Limes are a beautiful citrus fruit to use in beauty recipes to help brighten and nourish the skin because of all the vitamin C they contain. A lovely beauty recipe that uses limes to beautify the skin naturally is the lime mint herbal sugar exfoliating scrub. This scrub gently removes dead skin from the body allowing the healthy skin underneath to shine brightly with youthfulness.
The Natural Ingredients Needed
The natural ingredients you will need to make the scrub are two cups of white cane sugar, a half cup of freshly squeezed lime juice, ten drops of peppermint essential oil and a forth cup of olive oil. These ingredients can be easily found at your local grocery store and herbal shop. They are affordable and worth having on hand because you can make this homemade beauty product whenever you run out and need more.
Creating the Scrub
Learning how to make the lime mint scrub is easy. Simply, pour all the ingredients into a glass-mixing bowl and combine them together with a spoon until you get a thick lime colored sugar scrub with a lime mint scent that is uplifting and refreshing. Once the product is made, pour it into a glass jar, seal it shut and store it near the shower or in the shower for easy accesses for when you are ready to use it.
How to Use the Lime Body Scrub
To use the lime body scrub simply step into the shower and rinse down with plenty of warm water and wash up with a good body wash to help cleanse, soften and moisten the skin so it is easier to exfoliate. Next, take a couple handfuls of the homemade product and rub the scrub into your skin and body using small circular motions to help really scrub the dead skin away. After, rinse off with warm water, pat the skin dry with a cotton towel and apply a body butter or cream to help protect and nourish the skin up a bit more. Once you do all this, you will have glowing radiant skin that is youthful and beautiful again.
