Brown Sugar + Honey Body Scrub

DIY: Brown Sugar + Honey Body Scrub || sarahesh.blogspot.com

I made this scrub for the first time as a young teenager. A zit had formed on my forehead, centered directly above my brows. In my mind, it was the size of a small Himalayan mountain, and I was going to do everything in my power to rid the pore of infection. I rubbed the scrub into my skin, good and hard, then applied a hot compress to the problem area. I had read that hot compresses work to draw out infection.


I was left with an area even more red and twice as obvious. Within a day or so, there was a large crusty scab where once lived a small, almost invisible to the naked eye, zit.

However, ten years later, I am still making this scrub and using it regularly, although it doesn't often go anywhere near my face, especially not when hot compresses and zits are involved. 

If you are brave enough to try it, and I hope you are, please only use it as a body scrub. 

I keep a small container in the shower and often will apply it to my legs before shaving. It exfoliates, removing dead skin cells, allowing for a super close shave, leaving your skin hydrated and silky-smooth. It's especially wonderful in the winter, when skin starts to look dull and dry.

It also is a great gift! Simply put it into a pretty jar or container, add some ribbon and a tag and maybe send a bottle your favorite colored nail polish along too.
