Lemon Sugar Facial Scrub

Lemon Sugar scrubSince I no longer get chemical peels, I’ve been searching for a gentler, more clean way to exfoliate.  Today I made a super simple scrub.  My skin is so smooth and soft right now.  I am so impressed and so excited!  This is a super simple and probably pretty obvious recipe so you’ve got to try it and tell me what you think!

I love what lemon does for the skin.  It brightens as well as exfoliates.  It’s awesome wonderful for acne.  Pair that with a sugar and you get a really thorough exfoliation!  Coconut oil moisturizes and softens.  Plus it’s antibacterial which keeps things clear!

My recipe calls for fresh squeezed lemon.  This will mean that you won’t be able to store this for long.  With scrubs, I like to make them when I’m ready to use them.  They just don’t seem to keep well.  Mine harden and become unusable even though I’ve tweaked the proportions.  If you would like to keep yours for a while, nix the lemon juice and opt for lemon essential oil.  Also, I find that a thicker sugar works better in this scrub.  I used raw sugar, but you could use brown sugar instead.

This scrub is awesome for the whole body.  I was looking for an exfoliant for my face, but I also ended up using this on my hands as well.  So super soft.  You’re just going to love it!

Sugar Lemon Scrub

1/4 cup raw sugar (find it HERE)

2 TBSP. Coconut Oil (find it HERE)

1/2 Lemon or 20 drops of Lemon Essential Oil (find it HERE)

Mix ingredients together and gently scrub your face and neck.  Do not go overboard-less is more with face exfoliating.   Also, I melted my coconut oil but I think it would mix when it’s solid just fine.
