DIY LEMON BODY SCRUB

6 June 2014









Hello lovelies, I hope you're all well. Today I have for you a homemade body scrub perfect for getting your pins ready for the summer and it smells gorgeous too. I have actually ran out of body scrub so pretty good I made one really isn't it, hope you like it and if you make this please tweet me yours @Paigewallbank. 

Ingredients -
1/2 Fresh Lemon
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 Tbsp of olive oil
1 Tbsp of honey

Directions -
Squeeze half of your lemon into a bowl or pot like I have above,
Add in your olive oil and mix well,
Add in your honey to the mixture and whisk it till a thick consistency forms,
Add the sugar and mix them all together very well
Then tad-ah you have yourself a diy body scrub to massage onto your skin in the bath or shower.

Benefits -
Honey has anti-bacterial properties and can also help eczema with its anti-inflammatory properties to calm the skin.
Olive oil is very rich in vitamins, minerals and natural fatty acids, it is great for sensitive skin. It prevents skin aging, the appearance of wrinkles it also nourishes, rejuvenates and protects the skin.
Lemon is also known for its anti-bacterial properties, It can help reduce the excess oil of the skin, It can reduce the appearance of acne so this will be great to use all over your back. Lemon juice can help with the appearance of age marks less visible, it can help with chapped lips and as there's nothing harmful in this recipe you could scrub a bit of this on your lips as a little lip scrub and lastly lemon I am told is great for removing fake tin mishaps so this will be a fab body scrub for fake tan fans like myself.
