Lemons are so versatile. They’re great to eat, great for natural cleaning and also DIY beauty! One of my favorite DIY beauty recipes including lemons is an easy Lemon Sugar Scrub. To make, simply combine 1 cup of organic sugar, 3 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, mix together and store in an airtight container. I keep mine in the shower! Sugar helps to naturally exfoliate and remove dry skin cells. Lemons are packed with vitamin C and just smell so refreshing!
Did you know that is only takes 26 minutes from the moment product is applied to your skin for it to be observed into your bloodstream? This means that if we’re using personal care and beauty products filled with toxic ingredients, those ingredients can have negative affects on our health! One easy way to move towards a more natural beauty routine is to make homemade alternatives, such as my Lemon Sugar Scrub!
