Every now and then — okay, more often than she likes — Recycla looks in the mirror and realizes that her skin is not looking its best. One remedy is to give it a gentle scrub. Oh sure, Recycla could buy (and has in the past) something to help her skin glow, but why do that when she already has the necessary ingredients in her pantry?
Check out this scrub recipe from Whole Living:
- 1 teaspoon pure honey
- 1/4 cup light olive oil
- 1 cup raw or granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons citrus zest (optional)
Blend the ingredients until well mixed, then store in a jar.
The honey is a humectant, which means it rehydrates the skin, while the sugar buffs away dead cells gently (it will dissolve as it works). The citrus offers an invigorating scent.
