Are you tired having "tired" skin and also short of cash to buy those commercially made facial scrubs? There are plenty of ingredients you can use to make your very own facial scrub without burning a hole in your pocket. Sometimes, they are readily available in your kitchen and all you have to do is mix them up. Here's one classic example and a very easy one to make too!
Perk it up and start nourishing it with this Sugar-Lemon Face Scrub. Grind lemon rind contains citric acid which helps in lightening and brightening the skin while sugar acts as the exfoliating ingredient to help slough away dead skin cells. Lastly, coconut oil can moisturize and nourish your skin, keeping it supple.
1 teaspoon of lemon zest (lemon rind)
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of coconut oil (or substitute with olive oil if you don't have any coconut oil available)
Just mix all the ingredients and place in an air-tight jar and voila! You now have a very inexpensive and yet effective facial scrub for your cleansing routine.
Share with me your natural facial scrub recipe, if you have any aside from this. I'll be happy to know your beauty secret!
