My happy place is where beauty and wellness meet! One of my favorite things about this “place” is how readily I can beautify and groom using day-to-day ingredients, creating beauty solutions that are as high-quality as anything you’d buy in a department store. Here’s one of favorite ways to pamper and beautify while nourishing my skin:
2 part extra virgin olive oil
2 parts sugar (white or brown is fine)
1 part lemon juice
Mix the ingredients together, and use as needed!
Great as a face or body scrub.
After scrubbing, wash off with warm water.
Do not use more than once a week.
Store in a sealed container.
Keeps best in a refrigerator.
Aside from the effects of exfoliating, this scrub treats your skin to nutrient rich extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Olive oil is full of antioxidants and phytonutrients, and lemon juice, itself a great exfoliant, also provides a dose of Vitamin C.
Give it a try, enjoy your softened, exfoliated skin and let me know what you think!
