I’ve been to numerous high end salons that feature Brown Sugar Scrubs, Mud, and even Chocolate. The treatments are amazing. Leaving your skin feeling soft, moisturized, and healthy. The problem is, they charge you so much money for one of those treatments.   A Brown Sugar Facial can run anywhere from $90- $150. A Chocolate Facial and Body Wrap can go from $100 – $250. When you get into the ingredients of the scrubs and wraps, it’s nothing more than things you can get at your local grocery store.

Speaking of which, have you seen the prices of Brown Sugar Scrubs in stores. A POCKETBOOK OUCH!

So over the past year I’ve been making my very own homemade face and body scrubs. Getting all the same wonderful benefits at a fraction of the cost.

If you’ve ever had a facial scrub before, then you know that they’re simply amazing. After just one application, you can have fresher, healthier looking skin because of the way sugar scrubs exfoliate those dead skin cells.

– Crush the Brown Sugar to make it as fine as possible.  Your using this scrub on your face, so you want to make sure you’re exfoliating your face, not  up your face.

The moisturizing benefits of this scrub helps tremendously during those cold winter months.

  1. I love DIYs and occasionally mix up my own Lemon-Sugar Facial Scrub using sugar, lemon juice and olive oil. Honey should be added but I dont think my face likes honey so I skip that ingredient. Works just as well as any other store bought product 🙂 Can you tell me what the purpose of the parsley is?

    • There are dozens of different ways to use parsley for skin. Some of them depend only on the user’s preference, while others have to do with skin type. For instance, those with combination skin that tend to develop acne may want to muddle some parsley in a bowl with the back of a spoon. This bruises the leaves and releases the juices. The user may then squeeze some honey over the bruised leaves and stir the mixture until the honey turns green. Honey is hydrating and antibacterial, so it is usually a very nourishing treatment for blemished skin. Especially Mauka honey.
      Parsley is rich in Vitamin K and C. It really helps with blemishes, evening out your skin tone, and conditioning the skin. Hope that helps.

      • So guess what? It only took me 8 months to finally get around to this!! hehe #betterlatethannever I kept thinking I shd use fresh parsley, but a few weeks ago I bought this giant bottle of parsley flakes and I thought, to hell with fresh parsley! I used the flakes 🙂 I no longer battle with acne but I’ll be happy with whatever positive effect it has on my face 🙂
