To make a simple face scrub with sugar and honey, combine granulated sugar and honey in a bowl, then massage the scrub onto a clean face. Use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar, and add coconut or olive oil plus a drop of essential oil for an enhanced facial scrub.

  1. Combine the sugar and honey

    Measure 1 tablespoon of organic, fair trade sugar and 1 tablespoon of raw honey. Mix the two ingredients together in a bowl.

  2. Wash your face, and apply the facial scrub

    Prior to using the scrub, wash your face well. Using your fingers, gently massage the sugar and honey scrub into the skin for about a minute. Leave the scrub on your face while you shower, then rinse it off with warm water.

  3. Make an alternative sugar and honey scrub

    As an alternative, combine 1/2 cup manuka honey, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil, and one drop of an essential oil, such as lavender or jasmine. Mix the ingredients well, then gently massage onto the skin in a circular motion. Rinse with warm water, and gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Apply a gentle facial moisturizer after exfoliating with the sugar and honey scrub.
