Inspired by my sister's coffee scrub, I made a LEMON SCRUB ^__^
I love lemon, they contain so much goodness that I need! U know, Vit C!

Avoid contact with open wound. Imagine the feeling when your wound contact with acid.. >__<"
Always do pad test for allergy.
This is what you need.
Pure olive oil
Squeeze lemon juice in a bowl.
Add few spoon of sugar, preferable granular sugar for better exfoliation. The amount of sugar is depends on how harsh you want your scrub to be. Good thing about DIY is you can customize it! ❤ Here I put 4 table spoons.
Add few drop of Olive oil for smooth application. Also clean & hydrate your skin.
Add honey. This is optional. I personally like add to honey in everything i made! hee~
This is what it look like after mixing them..
Apply on skin & scrub * in the shower *
Doesn't it smell GREAT? ^__^
Continue with routine skincare after shower. =)
For DIY skincare I suggest to finish them in one day, not to leave them overnight.
