Lemon & Honey Facial Scrub

Since turning 30 over the summer my skin isn’t what it used to be.  It’s not as vibrant, I always look tired even when I’m not and I’ve spotted little ‘lines’ here & there.  In my 20’s I could’ve been hungover & running on 2 hours of sleep and still looked radiant, what happened?!

Sadly, as we age our skin loses the luster it once had.  Uneven skin tone & sun spots become more apparent due to life style habits – I’m starting to regret all of the times I went to the tanning bed.

I needed something to bring back the energy to my skin, especially my face.  I did some research via Pinterest (my favorite go-to for everything) and came across some pretty amazing DIY facial scrubs.  Last night I made my first scrub thanks to A Beach Cottage.  It only took 5 minutes to make and I already had all of the ingredients in my pantry – quick & easy!

½ Cup White Sugar

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

1 Tbsp. Honey

2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice

After using this scrub my face felt smooth & reenergized, and it smelled good too!  A lot of the scrubs I found only called for sugar or baking soda and lemon.  I love that this one included honey!  According to Women’s Health Magazine honey is full of antioxidants and enzymes that can nourish and cleanse the skin.  It also contains antibacterial properties that can help fight breakouts and reduce redness.  I can’t wait to make this scrub part of my nightly ritual!

  1. I use something similar too! Just without the honey so I’ll try it with that now :p I’m turning 30 this month so I get the whole my-skin-isn’t-what-it-used-to-be thing 😦 just gotta do more to achieve the same effect I guess..
