Lemon is a gentle whitener, brightener and a great exfoliating agent with antibacterial properties. If your skin can tolerate it, you can use fine sea sale instead of almond meal.
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Juice of 1/4 lemon
- 1 tablespoon fine sea salt or fine brown sugar
Combine ingredients in a non-metal bowl and stir well.
Apply one teaspoon of the mixture on clean skin and gently massage using circular movements. Leave to penetrate for five minutes and then rinse off with tepid water. Do not use more than twice a week. This recipe produces enough scrub for two weeks of twice-weekly treatments.
You can store this scrub for up to two weeks in a cold, clean place, away from children. Be sure to use a glass container, due to the presence of an acid in the formulation.
