Need a quick me up? Then head to the kitchen to mix up a batch of honey and brown sugar exfoliating scrubs. They won't make those bags under your eyes magically disappear, but you might be surprised at how much better they make your skin feel.
Honey is a humectant, which draws moisture from the air to your skin and brown sugar is a terrific exfoliating agent that removes those dead skin cells that make your skin look and feel dry and flaky. Together these two ingredients make a winning team. There's no easier way to pamper your self and feel invigorated!
