We just came back from the farmers market and picked up a couple of goodies which we can actually incorporate into our skincare regimen.
We love a two for one, and this particular treatment not only balances and hydrates our skin but it also exfoliates and kills off bacteria which can clog our pores thus leading to breakouts.
The Brown Sugar Lemon Honey Mask & Scrub is fantastic and works wonders.
Like we’ve previously mentioned in earlier skincare notes brown sugar is a great exfoliator and has moisturizing and acidic (glycolic acid – alphahydroxy) properties. Since we will be applying physical and chemical exfoliation to the treatment you can basically say goodbye to scars and blemishes without dryness (brown sugar is moisturizing )
Honey has antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It will also add moisture and it will balance our skin.
Lemons fade away dark spots and will help us get a bright overall complexion.
Mix 1 1/2 tablespoons of Honey w/ 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice and 4 pinches of brown sugar.
After mixing the three components, apply on clean dry skin. Leave the mask on for 10 to 15 min. BEFORE rinsing, simply wet your hands and give your skin a two minute massage (exfoliating w/ the brown sugar) . Then rinse with warm water, pat dry and finish off with your favorite moisturizer. The results are glowy, balanced and hydrated skin.
