A gentle face scrub makes sure you get rid of all the dead skin cells on the surface. While face masks are helpful, they won’t necessarily be great for getting rid of dead skin on your face. That’s why its a good idea to start with a gentle DIY face scrub.

This can be as simple as combining one small spoon of sugar with one small spoon of your favorite natural honey. Once you mix them together and rub it all over your face in gentle circular motions, you’ll feel it exfoliating your skin and leaving you with baby soft skin after rinsing.

Once you are done with your face scrub, you can then move on to applying your favorite face mask.

Toning the skin is important for a more even complexion. I became obsessed with toners and have created my own DIY face toner with a with hazel base. It does wonders for the overall evenness of my skin and helps blurr acne marks.
