You can use lemons and sugar for more than just making lemonade. By combining them with just a few more ingredients, you can create a skin-brightening scrub that not only buffs away dry skin, it also lightens and brightens dark spots when used on a regular basis.
Honey is a natural humectant, helping the skin pull in moisture from the air. Lemon is an astringent, helping to clear up skin imperfections and lightening discoloration. Sugar is a gentle exfoliant.
What you'll need:
the juice from 1/2 half of a fresh lemon
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
a glass jar
my FREE printable labels, located at the bottom of this post
How to make it:
Simple. Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl, then store in a glass container for up to 3 weeks.
How to use it:
Smooth a bit of the scrub over damp skin, and massage in circular motions. Rinse off with warm water.
This scrub can make the bottom of your shower or tub a little slippery, so be careful!
