Brown Sugar Exfoliating Facial:
Every woman needs a good exfoliating facial. These facials slough away dead skin cells and reveal the vibrant new skin cells. This facial can be a precursor to a moisturizing or toning facial afterwards. This brown sugar exfoliating facial is easy to make and to use. Here is a quick recipe to help you get started.
• Brown Sugar (One Tablespoon)
• Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil (One Teaspoon)
You can make a single serving of the brown sugar facial by placing the brown sugar in your palm (http://beauty.about.com/od/homemadefacemask1/r/Brown-Sugar-Scrub-For-The-Face.htm). Then, you should add the olive oil or coconut oil. Stir the mixture with your finger in the palm of your hand. You can add more or less sugar or oil as needed. Massage the mixture into the skin in a circular motion. Allow the mixture to sit on the face for a few minutes and then, rinse it off with water. Follow the exfoliating mask with a moisturizing mask or a moisturizer.
Tip: If you need to heal your chapped lips, add honey to the brown sugar mixture and massage it into the lips. The dry skin will be sloughed off with every circular motion. Consider brown sugar to heal your skin.
So, let your inner beauty shine forward and make your own skin treatment this winter. You will be the talk of all of the holiday parties with your bright and radiant new skin. Your confidence will exude when many people compliment you on your youthfulness. Get ready to celebrate and have a happy holiday season.
