I grab a lemon off our neighbors tree and combine the lemon juice and a small bit of sugar to make a gentle exfoliating scrub.Apply the scrub to dry skin and lightly rub in, leave it on for about 5 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel.
Equal parts brown sugar and white sugar (ends up being about 1/4 cup each for a 6 oz. jar) Fill to the top with olive oil (cover the sugars and then maybe an extra 1/2 inch)Add about 1-2 Tbs of vanilla extract for some yummy flavor. You could also add essential oils, but that is a little pricier
Step 1-Test skin care and makeup. Make and test a homemade product. Find a skin-care or makeup recipe online – perhaps a cranberry-flavored lip balm or an oatmeal facial scrub – and make it at home. Ask your friends to rate your product, but don’t let them know it’s homemade. If possible, have them compare your product in a blind test against a store-bought brand. Record the results.
To create the scrub, just mix together half a cup of coarse brown sugar with a tablespoon of honey, a little olive oil, and 1/4 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, then apply all over your body and rinse. The scrub not only smells delicious, but leaves your skin feeling ultra-smooth.
