SKIN CARE WITH SUGAR SCRUB
I will focus on the skin care because I have run out of some materials for make up. And besides,I enjoy wearing my natural look most times.
Sugar Scrub is a skincare product that can be used to mechanically exfoliate dead skin cells build-up from the surface of the skin.
It is can be used as facial scrub or body scrub. I decided to make as facial scrub. The difference in both is the quantity;you make little to use for face and more to use for the whole body. The body scrub is used on the whole body including the face after bathing while in the bathroom. This scrub is usually made with One part sugar to two or more parts of olive oil,either with tablespoons for only facial or with cups for the body scrub.
The one I made here is a facial scrub.
MAKING THE SCRUB
•Sugar 1 tablespoon
•Olive oil 2 tablespoon
Measure and pour sugar in a small bowl
Add the olive oil and mix.
Scrub is ready
For great scent,you can add some drops of lemon juice.

STAGES OF APPLYING ON THE SKIN
Apply gently on a washed damp face with the fingers in a circular motion.
I used two fingers (index and middle finger) You should do a gentle application to avoid hurting the face.
Whole face covered in scrub. After leaving it to sit for about 5 minutes.
Then I rinsed off thoroughly with warm water and pat dry with towel. I applied my lotion. You can also use a body oil.
My face after I had rinsed and pat dried.
After applying lotion
My face feels soft, smooth and moisturized. Also looks bright and clear. The scrub really gave a good result for me.
It can be used on the skin not more than twice weekly as part of a skin care routine.
