Milk and Honey Scrub Benefits
The benefits of a milk face scrub are many. Let's take a look!
- The lactic acid in milk is an alpha-hydroxy acid that naturally eats away dead skin cells, which is great for natural exfoliation.
- Sugar is also a natural exfoliant that helps polish the skin.
- Honey helps open your pores, helping clear away dirt and oil. In addition, honey is antibacterial, so it's very effective in preventing and treating unwanted acne.
- Honey is also a natural emollient that helps hydrate your skin.
In addition, a honey and milk mask/scrub contains antioxidants that help curb the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. Yes, please!
Oh, you can also cure dry, chapped lips with this stuff! Bonus!
How to Use
Here's how to use your milk and honey sugar scrub. Start with a clean face. Once your Milk and Honey Scrub is mixed and ready, apply it all over your face in circular motions and let it sit for a few minutes, and then wash off.
TIP - It's best to open your pores with warm water before use to increase the effectiveness.
If you want to use it as a mask, how long should you leave your milk and honey scrub on your face? That depends on how sensitive your skin is, but a general guideline is about 30 minutes.
Our skin is fine when we keep it on for more than an hour while we do household chores - well, glowing, to be exact!
Use on wet skin 1–2 times a week to gently exfoliate and nourish your skin.
Tips & Tricks
Here are the tips and tricks you should know when making your honey and milk sugar scrub.
- Since this scrub contains a perishable ingredient, it doesn’t keep. So it’s best to make it and then use it the same day.
- Since the skin on your face is delicate, graduated sugar is best to use in this recipe.
- As mentioned, we like raw honey, but you can use whatever type of honey you like.
- You can use this scrub 1-2 times per week, but always test to ensure it's safe for your skin.
This natural Milk and Honey Scrub acts as a great pick-me-up and can do wonders for drab, dull skin.
