When Life Gives You Lemons...

Are you in need of a good scrub to exfoliate your face and get all that yucky dead skin off? 

You can try this easy DIY Lemon Sugar Scrub. It helps clear up blemishes, and exfoliates all your dead or dry skin away, while at the same time lightening and brightening your face. Even if you made a boo boo with your sunless tanner this will help to erase any harsh lines or dark "splotches". It leaves your skin looking as refreshing as a nice cold glass of Lemonade, on a hot summer day! 

All you need is some granulated sugar and a fresh lemon, or this handy little lemon "squeezer". Wash your face with warm water to open your pores. Take about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and squeeze it on a cotton ball/pad. Next take about 2 teaspoons of sugar sprinkling it on your cotton pad. Scrub the cotton pad around your face in those oily spots as well as where you tend to get blemishes.

After you are done scrubbing your entire face rinse your face off with warm water and make sure you don't get any in your eyes. Complete this process by turning the water to super cold and splash your face, so that your pores become closed again. Your face should feel so soft and smooth after this.  You can also make this a moisturizing scrub as well just add 1 part Almond Oil to your cotton pad after the lemon juice. 

Depending on your skin...use as often as you feel necessary. I use it about once a week, or whenever I feel in need of a little pick me up! Hope you love it as much as I do! 

Happy Faces, Gorgeous...
