Lemon-Honey Sugar Scrub {My Face Wash}

COMEDOGENIC RATINGS v1.2

I have something to tell you. I am getting older. Unfortunately, so is my skin. The days of baby butt smooth skin are OVER, and bumpiness and redness are the new normal. Boo. My new awesome old person symptom is milia, yes, those little hard, white bumps typically found on newborn skin. What the heck?? After doing some research I decided that exfoliation was going to be my plan of attack. I experimented with a few homemade recipes until I found one that has worked well. My milia is almost gone and my hormonally fueled outbreaks are at an all time low. Phew!!

I wanted to share the recipe with you, but also encourage you to play with it a little bit and find what works well for your skin. If you have super oily skin you might use less grapeseed oil, or opt for an oil that has a lower comedogenic (acne causing) rating.

COMEDOGENIC RATINGS v1.2

Ingredients:

- 1/2 C. white sugar

- 1-2 T. grapeseed oil

- 1-2 T. honey (for antibacterial qualities)

- 2 drops lemon essential oil (to help clear out dead skin cells, brighten complexion)

- 2 drops Frankincense essential oil (to help with scars, acne, wrinkles)

Mix it all up in a glass jar.

Reminder: ALWAYS use glass when storing citrus oils, they will eat through plastic!

I use a small scoop of this on my face twice a day, it is amazing and the grapeseed oil in it keeps my skin moisturized without having to apply lotion.
