It’s pretty self explanatory really, but I thought I’d go into a bit of detail. Firstly it’s really easy and simple to do as you can probably tell by the photos and is perfect for the face and body.
There’re two techniques and the first is shown in my sequence of photo’s. I cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the ramekin filled with sugar. I concentrate on a particular point so that the sugar forms into a little clump. I then collect the clump and use where desired. My second technique is a bit easier if you are in the bath, I squeeze a bit of lemon on to the palm of my hand (which is in a cup shape) and grab some sugar and exfoliate. The second technique is a bit lazy and turns out more in favour of the lemon, but thats what I like! I’d also suggest to try and leave this on your skin for a couple of minutes to achieve a lovely outcome. If it’s a bit awkward, especially when you’re in the bath, try to leave it on your face for a few minutes instead avoid the eye area. The outcome is better than any face wash I’ve ever used!
Why lemon and sugar?
Lemon has known to be a great natural ingredient for the skin. Not only is it a great source of Vitamin C it can also help with problematic skin. Such as helping to lighten sun and age spots and even out skin tones. Not only does it do that, but it leaves your skin with tighter pores and a brighter complexion.
Sugar is a natural exfoliator, and a great source of glycolic acid which helps even out skin tones. It also helps to clean pores and renew the skin by helping to get rid of old, dead, skin cells.
You also could take this a few steps further by adding olive oil and honey to the equation, which are other great natural sources that would help benefit your skin.
