Happy Friday! Today I wanted to share with you a DIY Facial scrub. This is a very simple and cheap way to scrub your face. All you need is Lemon and Sugar. You can use brown or white. Just make sure your sugar is organic and fine, since you will be scrubbing it on your face.
This is my absolute go to facial scrub! It is a really great exfoliator, my skin always feels smooth afterwards. Some of the benefits of lemon and sugar are...
Lemon: Vitamin C, Natural exfoliator, helps lighten age spots, evens out skin, natural astringent, tightens pores, brightens complexion.
Sugar: Natural Exfoliator, Evens out skin tone, cleans pores, removes dead & dull skin.
^^All you need to do is mix the sugar and lemon until you get a syrup consistency^^ You want to make sure you don't make too much since you can't save it for more than 3 days (stored in fridge).
Rub it all over your face. Make sure to really get the problem spots where you get black heads and white heads. Keep it on for 5-10 min. It should dry, and feel almost like you can peel it. Then wash your face and moisturize it with lotion or coconut oil (to go natural). Coconut oil is a great all natural moisturizer. It is also antimicrobial, anti fungal, and antibacterial.
Some things to remember! Don't go out into the sun with this. Only leave on for 5-10 min. Don't use it on open cuts or wounds. Don't use it if it irritates your skin. Make sure not to fall asleep with it. After all, it is sugar, the ants might eat your face while you're sleeping. Seriously, that is one of my biggest nightmares!! Kind of gross, sorry.
Comment or email me if you try it :) Enjoy!
