Did you know that lemon essential oil is in this scrub for more than just its delightful smell? Lemon oil is naturally an astringent substance. As a result, it helps to clear up acne and other skin issues naturally. The essential oil is also helpful is making your skin less oily. As a result, after using this homemade lemon sugar scrub for a few days, you’ll start to notice that your skin is brighter and your complexion is clearer.
If that’s not enough, this homemade body scrub also includes coconut oil! This makes the scrub an even more powerful addition to your skincare regimen! Coconut oil is an excellent natural moisturizer, and quickly can soothe even the driest skin. On top of that, coconut oil works wonderfully when paired with exfoliants like the sugar in this homemade lemon sugar scrub recipe. The sugar works to scrub off your dead skin and cleanse your pores, while the coconut oil immediately soothes the cleansed skin and closes your pores. This leaves your skin feeling refreshed and looking gorgeous! Also, with continual use of this sugar scrub, you’ll find that your closed pores give your skin a more even, smooth texture, and that you’re less susceptible to occurrences of acne.
Isn’t it amazing that you can get all these wonderful benefits with only a few inexpensive and natural ingredients? You’ll never want to use a commercial skin cleanser again after you give this homemade lemon sugar scrub a try!
