Homemade Lemon & Honey Sugar Scrub (4 Ingredients!)

Dilemma: It's 10AM on a Saturday and I want to take a long, hot shower. My face is feeling oily and I started breaking out yesterday (hello, Aunt Flo). What I need is a good exfoliant. Something to scrub off the dead skin and give me a healthy glow, but lo and behold, the cupboards are bare :(

Now, I can a.) get dressed and drive to the store to spend $10 on a mediocre product full of crap that may or may not give me cancer. Or, b.) step into the kitchen (no bra necessary) and whip up a quick concoction using items from my pantry.

Let me just say, on Saturday, I try to put off changing out of jam jams as long as possible. Don't pretend I'm the only one.



Ingredients

  • 1 tblsp olive oil
  • 1 tblsp honey
  • Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 1/2 c. Sugar


Mix first 3 ingredients well, then add the sugar. It may seem super thick at first but will quickly thin. Feel free to add more sugar for more exfoliation.



My skin feels amazing! Super soft and clean. Especially around the edges of my nose which seem to be my problem area. No joke, I can't stop touching my face, feels amazing.

Don't you think this would make a great gift? Mother's Day perhaps? Hint, hint.

Did you try this? Let me know what you thought!
