  2. They use natural ingredients
  3. They're better for your skin

You'll need:

This recipe makes enough for 3-4 uses so this stuff will last you a whole month!


Mix all ingredients in a bowl and transfer to a jar. After washing your face, and while skin is still wet, gently massage onto your skin, focusing on your t-zone as well as on the neck. Rinse with warm water and pat try. Don't forget to moisturize!

The entire recipe costs just $1.25 (depending on the cost of the lemon at times) and it's super good for your skin! This would also make a great gift! Just place in a nice jar and tie a ribbon around the lid.

Why This Lemon Exfoliator is Good For Your Skin

Lemons: A natural brightener, the lemon evens out your skin tone and reduces the appearance of scars and dark spots.

Olive OilA natural moisturizer, olive oil is a great anti-oxidant and protects your skin against the sun as well as environmental gunk.

SugarBecause of its granules, it's very effective at sloughing away dead skin cells.

HoneyKnown for its antiseptic properties, honey is also a great moisturizer that minimizes pores, reduces pimples, and erases fine lines.

Don't forget that this is NOT a face wash, but an exfoliator. Use it only once a week. Using it anymore than that will cause your skin to break, redden, and result in breakouts. So use it once a week and do it gently!
