It is better than those salt granules and oats. There are plenty of benefits of using this scrub for this purpose. This recipe also doesn’t cost much.

Honey and sugar are the main ingredients of this recipe. Honey consists of 18 amino acids with antiseptic and antibiotic properties in it. It is also rich in vitamins and mineral and so if used, it can heal wounds and also moisturize your skin very well. Sugar has soothing properties.

Its coarse texture helps in exfoliation and buffing away all those dead cells on your skin. It helps greatly in giving you the natural glowing skin. There are many more ingredients that work as exfoliation ingredients such as Epsom salt, oats, baking soda, etc. but sugar has proven itself to be the best of all.

Now coming to the other ingredients, we are choosing an oil in this recipe in order to moisturize skin well. We know well that oils are great for skin. They provide natural glow to the skin. So, based on your skin, choose the one you like or suits you best. Mostly extra virgin olive oil or sweet almond oil are preferred but coconut oil isn’t in the least number.
