DIY: Body Scrub


Hello ladies and gentlemen! Here is a very simple DIY body scrub scented with lemon juice.  It's great to exfoliate and moisture the skin during this cold days.  I like to use this in the back of my leg because I tend to get some little razor bumps that I hate and this helps reduce the appearance.

Things you'll need:

  • Juice of one whole lemon
  • Cinnamon
  • Raw honey (not shown in pics)
  • Sea salt
  • Coconut oil
  • Brown sugar
  • Mason car w/ lid or any other container
  • Spoon to mix

**Make sure to wash the mason jar or any other container you will be using to insure no debris are trapped inside.  We want this to be a bacteria free scrub. ^_^

There is really no exact way to do this, you simply add the items to the jar and once done, mix well and close lid.  I did not measure any ingredients, simply calculated it based on how much would fit in my container.  I like to let mine sit for a few hours before I use it.  Usually I use it 2-3 times per week and it will last me 2 weeks.  I prefer to use it when I shower as this is more convenient.

Beauty Benefits:

Lemon juice:  Helps lighten skin over time, so if you have dark spot like the underarm this would be   a great area to apply it.  

Raw Honey:  great cleanser for acne, help fade scars, hair conditioner, moisturizer, natural bleaching effect and when combined with lemon juice and sugar it helps remove excess body hair.

Cinnamon: helps remove dead skin cells, and a great moisturizer.  * Like Angelina Jolie's full lips? apply vaseline then damp ground cinnamon to lips, let sit for few mins, rinse, then apply more vaseline/Chapstick and voila! no surgery needed. 

Sea salt: Helps exfoliate and smoothen rough skin.

Brown sugar: Help remove dead skin cells, helps trap moisture in the skin for long lasting soft legs, and it aids guard the skin from destructive toxins.

Coconut oil:  Moisturizes the skin; fatty acids in the oil reinforces the natural lipid barrier of our skin thus locking in moisture.  It also contains anti-fungal properties to this scrub is also great to use on the feet.

I hope you give it a try, let me know if it helped you.
