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 Oil: A natural moisturizer, olive oil is a great anti-oxidant and protects your skin against the sun as well as environmental gunk.
Sugar: Because of its granules, it's very effective at sloughing away dead skin cells.
Honey: Known 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!
