DIY Facial Scrub
I love making DIY beauty treatments at home. They are very inexpensive and can be made easily. I also like that I can know exactly what is going into my treatment. This scrub is very simple, yet effective with just lemon juice, brown sugar, and olive oil. The lemon juice is high in vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant. Lemon juice is a powerful and natural skin lightener, which can diminish the appearance of red acne scars, hyper pigmentation, and most other discolorations on the skin. The brown sugar contains a natural glycolic acid, which helps promote healthy skin cell turnover, leaving behind more radiant, bright skin, and since brown sugar is soft, it won't cause microscopic tears in the skin. The olive oil, which is rich in vitamin E, has anti-aging properties and works alongside the brown sugar to remove dead skin cells. This scrub will leave your skin feeling soft, and looking bright and radiant!
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Mix all ingredients together and apply to face in circular motions. Let the mixture sit on the skin for up to 5 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. Pat face dry and follow with your favorite moisturizer.
