Have you looked in the mirror lately and went, “Ugh.” You can thank your dull and dry skin to this winter weather. It is just so hard on your skin, and we need a pick-me-up. Preferably a natural one and inexpensive. More than likely you have all of the ingredients for this skin brightener in your cupboards, so you can get your skin back asap, and start getting your glowing compliments tomorrow.
Brightening Lemon Face & Body Scrub
What you’ll need:
1/2 cup of sea salt. The sea salt is used to slough away dead skin cells and assist the lemon zest in brightening the skin.
3 tablespoons of honey. The honey helps to refine your pores while killing surface bacteria and reducing inflammation.
1 teaspoon of finely grated lemon zest. Lemon zest is naturally high in vitamin C which will help to increase elasticity and even out skin tone.
Stir all of the ingredients until well-blended.
Rub the mixture vigorously over any dull or dry areas on the face or body.
Rinse the mixture with lukewarm water.
I love the smell of this scrub in the morning and when used in the morning, it will help your makeup apply on much smoother. You’ll notice an instant boost in radiance wherever it’s applied, and your skin should feel incredibly smooth.
This scrub is perfect because the vitamin C in this scrub actually rivals that of a professional lactic acid treatment and it helps to even out skin tone and reduce the size of enlarged pores and can also be used every 2-3 days!
* A good note for the summer months to keep handy. If you like fake tanners, this scrub is fabulous for removing self tanner buildup and fix those accidents.
