Make your own facial scrub and get perfect skin

Don't want to spend money on facial masks and scrubs that don't work anyway?
“A homemade trick from my grandmother, who always had clear complexion, is o to mix lemon juice and brown sugar on a cotton pad and rub it over your face, then rinse with clean water.” Daria revealed for one of her Interviews with Cosmopolitan (an old issue I stumbled across the other day.)

I am also going to share with you a similar DYO facial scrub I use once a week and it is the Lemon/Honey scrub. I pinky promise it works wonders!!!

As this scrub is made of natural Ingredients it is suitable for even sensitive skin.

  • 2 tablespoons of honey 
Why honey? Because honey is a very versatile natural beauty product that has been used throughout the centuries by historical beauties such as Cleopatra. It is full of nutrients, antioxidants and other anti-aging, skin clarifying and moisturizing ingredients that make it a must-have among natural beauty experts. (GOTTA LOVE HONEY ;))

  • 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
Why lemon? Because it will act as a natural toner and will help lighten the dark spots on the skin.

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
Why olive oil? Because provides moisturizing benefits to dry skin

  • 1.5 tablespoons of brown sugar
Why sugar? It will gently remove dead skin cells to reveal the smooth and polished skin.
Why brown? It is gentler to your skin than normal sugar.

You simply mix these together and apply with a powder brush you don’t need or simply with hands, gently massaging in circular motions onto your skin.
Let me know if it worked for you just as well as it does for me..
