  • Sugar is a big depository of skin -beautifying qualities if used topically on the skin as an exfoliating scrub. It can deliver excellent results in brightening and polish your skin. It has moisturizing properties that prevent the skin from drying.
  • Sugar is slightly abrasive, so it works well for scrubbing off the dead and dry skin on the face. When combined with a moisturizing agent like honey, you’ll not only remove the gunk from your skin but also hydrate your skin in the process.

  • Honey is a humectant. It also contains anti-bacterial properties to help get rid of bacteria on your skin that can cause acne and other skin imperfections.
  • Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that penetrates the skin and breaks down the bonds of dead skin cells, encouraging cell turnover and generating fresh skin layer.
  • The enzymes in raw honey clarify skin and keep pores clear and clean and also it is loaded with antioxidants, enzymes, and other nutrients that nourish and hydrate skin.

  1. Will this mixture separate? I made a pink salt and honey face scrub but the two keep separating in the jar within 24 hours.

    1. Hi Mali, You can add emulsifying wax to the mixture to avoid the separation. It doesn’t harm the skin. It’s just the binding ingredient. Add 1/2-1 tsp emulsifying wax to your recipe.

        1. Hi Mary, I would suggest you not use this scrub if you have active acne or pimples. Scrubbing acne and pimples can exaggerate the conditions. And Yes, this scrub does help in lightening post-acne dark spots.
