To make this face scrub you will need:
- organic lemon (cut in half)
- brown sugar - 2 tsp (sugar contains glycolic acid which is excellent for the skin in so many ways)
- organic cane sugar - 1 tsp ( I add this because the texture is more course and aids in exfoliating. If your skin is sensitive you can skip this ingredient)
- warm damp face cloth
Start with a clean face. In a small mixing bowl add the sugar and squeeze the lemon juice from both halves. Mix the sugar and lemon juice together slightly. Take the mixture and apply it to your face with your fingers. Once your face is fully covered take one lemon half and pour whatever sugar mixture is remaining onto the lemon. Use the open lemon to exfoliate and rub in circular motions all around your face avoiding the skin around the eyes. Make sure to exfoliate all over your face including your chin and down your neck. Be gentle while doing this. I usually rub for about 2 - 3 minutes. Allow this to sit on your face for about 5 minutes then with a warm damp face cloth wipe your face clean. Follow with a splash of cold water and pat your face dry. Take your favorite moisturizer and pat on to skin. Since I do this at night time I use an oil to moisturize (mostly jojoba oil). Please do not go into the sun with this scrub on your face or leave it on for extended periods as the lemon can be harmful to your skin. I suggest doing this face scrub as part of your night routine one to three times a week as needed.
