Sugar & Olive Oil

Sugar & Olive Oil

Treat yourself to an exfoliation that is both moisturizing and smoothing, using just two ingredients most of us already have in the kitchen. I take care to use only the best on my skin, such as Artistry cosmetics; and this part of my beauty routine is deliciously soothing and simple. I use this scrub right before bedtime, 2-3 times per week.

For a scrub that is both cleansing and smoothing, I massage a small amount of sugar and olive oil on my face, focusing on my T-zone. I rinse off with a splash of water, and pat dry with a towel, taking care to leave a moisturizing coat of olive oil for a deep, healing, overnight moisturizer. (If you have sensitive or oily skin, adjust accordingly. I have combination/normal skin.)

This also works nicely on the rest of the body, in fact can substitute as a shaving cream for the legs after the sugar is rinsed off. You will need to clean out the bathtub each time to prevent oil buildup.

Enjoy! You are worth it!
