. This will disappear in no time and leave your face glowing, soft, hydrated and smooth to the touch. So you don’t need to do anything to it.
