DIY Honey exfoliant

In a small bowl mix together:
1 Tablespoon of honey (local is best but any real honey will work)
A few drops of jojoba oil (or olive)
Baking soda (enough to make a thick paste)

Directions:
Get your face wet and scoop a small amount of the mix into the palm of your hand and add a few drops of water
Using circular motions gently scrub your face with this mix and allow it to sit for a few minutes.

This is the one thing I have found that helps clean and smooth my skin in the summer, my face always feels rough in the summer due to a sensitivity to both heat and sweat…I make this and wash my face with it every other day and my skin stays smooth and after the first week breakout free.
If I slack on it I know within a few days as the texture of my face becomes rougher…also since you are exfoliating be extra sure to put on a hypoallergenic sunscreen as any exfoliation will make you more sun sensitive.
