Tired of dry flaky skin? Tired of spending money on face products that don't live up to their hype? Me too! A few years ago while I was interning at a television news station in Eastern Washington during a brutally cold winter, I had quite an issue with dry, flaky skin. I tried anything and everything and anything including expensive weekly facials. Some worked better than others; but those that worked were only temporary at best. You know how it goes. You leave for work feeling pretty good about yourself until a few hours later when you catch your reflection in the mirror. YIKES...for me, this was a huge deal! At the time, I was trying to put together an on-camera demo tape, which is required for a television job; and looking good for the camera was a requirement. I stumbled on this honey-lime mask/scrub purely by accident. It's simple, inexpensive, all natural and you probably have everything you need for it in your kitchen. It is hands-down, the only scrub/mask I use that not only exfoliates, but also hydrates.
1 Lime or Lime Juice*
Brown or White Sugar
*I have substituted lemon juice for lime but it's more stringent and can be irritating to the skin if you're sensitive.
