D.I.Y. Lemon, Honey, & Mint Facial Scrub
As I mentioned before, I love talking about skincare. One of my hobbies is creating my very own beauty products because it’s fun, easy, and saves me money!
I created this one for my face, but you can use this as an all-over body scrub as well. The ingredients in this scrub are great for you skin.
-The lemon juice acts as a natural skin cleanser and fades dark spots. It is often used as a blackhead remover and naturally brightens your skin to reveal fresher, clearer looking skin!
-Honey is naturally anti bacterial. It gently cleanses pores and is very soothing, making it safe to use on most skin types.
-Mint calms and soothes skin that is dry and/or itchy, and is often used on mosquito, wasp, and bee bites. It naturally contains salicylic acid, and ingredient commonly found in facial washes for problematic skin.
-The sugar helps exfoliate the skin. I used plain white sugar because it’s not as harsh as brown sugar :-).
One thing I should mention is that Lemon also naturally lightens the skin. So if you’re not looking to lighten your skin, be careful and use this maybe once or twice a week!
2 tablespoons natural lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
6-8 fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup white (or brown) sugar
1 small jar
1. Rub the mint leaves between your fingers to release the scent/oils a bit. Rip or cut the mint leaves into small pieces.
2. Add the mint, lemon, honey, and sugar into a small bowl and stir.
3. Pour into your small jar.
Thank you for letting me share my very first beauty post! :-)
