Honey olive oil scrub

My last post mentioned a lot of good things about honey, so I will let my first tutorial include honey.

Honey olive oil scrub
This scrub is really easy to prepare and actually very good for your skin, especially acne prone skin. I like this scrub because it doesn't make you skin dry when you're done scrubbing. When you wash the scrub off, your skin feels soft and moisturized.

First boil water and put some in a big bowl. Put a glass or bowl in the bowl with water, make sure inside the glass doesn't become wet, because you will use salt as scrub particles and salt dilutes in water. Add 2 table spoons of olive oil and let it warm in the glass/bowl. Then add 2 tablespoons of honey and stir. You will notice the honey doesn't dilute in the oil, but that's fine. Take the glass out the bowl with water and stir. I transferred the mixture from the glass to a bowl, because it was easier to stir in it. I made sure that bowl was also warm and that inside the bowl was dry. Then add salt as much as you like and stir.. When you stop stirring again you will see the oil separating from the honey, so right before you use the scrub you should stir well.
Scrub for about 2-3 minutes. Wash the scrub off with warm water (body temperature) and dry your face with a clean towel. Feel your skin, it will be really soft.
After scrubbing you can also leave the mask on your face for a couple of minutes. You will see the oil part from the honey while on your face. But that would not cease the healing powers of both olive oil and honey.
