If we want to keep our skin smooth and glowing, then we must exfoliate it from time to time. That’s because exfoliating helps removes all the dead skin and dirty that has accumulated on it.
Now, there are many exfoliators that you can but at the store, some works better than other. Also some of them might contain chemicals that will irritate your skin. That’s why, it’s always best to go with a natural solution that uses safe ingredients.
For example, this homemade lemon scrub uses only 3 ingredients and it will get the job done, very effectively. And the best part, you just need a few minutes of your time to make it.
Exfoliating Lemon Scrub
- 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 5 tablespoons of sea salt
Start by mixing the olive oil and the salt in a small bowl. Then, cut the lemon in half and squeeze it in to the other ingredients. Don’t add the whole lemon at once, squeeze it little by little and continuously mix. Finally, when you are done with the lemon and the mix is nice and even, it should looks like a paste.
It’s best to use the homemade scrub while you’re bathing and your skin is wet. Gently rub you body and face with the scrub in a circular motion for a few minutes or until your skin gets a rosy color.
It’s important not to overdo it cause the skin can get irritated. Don’t exfoliate more than 3 times a week.
