Part two in “when a best friend gives you a lemon…” will this time introduce you to this wonderful Sugar Lemon Scrub.
If you haven’t tried homemade scrub before, you will be amazed how wonderful it is for both hands and body!
The sugar will scrub all the dirt and dead skin cells, the lemon juice acts as a gentle exfoliation leaving skin fresh and soft while the oil penetrates deep into the skin and moisturizes it absolutely wonderful!
Those expensive sugar scrubs you see in department stores and spas… they cost pennies to make! Sugar scrubs are a simple beauty recipe with countless variations (try also my coconut and vanilla scrub), and they can be incredibly moisturizing and exfoliating to the skin.
I use sugar scrubs on my face, body, and (especially) feet to slough off dead skin and moisturize. The result? Silky skin with minimal effort!
Sugar scrubs also make a great DIY gift idea!
Just put the scrub in a cute mason jar and apply a decorative label or tag. Now you have a pampering and practical gift for an expecting/new mom, or for Christmas gifts or Mother’s Day gifts!
This scrub last on the counter for up to 2 months (or more).
Take care that extra water doesn’t get into the scrub when you use it as it won’t last as long or work as well.
One warning: this scrub smells good enough to eat!
Actually, it is good enough to eat, but don’t… sugar is bad for your intestines!
