diy {lemon scrub}

dsc_1377

Last night I made a delicious lemon body scrub and I am so obsessed with the results it gave my skin that I thought I’d share my recipe with you! You’d be surprised how much money you could save on exfoliators if you just made them yourself with nothing more than a few ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.

Y O U  W I L L  N E E D:

1 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp honey
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 organic lemon

Mix lemon, honey, and olive oil into a bowl. Stir in the sugar until all ingredients are evenly distributed. Use in the shower on your face and body as a great exfoliant.

This scrub has endless benefits. This exfoliator will help fight and prevent blemishes and wrinkles and will also help restore the body’s natural oils. It can help diminish the appearance of scars and leave your skin naturally glowing and moisturized, so you won’t even need to reach for your lotion before you hit the hay. If you don’t use right away, be sure to stir it up as the ingredients will settle.
