Brown Sugar Scrub

My first Boat Beauty post! I thought I would do this much sooner... but then there was that sinus infection and blah, blah, blah (is how I felt).

The Brown Sugar Scrub is a wonderful exfoliant. It has only two ingredients, feels great, and tastes good if you get it in your mouth. So don't be afraid to exfoliate your lips!

For a facial scrub, you will need...

3 T. Brown Sugar
1 T. Milk
Note: You can experiment with amounts/proportions to create the consistency that feels best to your skin. You can also increase the recipe for a full body scrub.

1) Mix brown sugar and milk together in a small bowl. Set aside.

2) Gently clean face with warm water and mild soap, or with your favorite cleanser.

3) Leaning over sink, gently massage scrub over entire face, avoiding eyes and lids (but including lips!). I like to gently scrub/massage for a couple minutes, scooping more scrub as needed.

4) Let scrub remain on face for 3-5 minutes, then gently rinse completely and pat dry.

PROS: My face always feels very smooth and slightly firmer after this scrub.
CONS: If you get it in your hair, it will make a sticky tangle.
