  • YES!!!

    You can use brown sugar or white sugar. Which ever one you like better. There are some people who are crazy about brown sugar because it is natural. Use some olive oil just like cheekycherub says and some people use a dab of honey if you want to pre-mix it to keep it together, but I put extra virgin olive oil on my face then grab some brown sugar and begin rubbing gently. Wash off the sugar then wipe off the oil with something you do not care than stains. It is oil.

    AND......your face is smooth and rosy after the redness goes away.....haha. I hope you respond well to it. Some people will rash.
