Brown Sugar Scrub for Beautiful Skin!
Home Remedy Ingredients:
- Brown Sugar - 1/4 Cup
- Honey - 1 Tablespoon
- Apple Cider Vinegar - 1 Teaspoon
Mix a quarter-cup of brown sugar with one tablespoon of honey and one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Gently scrub this mixture into your face and any skin that needs to be exfoliated and restored. This occasional body scrub is all natural, inexpensive, and incredibly effective!
[YEA] 11/20/2011: Organic Queen from Chandler, Az: "I wanted to share my results of the brown sugar scrub for the face. I almost forgot about how powerful this facial is, I did adjust mine by adding 1 tsp. dark buckwheat honey, 1 tbsp brown sugar, himalayan sea salt or you can use any organic sea salt, & a 1/2 tsp of spring water to form a nice liquid paste. Apply liberally to face & neck. I left it on approx. 20 min, and before washing off completely- gave a gentle scrub all over the face, not too rough.. Then wash w/lukewarm water and pat dry. The end results are stunning, its the best natural exfolialtion to remove dead skin cells. The only other item I put on is grapeseed oil-what a combo! But don't overdo it, exfoliate only 2x a week or even once a week to give your skin time to rejuvenate. I wish all the best and good luck."
07/01/2011: Relish from Mumbai, India: "Hi I am looking for Brown Sugar Face mask recipe but unable to find it through the search Engine. Has it been deleted? Can someone share it? Thanks a lot."
[YEA] 06/17/2009: Tavora from Brooklyn, NY: "Just wanted to thank the person who created/came up with the brown sugar facial scrub (not the one with glycerin)! I tried it last night and this morning and literally - right after rinsing my skin - I was glowing! I looked ten years younger! No kidding! (I'm 30) Because all my focus has been geared towards resolving all my other health issues - my skin care regimen has taken a back seat. I'm so glad I decided to try this. I also plan to use this scrub as an all over body treatment. It's amazing how a recipe this simple could produce such incredible results! No more overpriced and chemically saturated products for me!!! My skin hasn't looked this good since I was 18!!
Thank you again! :0)"
11/24/2009: Samina from Birmingham, Uk replies: "hi, i just wanted to know how to make the brown sugar scrub for the facial? i suffer from eczema and have started the oil pulling yesterday, i tried the ACV but that tastes horrible."
[YEA] 01/31/2007: Cheryl from Denver, CO: "Years ago a plastic surgeon friend told me that I should use an exfoliant like the brown sugar shown on this site and then put vegetable lard (Crisco) on my face, hands and feet three times a week. It is an all natural moisturizer. I am 46 and look much younger than my age. It works."
[YEA] 11/03/2006: Alexis from NY: "A few years ago my cousin and i were talking about skin care. I always had clear skin and always got compliments on it. A few years ago though, my skin started to change. It wasn't glowing, and i was getting more and more blackheads, on my forehead, around my mouth, and of course, my nose. My cousin had given me the recipe of this great at home exfoliator she got from a friend. Cream facial cleanser, like dove, mixed with a good amount of white household sugar. After you mix these 2 ingredients together wet face and scrub for 3-4 minutes. Pat Dry, and then apply clear tape all over entire face (this will take off all the dead skin cells you just scrubbed off!). Peel tape off, you will see all the dead skin cells, it's amazing...follow this up with a good facial moisturizer. I do this regimen twice a week, it works amazing! This regimen cured my blackhead and brought the glow back to my skin."
[YEA] 10/28/2006: Jen from San Diego: "I've had stubborn oily, break out skin issues. I have stopped using expensive creams and cleansers on my skin. I have been using a sugar scrub to exfoliate and salt to banish the acne. Never has my skin looked so fresh."
[YEA] 03/02/2006: M from Cincinnati OH: "I tried the one about making your face feel so soft and smooth by using the brown sugar and honey and ACV and it feels so Wonderful. I have a question about what kind of ACV the kind you buy in a bottle at the grocery store for using for energy and weight loss or is there another kind recommended?"Replies
06/21/2008: Royce from Milburn, Oklahoma replies: "To answer a question for M from cincinnati Oh, I have to name a product name. I have only found one type of apple cider vinegar that matches ted description of the real thing it contains the mother and when it burns it leaves the ash, it looks like dirty water and if you held it uo to the sun light in a clear jar its cloudy, you need to shake it up before each use it is not distilled and pretty and red it is organic and natural. it is called _____ apple cider vinegar. it is very strong so dont use too much make sure to buffer it with the b soda because if your body does not contain enough alkalizing minerals or bicarbonates you may make your symptoms worse."
[YEA] 11/21/2005: Anelisa from Mesa , AZ: "Brown Sugar face and body scrub:a brown sugar face scrub gives me a wonderful glow and everything you need to make it is in your kitchen. this first recipe is for the face scrub. one fourth of a cup of brown sugar, one tablespoon of honey, and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar mix well apply it to the face and gently scrub in circular motions, my friends say "it's like micro dermabrasion for no cost". Also since the holidays are coming up make a bigger batch and add a tea spoon of "pumpkin pie spice" to the mixture it's all natural and it makes a lovely yummy holiday body scrub and you'll be glowing smelling sweet and ready for all those christmas events you may not even need to apply perfume."Replies
08/06/2011: Hannah from London, Kent replies: "Hey thanks for the suggestion. I just used a mix of cane sugar, little of the honey, an added ground almond and acv, and carefully used it on my face. As I was using it, I really felt there was something different here to the typical 'face masks' you buy in the shops. The results were immediate and im amazed! My skins smoother, the large pores on on and around my nose have almost gone and even the dark circles around my eyes have lifted! Thank god I found this recipe!"
09/10/2012: Citygirl27 from Richardson, Tx, Usa replies: "Is regular light brown sugar fine, like the kind that you can pack into a measuring cup? or do I need the type with the large granules like turbinado brown sugar?"
Brown Sugar, Egg White, H2O2 Lift
[YEA] 09/09/2012: Cairo from Philadelphia, Pa: "Have to sing my praises for Anjeanette's Brown Sugar/H2O/Egg White Lift regimen. The softness is almost immediate. After three days, my skin was clearer and brighter. After a weak, the glow seemed permanent. I can't help but touch my face and neck during the day just to feel how ridiculously soft it is. I'm 30, ex-smoker, always sleep deprived, and have never really taken care of my skin; I work with teenagers who say they're envious of my skin now. I'm really bad at sticking to skincare remedies, but I will never go back to just washing my face. Try this for a few days. You will be sold."
[YEA] 10/10/2006: Anjeanette from Chicago: "I have combined some of the secrets from Earth Clinic and added my own secret to come up with the ultimate facial!
First, cleanse your skin with a gentle soap like Dove or Palmers. Next, do the brown sugar scrub listed below (1/4 brown sugar, 1 tblsp ACV, 1 tblsp honey). After that, take a cotton ball and apply hydrogen peroxide to your face. This will decrease bacteria on your skin and also lighten dark spots. Take the white of an egg and apply to your whole face. Eggs are full of protein which is what our skin is comprised of. This is called the instant face lift. I learned this from a former drag queen! It tightens and lifts your skin! Leave the egg white on for 30 minutes and watch the magic! Take a wet face towel and gently wipe off the egg white. Follow this with a good moisturizer that contains sunblock as our skin gets a lot of damage from uv rays.
At night before bed, cleanse your skin with soap and apply the hydrogen peroxide again. Sleep on soft, clean pillowcases as they hold a lot of germs and dead skin cells. After about 3 days you will look 10 years younger! My skin has no more pores, my dark patches are gone, and my skin is the softest it has ever been. Now I have 20 yr old guys asking me out and I am 32 now. They think I am the same age as they are. When I tell them my real age, they freak out and say that is impossible. I wind up having to show them my ID. I get carded at clubs and for alcohol now and I love it! Just try it and you will thank God that you did!"Replies
[YEA] 10/15/2006: Karin from Munich, Germany replies: "YEA! Have tried this facial and worked beautifully! Face looks clean and has finally a glow. It also looks much thinner. Thanks Anjeanette for the tip and also earthclinic.com to make all this information available around the world. Keep up the good work."
10/03/2008: Shumaila Bhatti from Multan, Pakistan replies: "i have freckles and i m asian, i just wana know that i can use this remedy at my face to cure the freckles esp hydrogen peroxide is good and not harmful for my freckles. pls must help me abot this, i m really tense so help me our pls. i did not use any remedy till yet, just visit ur site but likes ur remedy so much."
[YEA] 07/31/2011: Deborah from New Orleans, Louisiana replies: "OMG! I absolutely LOVE this formula! I'm close to 60- so my skin is definitely in need of repair.... This made it feel like a newborn's behind! I will be doing this on a regular basis and recommend it for anyone who wants fresher skin, tighter skin, and color! Thanks so much for this tip!"
07/31/2011: Tami from Mocksville, Nc, Usa replies: "How often do you apply the egg white remedy? And how often do you use the HP? Will the HP fade brown spots (not related to freckles)on your face? Thanks a bunch to all to contribute to this site."
08/03/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "What strength hydrogen peroxyde do you use?"
Brown Sugar, Olive Oil
[YEA] 11/26/2012: Anu from Chicago, Il: "For dry, chapped hands an effectve remedy: Take few tsps of brown sugar in a bowl. Pour 2-3 tsps of olive oil. Apply it on your hands. Wash it with luke warm water(do not wash with soap, just rinse enough to get rid of the sugar)you will feel your hands really soft. use as often as possible, I keep it beside my kitchen sink, so that I can use it after washing the utensils."Replies

Brown Sugar, Rolled Oats, ACV and Baking Powder Scrub
[YEA] 11/10/2006: Painfree from Oregon: "I made a recipe for the face and body skin. I suppose I could be called a chemist, for I bake and cook. As I concocted up this remedy, I wrote it down as I went. I did not use any measuring spoons. Only one cereal bowl and the use of my clean hands.
Here is the recipe I named it: Natures Bowl of Beauty Gentle Scrub
(its the balm)
Fill the inside of your hands palm with brown sugar and place in bowl.
Sprinkle baking powder lightly over brown sugar in bowl.
Use half a palm full of rolled oats (not the quick type) and place over brown sugar, baking powder.
Add 2 caps of ACV ( It will foam slightly) Then drizzle lightly with extra light olive oil ( I suppose coconut oil would do, I did not have any)
Add 1/2 teaspoon of honey ( I used royal jelly from health food store)
Stir all these ingredients to make a nice paste. That is it, you have just made a nice healthy scrub. Since it is slightly abrasive, do not get it in the eyes.
To use: Lightly dampen skin with warm water, then place the gentle scrub on your face. Using your fingertips only, (no wash cloths) gently massage into facial skin. Do that until you feel a nice tingle and no more. Rinse with warm water, and end with cooler water and let air dry.
It feels so good, and it tastes great if you get it in your mouth, I did a little because if used it to gently scrub my lips. ( but not around my eyes, the skin is too delicate there.
I like this recipe I made because, yes, it tastes great, it is safe, it is not a soap, and they are the ingredients I and others are learning all about on this site for great health. ( well not sure about the oatmeal part, but I chose it instead of salt because of the natural oils in it) ( I also chose the baking powder because it felt softer, and less abrasive.)
My skin feels so soft. I did the nose wrinkle test after my skin air oxidized, and it was not tight at all.
I used it on my arms, elbows, legs and knees for the dry patches, since the weather has cooled down, and my skin needs more moisture.
I did not use moisturizer after. I tested makeup over it ladies, and it went on smooth. Men, this is a sweet concoction, you will love it too. It may be too abrasive for young peoples skin. Common sense will let you know. This is great to do, (if you are not in the bath or shower) while sipping on your acv tea. If you feel that your skin is still too dry in places, just touch the inside of the oil cap with your clean finger, and that is just enough to use. I am going to keep reading and learning. I have never felt this great since I can remember way back even in my childhood when I was nauseated and missed much school.
Ok, now I would like feedback on this recipe that I made, please because I do not want to lead any one wrong with this recipe. Thank you for reading, and thank you always for the builders of this site and all who are helping families grow together in great health and in love. Once we learn how to get out of pain, we must also remember to eat right and learn which things are safe even for brushing teeth, cleansing skin, washing clothes, dishes and cleaning our homes, and planting gardens and finding out which things are best for natural pesticides. I did at one time use pickle juice around the roses to keep them coral, and not get pink. I also used egg shells ( soaked in water) and tuna liquids for plants. Diluted of course, the tuna one outside. This site is a blessing from God, for we are all gathered together here, learning and getting out of pain together, and so lets keep our voices out here so that we can claim back our world and Gods children, free of pain and diseases and conditions. Read, Read, Read and get smart. And, let your mind, soul and body be your guide, amen. I love you all."Replies

JUST A QUICK QUESTION~ DOES ANYONE HAVE A RECOMMENDATION FOR OLD ACNE SCARS THAT STILL SHOW THROUGH MY MAKEUP A LITTLE? I DON'T GET ACNE ANYMORE AND I'D LIKE TO GET RID OF THE SCARRING OR AT LEAST HAVE THEM NOT AS NOTICEABLE. THANX"
[YEA] 07/06/2008: Ashley from Canal Fulton, OH replies: "oh my god. that was the most amazing thing i've ever put on my face. i didn't have rolled oats, but i just used regular kind and it's just as good i think. i have about 4 zits on my chin. they're kind of big too. they look HORRIBLE. :| my skin is rrrrrrreally dry around those areas and my nose, so whenever i put my makeup on, it shows the dry skin so well and it looks terrible. i used your scrub, and i swear it already took so much dead/dry skin off my face. i have a date tomorrow, and i really don't want my face looking HORRIBLE. so hopefully this'll make my skin a bit better. thanks a ton=]"
01/23/2009: Robin from Rocky Ridge, Ohio replies: "Oatmeal is often used as an exfoliant in scrubs for the face or the body. It is suggested to put rolled oats in a muslin drawstring bag and hang under the faucet of the tub then use the filled bag as a sponge to wash with. The oat "milk" has soothing properties for the skin. Another tip would be to run the uncooked old fashioned oats through a food processor or blender to grind them down to a granular size.
Sometimes I make a similar scrub and add black strap molasses or a whole egg to the mixture.
Also, baking soda is an alkaline substance that dissolves grease and oil; AC Vinegar is an acid which will exfoliate and the skin prefers an acid ph. Combining the two together neutralizes the acid and the alkaline properties of the individual ingredients.
Since I'm a little older and do not have oily skin, I would not use the baking soda and reap the benefits of the vinegar as a hydroxy acid type of facial. Those with oily skin might add the baking soda to dissolve excess oil and leave out the vinegar. Otherwise, there is enough abrasive qualities to the sugar and the oats to help remove dead skin cells. Blessings, Robin"
09/14/2012: Sue M. from Worden, Il, Usa: "I was reading over the whole "beautiful skin remedies" posted here on EC and I had forgotten so many of them. I was looking for a simple combination of natural products to use for cleansing my face. But, I ran across an old post of Lisa's where she was responding to a contributor that had used raw organic cacao butter for a moisturizer. I would love any input or knowledge that anyone might have on the cacao butter. And, what they use naturally for a facial cleanser. Thanks!"
[YEA] 05/02/2006: Crystal from Post Falls, Idaho: "For healthier skin try eating cantaloupe. it is said to give your skin a naturally beautiful, sun kissed glow."Replies
06/09/2008: Breah from Seattle, Washington replies: "Actually cantaloupe doesn't cure anything specifically, water does. Even with at least eight glasses a day, you most likely are not getting as much of the vitamins and minerals as you could. Drink truly filtered water, not Brita water. I use water filtered by a gravity filter which is guaranteed to remove all harmful chemicals and bacteria and more. I then water my organic vegetables and fruits with it, and they do wonders! No aftertastes, bigger, healthier plants, and cantaloupe so juicy it may seem to be a cure."
[YEA] 06/23/2008: Olivia from Brooklyn, New York: "I had hated castor oil for many years because growing up in South America it was a quarterly cleansing ritual by my mother and many others. This website has helped me to see castor oil in a new way. I have been applying it occasionally to my face at night. Every time I do so, I absolutely love the way I look in the morning. My skin looks toned and fresh. Yesterday I attended a function and saw a woman whom I had not seen for about two years. She kept saying "you have to tell me what you are doing, you look ten years younger. I have also been doing facial exercises. She asked her daughter for my number because she said she is determined to find out what I had done to my face. Many people were in the room and she was quite vocal so I just replied that I had been taking care of myself. I will tell her privately. I think the castor oil definitely helped my skin plus the facial exercises helped tone the muscles under the skin. I used to hate the mirror, now I glance at it ever so often. Thanks for the castor oil tip."Replies
