How to exfoliate your skin with olive oil and sugar

Are you looking for a healthy way to have clean, smooth skin? Try exfoliating it with sugar and olive oil. It's easy and 100% natural!


  • Olive oil (extra virgin if possible)
  • White or brown sugar
  • Hot water (not lukewarm as it will burn you and dry out your skin)


Step 1. Wet your face

Slip a warm washcloth over your face to moisten it.

Step 2. Apply oil

Take some olive oil (extra virgin if possible) and apply a generous layer on your face.

Step 3. Take sugar

Gently spread sugar on your hands.

Step 4. Spread the sugar on your face

Spread the sugar on your cheeks and gently rub it all over your face.

Step 5. Scrub your face

Gently rub the sugar all over your face for 20 to 30 seconds, paying attention to the area around your eyes.

Step 6. Rinse your face

Rinse your face with lukewarm water to remove all the sugar. Your skin will still be covered with oil. Gently wipe your face with the damp washcloth to remove all the oil. Rub very gently!

Step 7. Repeat once a week

Exfoliate your facial skin once a week for healthy, smooth skin without dead cells.


  • Don't use too much sugar, because you will just get it all over the place.
  • Prepare all the materials before you begin. It is not a good idea to walk around with oil on your face looking for sugar.
  • If you rub your skin hard after exfoliating, you will have red areas and burns. Be very gentle.
  • Do not use a new or light-colored glove, as oil will show on them.
  • Your face will be red for a while, but after a few minutes it will return to its normal color and your skin will be smooth.
  • Be very gentle.
  • When you're done, use witch hazel as a natural tonic.


  • If you rub hard, you will have red skin for a while.
  • There may be some cleaning to do at the end.
  • This method is not recommended for people with very fair skin, as it will be very red for a long time.
