Sweet Cider Facial Scrub Formula
If summer sun and fun left your skin feeling dry and in need of nourishment, this easy formula is just for you. Kitchen-cupboard ingredients give gentle exfoliation to remove dead cells and alpha-hydroxy acids to replenish your skin.
When I tried this, I couldn’t believe the instant glowing, softening results. And it tastes and smells so sweet, just like the cider that helps to make it!
Cider contains malic acid and the sugar–besides being a gentle exfoliant–contains glycolic acid. Both these acids are alpha-hydroxy treats for your skin.
1/8 cup granulated sugar
1-3 teaspoons apple cider
Place sugar in a bowl and add cider until mixture is a frosting-like consistency. Scoop mixture into hands and gently rub on face, using circular motions.
2. Rinse face with warm water and pat dry.
