You will have healthy looking, glowing skin after giving yourself one of these sweet sugar scrubs. Your skin will not only have a shine to it, it will also feel soft as silk.

When we think of sugar, it's usually related to our diet. We think we've got to cut it out of our food plan, we eat too much of this sweet product. But when it comes to your skin, bring that sweet stuff on! You can't use too much sugar on your face. It is a wonderful exfoliating tool. The sugar granules scrub the old, tired skin cells to reveal the new skins cells that were hiding underneath them.

The great thing about a sugar scrub facial is how easy it is to make.

By removing the dead cells on the top of your skin your skin will be glowing with fresh, new and healthier skin cells. Find out more about essential oils here.

Lavender Sugar Face Scrub To Smooth Out Your Scarred Skin

To make a scar fading facial mix you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • one capsule of vitamin E
  • a few drops of Lavender essential oil

Mix all your ingredients together. Blend them well. You can apply this mixture to your face using your fingers. Apply the face scrub gently, using circular motions to massage it around your face. Do this for a minute or two and then you can let the mix sit on your face for a few minutes. Rinse it off with warm water, give your face a splash of cold water and then dry your face gently using a soft towel.

Each of the ingredients in this face scrub plays an important role in removing scars from your face. Of course, nothing short of plastic surgery will completely remove a scar, but these ingredients can fade scars caused by acne or some other trauma that occurred. Coconut oil is famous for its healing properties. Vitamin E is very well known as a scar healer, and the Lavender essential oil will help your skin cells to regenerate.

Lemon & Sugar Anti-Aging Face Scrub

If you want to make your own anti-aging Lemon scrub here are the ingredients you will need:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of Argan oil
  • a few drops of Lemon essential oil

Mix all the ingredients together. Apply it to your face using gentle, circular motions. It's important to be gentle whenever you are applying anything to your face. The skin on your face is fragile and you don't want to do more harm than good by being rough. Massage the face scrub into your face for a minute or two. Let it sit for another couple minutes and then rinse it off using warm water. Splash your face with some cold water to shrink those pores and then using a soft towel, gently pat your face dry.

Olive oil is rich in polyphenols and oleic acid. These ingredients help combat the aging of your skin. Argan oils, one of my favorite oils (I use it for my face and it's what my hair conditioner is made of) is rich in vitamin E and has saponins, both of which soften the skin and help to reduce the signs of aging skin. The Lemon essential oil is the perfect addition to this mix since it is a natural skin toner, it will leave your face with a healthy glow.

One thing to remember - The cold-pressed Lemon essential oil is what is called a phototoxic. It will make your skin sensitive to the sun so be sure to avoid excessive sun exposure for 48 hours after using it on your skin.
