My favorite homemade beauty recipe to make when my skin needs to be exfoliated from head to toe is my homemade lemon face and body scrub. The scrub is very lemony, exfoliating and nourishing too the skin.
The ingredients you need to make the scrub are 2 cups of white sugar, ½ a cup of honey, 1 cup of olive oil and ¼ a cup of lemon juice. These materials can be found at your local grocery store for less than $10 if you do not already have them in your kitchen.
The materials you will need to make the lemon face and body scrub are a mixing bowl, some measuring cups, a mixing spoon and an plastic jar with a lid. You can find all these materials at your local kitchen store if you do not have them in your kitchen already.
Making the Scrub
The way I make my homemade lemon face and body scrub is by first measuring out the 2 cups of white sugar, ½ a cup of honey, 1 cup of olive oil and ¼ a cup of lemon juice with the measuring cups. Then, I pour these ingredients into the mixing bowl. After, I like to take my mixing spoon a mix all the ingredients together to form a nice gritty lemony scrub that is golden in color and citrus in scent. Once the scrub is made, I scoop the scrub into my plastic container, put the lid on and store it away in the shower until I am ready to use it.
Using the Scrub
When I use my homemade lemon scrub on my face I like too rinse my face under warm water to open up my pores. Then I take some of the scrub with my fingertips and massage it right into my face so the scrub can really reach down in the skin and lift away any impurities, black heads, dirt, oils, extra makeup, and dead skin. After I am done scrubbing my face and skin clean, I rinse my face with warm water and dry it off with clean warm cloth. After, I apply a nice light facial serum to protect and nourish my face and skin.
When I use the scrub for exfoliating my body, I get into my shower and rinse it down with warm water first. After,I like to take handfuls of the homemade lemon scrub and massage and rub it all over my skin from head to toe until all the dead skin is removed from my body. Then, I rinse my body and skin off with tons of warm water to remove the extra dry skin and scrub. After, I pat my skin dry with a nice cotton towel and apply a body cream too help hydrate and protect my skin so it can be soft and glowing.
I hope those of you who make and use this scrub enjoy doing so. I wish you all happy beautiful glowing skin that is youthful and healthy.
