DIY Lemon Face Scrub for Glowing, Clear Skin


Have you guys tried the latest ‘Sodium sulfacetamide acne cleanser with extracts of zinc and false advertising’? or maybe the ‘97% non-toxic facial wash gel tried and tested by the tooth fairy’? OK, maybe I’m exaggerating…but just barely. It seems like cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies are constantly coming out with new types of soap and giving them increasingly elaborate and ridiculous names. Am I right or am I right? And it would be one thing if these seriously expensive chemical concoctions actually worked, but honestly I’m pretty convinced that the majority of them aren’t that great.

Luckily, I discovered this all natural DIY face scrub a few weeks ago and haven’t stopped using it since. It uses healthy, natural ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen and leaves your skin feeling  smooth and refreshed!

You guys should definitely try it and let me know what you think in the comments below. Also, don’t forget to ‘Like‘ this post if you thought it was kinda helpful or interesting or you just feel like being nice :).

Now without further ado, here’s the DIY…

What you need

face scrub ingredients

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp lemon juice

  1. Mix sugar, oil, honey and lemon juice together (if you think your scrub is too thick, just add some more oil).
  2. Wash your face with warm water.
  3. Apply the scrub to your face and gently rub in a circular motion.
  4. Leave it on for 5 minutes.
  5. Rinse your face with cool water.
  6. Feel energised and rejuvinated and all that crap ;).

    Your intro cracked me up! But seriously – I’ve been paying attention lately to the amount of chemical crap we put in or on our bodies, and it’s scary. I’m going to try this tonight!

    Hi Maya! I am always on the look-out for naturally derived items for skin care, etc. And your scrub sounds just right. I love all the ingredients in your list – just to eat even! – so using it for the skin is bound to be equally as beneficial! I’m going to give it a go! Thanks so much for sharing your idea! 🙂

    Love this idea, but can you use brown sugar instead of white sugar?


    • maya · July 22, 2016

      Yes, though white sugar is a beter exfoliator. 🙂

    This is a great recipe. You can also use oats instead of sugar for a weekly mask.

    This is awesome! I’ve been making my own scrub for years and this is exactly how I make it. Except I use pink salt instead of sugar and use specifically buckwheat honey. It’s so easy to make!
