Looking for a healthy, natural way to exfoliate your face for a sweet, summer glow? Well then, let me share one of my favorite ways to exfoliate my face. It gets the job done extremely well, and it's gentle so not only doesn't it feel abrasive, but you aren't left with any of that ruddiness and redness some other exfoliating facial masks leave you.
- organic honey
- corn starch
1. Mix equal parts honey and corn starch together, enough to cover your entire face. I find about one tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon corn starch does the trick.
2. Spread the mixture over your face, and leave on for at least 15 minutes. If you're worried about dripping, a simple solution is to lay some tissues over your face over the mixture, this will help soak up any excess and prevent any from dropping on your clothes or the floor. Some people with more sensitive skin may still find honey a too harsh for their skin, in that case, simply leave it on for as long as you're comfortable. There are no hard rules for this!
You know how some commercial facial exfoliants that are filled with unnecessary chemicals warn users not to use their product more than once every week or so? Well, you can use this great little recipe as often as you like without any fear that it'll damage your skin. It's cheap and it's natural; can't lose.
