Natural Lemon Exfoliating Scrub

    I have been so busy recently as this Friday is my last exam before I qualify as a Nail Technician!

    My final assignment has been to design a manicure system and create an exfoliating scrub so I thought I would share with you all the recipe I selected.

    Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub

    I paired this Lemon Scrub with the Body Shop's Pink Grapefruit Body Butter to create a Summer Detoxifying Manicure system.

    Lemon and Grapefruit both have fantastic detoxifying properties. Here's exactly how each of the ingredients in this easy to make scrub benefit you, as well as being completely natural and chemical free.

    Lemon ~ Lemon disinfects, boosts the immune system and is cleansing. Lemon also refreshes, which makes this scrub perfect for summertime.

    Sugar ~ The grainy surface texture of the sugar creates a physical exfoliate to remove dead skin cells, leaving the skin ready to absorb moisture.

    Olive Oil ~ Olive Oil is a natural, hypo allergenic moisturiser and contains Vitamins A and E which help to renew skin that has been damaged.

    After exfoliating, be sure to remove all of the grains from your skin and lather in moisturiser as your skin will be ready to absorb all the nutrients. If paired with a massage, this will also help to boost circulation!

    TIPS for making your scrub: Use only fresh lemon juice, as this will ensure you get all of the vitamins and nutrients, and also keep the scrub free from preservatives which are found in pre-bottled juices. I would also recommend to make this scrub fresh each time you plan to use it, or to not keep more than a few days and store in the fridge when not in use.

    Hope you all enjoy your new soft skin!
