Sugar is a preferred exfoliant because it tends not to tear at the skin. When dead skin collects on the surface of skin, it's important to clear it away. This helps clear up clogged pores. When skin isn't exfoliated, it can appear ashy. Ingredients: 2 tbsp sugar 3 tbsp warm water Preparation: - Stir sugar into warm water so that it melts. - Make sure granules are dissolved, otherwise they could tear your skin. - Apply to the face. - Gently massage around the skin. - Rinse with warm water OR I like to take a warm washcloth that's steamed in the microwave. Make sure the washcloth is not too hot.
