DIY Lemon Sugar Face & Body Scrub
I am going to create my own version of the Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser today and I am so excited! Heres what I am going to do and what I am going to need:
1/2 fresh squeezed lemon
1/2 C of granulated sugar
1 TB of olive oil
1 TB of organic honey
First add the fresh squeezed lemon juice and olive oil and mix together.
Add in the honey and stir vigorously to form a thick paste like consistency.
Add in the sugar and mix.
If you want the scrub to be thicker then add more honey, thinner then add more coconut oil.
You can also add more sugar if you want the mixture to be more exfoliating. Just keep the sugar to lemon ratio of 1/2 C to 1/2 squeezed lemon.
I store mine in a glass jar with a screw on lid that I bought from Hobby Lobby for $1.
Mixture should be used within 2 to 4 weeks (that’s why I only used 1/2 cup of sugar)
I’ve researched some of the benefits of the ingredients (Thanks to Wikipedia) :
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 it’s anti-aging benefits.
Honey – A natural source of anti-oxidants making it a perfect ingredients for age preventions; a natural humectant so it locks water into the skin keeping the complexion hydrated; the antibacterial properties benefit acne-prone skin by reducing breakouts.
Let me know if you try this mixture!
