Lemon Body Scrub

Raid the room for smooth sleek skin, on a budget

Wanting to #treatyoself but don’t have a spa day budget?
Do you grasp you'll simply have the ingredients for a luscious body scrub lurking within the back of your room cupboard?
Or if not, that you just will build one yourself on the super low-cost.
This scrub is great for a pre-tan exfoliating sesh and works perfectly as a pre-shaving pamper.

You’ll need

The juice of 3 Lemons
The rind of 1 Lemon
50 ml Johnston's Baby Oil
Cut your lemons in 0.5 and juice, discard any pips or pulp.
Using a cheese grater, grate the rind from a lemon, and add all of this to your jar.
Pour in 50ml of Johnstons Baby Oil* for super softness (We got a 200ml bottle from Poundland - told you this was beauty on a budget!)
Pour in 500g of Demerara sugar, and mix.
You’re done! A brand new body scrub made by yours truly in no time at all. You domestic goddess, you!
*The baby oil will make skin feel glorious – but it does make a shower a bit slippy, careful!

how to make salt and lemon scrub

You could pay many bucks on fancy exfoliating body scrubs, but you can easily make one on your own that works just as well.
This basic instruction for a body scrub/exfoliator calls on the employment of solely many pure, simple, ingredients which will be as effective, if not more, than those in
stores that have all sorts of foreign additives. The beauty of this recipe also lies in that it can be customized however you want to depend on what you need or feel like.
You can use it plain, or add numerous herbs for his or her edges, such as lavender for relaxation, rosemary to energize and invigorate you, or thyme, for its antibacterial properties.

Ingredients: Epsom salt (or coarse salt crystals), olive oil, lemon or juice, lavender or other herbs (optional)

Why Epsom salt?

Epsom salt is an incredible skin-care product.
It is a natural mineral composed of the metal compound, that is quickly absorbed by the skin.
It naturally softens skin, sloughs away dead cells, reduces inflammation, and relaxes muscles.
It can be substituted with coarse salt crystals, which will cosmetically do a similar job, but which lacks the benefits of the magnesium sulfide.

Why olive oil

Olive oil is silky smooth and helps keep skin moist but not oily.

Why lemon or lime juice

Lemon and lime are natural whiteners, acting as a sort of bleach to whiten your nails and cuticles and lighten dark spots on the skin, such as age/liver spots. The fresh scent is also a quick invigorating.

Why an herb

you can use herbs if you’d wish to add a lot of edges to your scrub.
Here we have a tendency to use lavender, to promote rest and relaxation.

You will need…
-½ cup + 2 tablespoons Epsom salt or coarse salt crystals
-2 tablespoons of olive oil
-Juice of one lemon or lime
-herb of choice (optional)
In a bowl mix a 0.5 a cup and two tablespoons of Epsom salt, or coarse salt crystals, with 4 tablespoons of olive oil.

Squeeze in the fresh juice of 1 lemon or lime, and stir together.
Place in a very jar with a tight lid and use once per week for sleek, glowing skin.
If you’re using an herb, cover the top of the mixture with it and stir it in after the lemon/lime juice. It will infuse the salt around it, and you can use the buds/sprigs and all when you scrub.
Place in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and use once a week for smooth, glowing skin.
You can scrub it on dry or within the shower, but if you do the former, rinse off with warm water afterward.

Exfoliation leaves your skin soft and beaming, scrubbing away dead skin cells and allowing your “new” skin to breathe and shine.
It also breaks up things on the surface of your skin that can cause unwanted blemishes.
Experiment with completely different herbs, economize creating your own scrubs, and enjoy!
