I make this simple homemade 4 ingredient lemon facial scrub about once a week. It is so easy to throw together, and it leaves my skin very soft, smooth, & exfoliated.Juice lemon. Add the sugar and stir. Apply to face in circular motions and gently allow the sugar to scrub your skin. Let sit for a few minutes. Use a hot wash cloth, lay on face to steam for a minute, then use it to wipe of scrub. Rinse well & moisturize. Use once a week.
1. 2 Tablespoons of honey
2. 1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
3. 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
4. 1 1/2 Tablespoon of Sugar (Brown or White)
This makes enough for several applications, but in time the sugar dissolves, so I usually let my girls know that I have homemade lemon sugar scrub and they love doing “facials” with it. They end up putting lots around their lips so they can lick it off. Lemonade! It is delicious and ends up being a great lip scrub, too! You could also take leftovers in the bath with you for a great body scrub.
I put some of the mixture into my palm, and rub in circular motions all over my face. It feels so good! I love a good scrub! I then let it sit on my skin for 60 seconds. Then I get a wash cloth nice and warm, and wash the mixture off completely. I will often follow with a dab of coconut oil for moisture.
Lemons do have a lightening quality about them and I notice it has faded black heads that I have on my chin. It is also great for breakouts. It seems to really help with blackheads and just clearing the junk out of my pores. I love it!
