Have you ever used sugar as a beauty product? If not, try and bring sweetness on your skin. We may not need sugar in our body but once you learn the other good use of sugar, you will need sugar a lot…
There are many surprising natural skin care ingredients/products hiding in your kitchen and garden. At present, I am using more than 20 kitchen products to retain and enhance my beauty. Skin is your largest organ and can absorb just about anything that is put on it. We always think about what we eat but hardly think about those commercial beauty products. I always prefer to use natural ingredients from my kitchen because they work really well and are chemical free and simple to use. I have a list of my favorite healthy beauty products that will leave you glowing from the inside out and I would like to start with Sugar as it is very common to have in almost every kitchen.
Sugar is actually pretty useful, from your face down to your toes and can be used few ways.
1. Smooth your lips.
Put a little water on your finger, then dip it in granulated sugar and gently apply it in a circular motion to lips to exfoliate them. This is the perfect DIY trick to do in a pinch when your lips are dry or flaky.
2. Soften your skin while you exfoliate.
Mix a cup of brown sugar with a few bananas to create a moisturizing body scrub that smells sweet and leaves your skin looking lovely.
3. Give your body a pretty glow.
Need to prep for sunless tanning? Mix sugar with oil to create a body scrub that works great on your back, legs, and shoulders, allowing you to get the perfect glow.
4. Make your feet feel less rough.
Mix sugar and peppermint oil, then scrub the mixture onto the bottom of your feet while in the shower for an at-home pedicure scrub that sloughs off dead cells and dryness. The peppermint oil has a cooling effect on your skin, making it perfect for those hot summer months.
5. Clean grimy hands.
If you’ve been busy doing other DIY projects and find it’s hard to get tough substances like grease and dirt off your hands at the end of the day, add sugar to soap. It acts as a mild abrasive, allowing you to remove any thick gunk without using harsh chemicals.
6. Get a smoother shave on your legs.
Exfoliate dead skin cells by applying slightly wet granulated brown sugar beforehand in a circular motion, then rinsing. This helps the razor get a closer cut. Bonus: You can tell your favorite guy with a beard to do the same.
7. Keep your hands looking young.
Want gorgeous hands that look youthful and fresh? Mix a cup of brown sugar with 1/3 of a cup of olive oil plus a vitamin E capsule to give yourself an at-home manicure scrub. Rinse, let your hands dry, and you’re ready to apply some fantastic nail art.
