Hello beautiful readers, lately I have been trying to find natural ways to treat my skin. My supermarket skin scrubs and creams are no longer useful to my skin care routine. Have you ever felt that too? Today, I will share with you my easy summer skin hack. I will tell you different ways you can use a Lemon to brighten your skin, and look flawless in this summer season…
Why use lemon?
Lemon is rich in Vitamin C, which allows the skin to brighten up over time and give you that rejuvenated look!
The most commonly used scrub, is the lemon and sugar scrub. I have tried it before and the combination of sugar and lemon makes the application so comfortable.
How to make a DIY Lemon Scrub
1)Cut a lemon in half, sprinkle teaspoons of sugar on one of the halves, until they have stopped sinking into the lemon allowing it to lay on the surface (of the lemon). Then rub the lemon onto your face or body.
