DIY Skincare: Lemon & Honey Facial Scrub (Whitens Exfoliates, Heals Acne Scars!)

Hello! :) I'm thinking about starting a DIY Skin Care series on my youtube channel. For those of you who are new to my blog, I am a graphic design major and lately I've been working on a Cookbook for a graphic design class. The concept of the cookbook consists of using food ingredients to make your own skin care products. So, here's my first recipe! :)

Lemons are great for whitening the skin and healing acne scars.

What you'll be needing:

Sugar, Lemon, Honey, a Bowl and a Spoon.

Step 1: Pour Sugar into Bowl
Step 2: Squeeze Half a Lemon into Bowl
Step 3: Add a Couple Drops of Honey into Bowl
Step 4: Stir it all up!

Easy right?

Now for the application part, watch my youtube video starting from 1:10!

These scrubs can be used once a week. I wouldn't recommend using it more than once a week since lemons are acidic and it could irritate your skin. I would recommend you make a new scrub every time you decide on doing this because the sugar can dissolve into the lemon juice within a couple days. If the sugars dissolve, the scrub may be less effective.

If you ever decide on trying this, send me a photo! :)
