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.

1. Lemon and coconut oil scrub

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.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil,
  • 1 lemon,
  • half a cup of sugar.

Preparation:

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!

2. Lemon and ginger scrub

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)

3. Lemon, sugar and oil scrub

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.
