The cold winter air combined with dry indoor heat are a killer on my skin! I have highly sensitive skin and have very little luck with store bought facial creams and scrubs. My latest discovery has been scrubs and masks made with- you guessed it, extra-virgin olive oil!
Step 1 - Gather and measure the following
1 T brown sugar
1/2 T olive oil
(really! that's it!)
Remove (don't scrub) sugar with a warm, wet washcloth.
You may find you have too much scrub.
I highly suggest you use the left overs on your (probably) neglected tootsies!
After my mini-facial, I like to bask in a little steam.
Unlike many nasty oils found in many store-bought products, olive oil (high in antioxidants and Vitamin E) won't clog your pores and trap in the dirt and suffocate your skin. The skin is able to breathe and the steam opens your pores and leaves you feeling very refreshed!
