DIY – Homemade lemon scrub !
The one thing we all crave for when we are getting married is that beautiful flawless skin *dreamy*.. We go looking for all the possible cosmetics that will help us in achieving that end result of great skin, but they never seem to work ( atleast not what they claim it will do to your skin 😛 ) .
Most of the times homemade stuff work wonders on skin, but we never try them out either because they are too hard to make, not convenient to store or you just don’t have the ingredients in your kitchen. But trust me, this scrub is nothing of that sort. It is the most simple homemade remedy to beat that tan and the dead skin (mainly the stubborn areas like the elbows and knees).
All you need is :
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of olive oil ( you can use extra virgin or the regular one or even coconut oil )
2 tablespoons lemon juice ( too much might cause irritation )
1 tablespoon of orange zest.
Add the lemon juice into the sugar, mix well and add the olive oil and orange zest at the end. And voila !! Your scrub is ready !! 😀
How to use :
Method 1 : Apply a little bit of the scrub on damp skin and scrub in circular motion once every other day. Do not rub your face after washing, pat dry with a towel.
Method 2 : Place a warm towel on your face for 5 minutes, remove the towel and scrub. Wash with cold water and pat dry.
The scrub can be used everyday on harsh areas like knees and elbows.
Try to store the scrub in an air tight container. And if the scrub goes thick or dry just add a little bit of olive oil to fix it !
Scrub away !
