Skin & Tonic: Lemonade Facial Scrub

lemon body scrub

Okay, I think it’s safe to say that winter is officially here! Though I love thick, snuggly cashmere sweaters and cute ear muffs, what I am not looking forward to is the dull, flaky, dry skin that comes with the season. It’s time to create a yummy potion to rescue your skin that is soon to have the winter blues.

The natural combination of lemon and sugar is not only good to your taste buds, it also supports hydration of the skin and gives you that dewy summer glow that you love.

Rest up! This mask is best done before bed. The lemon will make your skin very sensitive to light. The olive oil will replenish the skin with moisture and act as an anti-inflammatory agent for the skin. The honey is a natural humectant and while you rest will draw moisture into your freshly cleansed skin.
