please wear a mask

by Jaeszha Richardson

During this difficult time, all we’ve been seeing is people wearing masks to protect themselves from COVID-19. However, that isn’t the only mask you could wear on a daily basis. With life slowly returning to normal, a little self-care for yourself wouldn’t hurt. Below is one of my favorite DIY face mask that can be used on all skin types.

Using a sugar scrub on your face is very simple. Just follow these 5 steps:

  1. Make sure your face and neck are clean.

  2. Mix a small amount of scrub with a few drops of water.

  3. Gently apply over the face and neck with small circular movements (up to 1 minute).

  4. Rinse your face and neck with warm water.

  5. Pat dry your skin and apply a facial mask or your usual moisturizer.

**When used on hands or other parts of the body you can be a little more aggressive.**
