How to make a lemon facial scrub

Your rating: None
This mask is great for those with hyperpigmentation and who want to brighten their overall skin tone. Lemon acts as a brightener, while the sugar works to remove all the dead skin cells. It can be used a couple of times a week to get that gorgeous glow.
What you'll need: 
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon olive oil
Cotton pad
In the container pour 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. It should preferably be from a lemon and not store bought lemon juice.
Add the olive oil into the mixture and mix.
Add the sugar into the solution and mix until it forms a paste. You can add more sugar if the texture is too runny.
The scrub should be used on clean dry skin, as water will dissolve the sugar. You can use a cotton pad to distribute it all over your face. Either use your fingers or the cotton pad and in circular motions exfoliate your skin.
Rinse your skin with warm water and then cold.
Pat skin dry.
