I have been having moments with concocting beauty products from the contents of my kitchen! Since I’ve grown up using the kitchen as a space for beauty products, besides being a rather fun activity, it saves a ton of money and a natural, organic way to nourish the skin.
This DIY lemon and sugar scrub beauty obsession can be used on both your face and body.
To use on the face, this scrub works wonderfully for those with acne-prone skin. But, of course, the entire body can benefit from a lemon and sugar exfoliation that leaves skin soft and insanely smooth. It’s also ideal for rough spots like feet, knees, elbows and hands.
Benefits of the Ingredients:
Lemon – A natural source of vitamin C; an ingredient commonly used to lighten sun and age spots and even out skin tone; a natural astringent that tightens pores and brightens the complexion.
Sugar – A natural exfoliator; a natural source of glycolic acid which evens out skin tone, cleans pores, and improves overall skin texture by removing dead, dull skin cells.
Olive Oil – High in vitamin E, which soothes and heals skin; a natural moisturizing ingredient often used for its anti-aging benefits.
Honey – A natural source of anti-oxidants making it a perfect ingredient for age prevention; a natural humectant so it locks water into the skin and keeps the complexion hydrated; the antibacterial properties benefit acne-prone skin by reducing breakouts.
So here is a go to scrub that makes your skin feel like a million bucks with everything available super easily!
You will need:
2 1/2 to 3 cups sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
Mix sugar, oil, lemon juice and honey in a bowl – Add a bit of oil at a time, you may not need all that is called for. Just enough to make it moist. Use your eye to get the proportion right!
*Make a new batch every 2-3 weeks, to insure that ingredients work as effectively as possible.
Let me know if you try it and how it works for you! 🙂
