DIY Lemon Sugar Exfoliator



Exfoliating your skin is an essential way of keeping it smooth, fresh and healthy. However it seems far more beneficial for your skin to use organic products, such as lemon and sugar combined to be an exfoliator. And to be honest, the results are amazingly good, you'll smell delicious all day long and feel it to! But not only that, but this exfoliator is ridiculously cheap to make and by using lemon and sugar you know exactly what you're putting on your skin, unlike many products. The Johnson's Exfoliating Wash (here) is cheap, but just look at all of the ingredients:
Aqua, Betaine, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Polyethylene, Glycerin, Coco-Glucoside, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Zinc Gluconate, Magnesium Aspartate, Copper Gluconate, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides Citrate, Panthenol, Glyceryl Oleate, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Polyquarternium-7, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, PEG-150 Distearate, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Sodium Benzoate, Benzoic Acid, Parfum.

You Will Need:

Flannel
Lemon juice (fresh or from plastic lemon bottles)
Pinch of sugar

The Method:

1 Clean your face with water
2 Soak the flannel in the lemon juice
3 Sprinkle some sugar onto the flannel
4 Scrub your face for 3-5 minutes
5 Rinse your skin with cool water

Make sure that you scrub around where make up builds up so that you get all of the leftover makeup off and scrub near the hairline in order to get rid of any flakes of dry skin and oil from the scalp. Afterwards you will have beautifully glowing skin!
