Regular exfoliation of the skin improves its condition – removing dead skin cells stimulates circulation and makes the skin brighter and healthier. See how to prepare homemade lemon scrub, which can successfully replace store bought cosmetics.
Among the cosmetics that you can easily prepare yourself at home are various types of scrubs. One of the most popular and effective home scrubs is the one made of lemon. Here are 3 versions of lemon peel that you can prepare at home.
Lemon zest and juice brighten and soften the skin, while coconut oil moisturizes it effectively. This type of scrub is especially recommended for people with dry skin and blemishes.
Wash the lemon thoroughly – it is best to scald its peel. Then grate the peel and squeeze the juice. Add sugar, mix, and then add coconut oil (the oil should not be in liquid form). Mix it all up thoroughly. Ready!
We already know the positive effect of lemon on the skin. Adding ginger to cosmetics will help soothe inflammations or infections (e.g. after depilation)
Peel the ginger from the skin and grate it (or cut it into pieces and grind it with a blender). Squeeze the juice of a lemon, add sugar to it and mix. Then add the oil and finally the crushed ginger. Mix everything thoroughly.
The easiest version of a lemon scrub is the one made of a whole lemon, sugar and any vegetable oil you happen to have on hand.
As in previous recipes, first we thoroughly clean the lemon – it is always best to scald its peel. Then grind it and squeeze the juice. We combine it with sugar, mix it and finally add oil. After mixing, the scrub is ready.
