.:BEAUTY TIP TUESDAY:. Cinnamon Sugar Facial Scrub

Fall is here and I’m sure you’re already getting excited about all of the upcoming holiday parties and festive occasions that are in the weeks ahead. Not to mention the excitement of noticing the leaves changing colors, the brisk mornings and the aromas that fill the air to remind us that Fall is indeed here!

In the spirit of the season, I’d like to share with you a really simple facial scrub that will exfoliate your skin and it smells good too so using it a few times of the week will an indulgent treat!

Cinnamon Sugar Facial Scrub

*Makes a nice amount to save and use later*

1 tablespoon of sugar

1 teaspoon of cinnamon (for a one time use only use a pinch of cinnamon)

1-2 drops of your favorite liquid facial cleanser

Mix your cinnamon and sugar in an easy to grip container and one that you can store for later use. Lather up your skin with the facial wash. Pour the cinnamon sugar mixture into the palms of your wet hands and work into your skin. Don’t worry it won’t go anywhere, the mixture will cling to your hands until you reach your face. You can be the judge of how much cinnamon and sugar that you want to work into your skin based on your sensitivity.

NOTE: If you don’t have a liquid facial cleanser, use your regular cleansing agent (bar of soap, cleansing pads, foaming cleanser, etc) to create suds on your face and work the cinnamon and sugar into your skin. I personally use a shea butter bar of soap so I typically lather up my skin and go from there.

Remove the cinnamon sugar scrub with warm water and keep rinsing until the entire mixture has been removed from your face. Pat dry. Your skin will feel smooth and it will smell oh so good. It’ll smell Fall-a-licious!!!

Be sure to immediately follow with a moisturizer because with any combination of cleanser and exfoliators, your skin will need to be replenished with some type of moisture.  Cleansers naturally strip the skin of its oils and exfoliators slough away those dead skin cells so do add some moisture back to the skin with a moisturizer or a Vitamin E capsule. If using this scrub in the morning and you’ll be headed out for a day in the sun, add that spf to your skin as well.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and feel free to switch it up from time to time by adding other spices like nutmeg or other Fall inspired spices. This recipe is safe enough to use every day but at least treat yourself to a scrub at least twice a week.

Stay Glamorous!
