The DIY honey brown sugar scrub is a sticky situation.

Add more honey if your scrub is hard to stir.
Making your brown sugar scrub runny makes it easier for you to scoop and apply to the skin.
Another good thing about brown sugar honey scrub is that it is versatile.
You can use it on your face, lips, and whole body.

Benefits of honey for skincare.
Honey has several benefits for the skin, so it’s a popular ingredient in skincare products.
Adding honey to your beauty routine can improve your skin’s texture and complexion.
Below are the benefits of using honey for skincare.
Honey is a natural moisturizer, making it an excellent addition to your morning or nighttime skincare routine.
As a natural humectant, honey locks in moisture and keeps your skin hydrated and supple.
When used topically, it forms a protective barrier that prevents moisture loss and dryness.
It also helps the skin glow naturally.
With age, our skin tends to lose its elasticity, which results in wrinkles and fine lines.
But honey’s anti-aging properties help combat early signs of aging.
Regular use of honey on the skin promotes collagen production, improves elasticity, and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
Honey can be used as a natural treatment for acne as it contains antibacterial properties.
When applied to the face, honey gently exfoliates, removes dead skin, and unclogs your pores.
Which reduces the chances of breakouts.
Also, its anti-inflammatory properties help soothe the skin, fade dark spots, and promote a brighter complexion.
Honey may help soothe sunburn.
Spending time in the sun may cause sunburn.
Luckily, using honey on the skin can soothe and relieve the pain and redness.
And also speed up the healing process.
So remember to apply honey to your skin after exposure to relieve and prevent dryness.
