CHEAP Beauty Tip! Exfoliate your face!

I tend to have dry skin on my face. Especially in the winter. It is flaky and NOT flattering when mixed with my makeup. Yes, I do use a moisturizer and a makeup that is right for my skin type...but that doesn't always make a difference when you have a less than smooth surface to begin with. I also tend to get that really annoying acne on my forehead. The kind that feels and looks like medium grain sandpaper. Well, here is a beauty tip for both of these problems and it REALLY works and it is CHEAP! I have tried all sorts of face scrubs. Expensive ones, cheap ones and I am not saying that they don't work or I don't like them, but this works better and I like it best. Now, this is so easy when I tell you, you will won't work, that is too simple. But it does! All you need is a bowl, table sugar and water. Wash your face BEFORE you do this so it is free of oils and makeup. Put about a 1/8-1/4 cup sugar in a bowl and add a LITTLE water so it is like a thick paste, yet wet all the way through the sugar. You don't want the sugar to be dry. Now just rub in small circles all over your face and neck. Get those trouble areas well like your forehead, around nose and your chin. Then rinse away! So simple. If you see blood, you are rubbing too hard. :) If you can not feel any friction you are not rubbing hard enough. :) Do this two days in a row if you have a problem with the forehead acne or dry skin, then twice a week for maintenance. Just do it twice a week if you want glowing skin but don't need to work off some dry stuff or acne. It really works, and well. I do it right in the shower. Makes your skin SO smooth. PLUS it tastes good if you get some in your mouth on accident. LOL. Give it a try! You have nothing to lose unless you are allergic to table sugar. :)

P.S. There is no reason why men can't do this as well!
