Homemade facial scrub

At one point in my life when I had a lot of free time, and by a lot I mean hours and hours. I researched a lot on homemade recipes and recently decided to try some of what I remember out and tell you about them. For those of you who like facial scrubs but do not want to spend a lot of money getting a facial at a spa, you definitely have to try this. I know a lot of people usually just mix 2 of the ingredients, but I like to add a little extra. Here is how I do mine.

Homemade facial scrub - sugar and honey

What you need:
    - Honey
    - Brown sugar
    - Olive oil (awesome for all skin types not just dry skin)
    - Lemon juice (lightens and brightens the skin)

    - Mix 1 tablespoon warm olive oil with 2 table spoons of brown sugar.
    - Add 1 tablespoon of honey.
    - 1 teaspoon lemon juice.
    - Mix well until a paste is formed.
    - Apply to clean damp face and gently scrub using circular motion for 1-2 minutes
    - Rinse off with warm water.

When making the mixture, you can change the proportion a bit, depending on the amount of scrub you need at the time. I like to mix less first, then if I feel it will not be enough, I can always add some more.

Have you tried this facial scrub before? What did you think?
