How To Do Sugar Facial
Things Required
  • White Granulated Sugar
  • Mild Cleanser/ Face Wash
  • Facial Toner
  • Cotton Ball
  • Clean Towel
  • Moisturizer
  • Water
  • Apply a mild cleanser on your face. Wait for one minute and then wipe the cleanser with a clean cotton ball. Another option is to clean your face with a soap-free face wash. This will help remove the makeup, if any, from your face. Dry your face, using a clean towel.
  • It is the time to apply a facial toner. Dampen a cotton ball with toner and apply it on your face, in circular motion. This will clear the leftover traces of the cleanser.
  • Now, add one teaspoon of white granulated sugar to one teaspoon of facial cleanser. Mix the ingredients well.
  • Apply the cleanser-sugar mixture on your face. Massage your face well, with a circular motion of the hand, for about five minutes, or until the sugar is partly dissolved.
  • Leave the face pack on for ten minutes. Now, rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water.
  • Wash your face again, this time with cold water, so that the pores get tightened. Dry your face with a clean towel.
  • Apply a little amount of moisturizer on your face. Skip this step, if you have oily skin.
  • Use the sugar facial mask twice a week, for best results. Do not exceed the limit, because it might irritate your skin.
  • Do not rub your face too hard while scrubbing, as it will leave red marks.
  • You should always be careful while trying out new things on your face. Cease the use of sugar facial, if it produces acne on your face or causes irritation. Consult a dermatologist, if the condition persists.
  • In case of moderate or severe problem of acne, sugar facial is probably not the best option for you.
  • In case you have prepared sugar facial for more than two uses, store the product in an air tight container, away from direct sunlight. By doing so, you would be able to make use of the facial for a long time.
