So here's one of my favorite all-natural beauty tricks. I make my own facial scrub out of equal parts honey and cornmeal. That's it. I tend to do 2 tablespoons of each, mix them up and put them in a container to keep in the bathroom. This time of year, near the end of winter when my skin just seems to really need some brightening, I remix it thoroughly and scoop out about a teaspoon, rub it first between my hands, and then rub it all over my damp face. Then I rinse it off and follow by washing my face. Once I dry it, my skin looks a lot brighter and smoother. The honey is said to draw out impurities from the skin, and of course the cornmeal sloughs away dead skin cells.
