My skin does not like the changing seasons.
Uh uh, no way. It gets all irritable and cranky and begs for me to scratch it furiously.
So I need to give it a little extra attention to calm it down.
This DIY all-natural lavender and lemon sugar scrub is the perfect antidote.
The sugar exfoliates the skin, sloughing off dead cells (sugar contains naturally occurring glycolic acid which dissolves old dead skin) while the sweet almond oil moisturizes. Plus lavender helps soothe chapped skin.
- 1 cup organic granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup organic sweet almond oil
- 25 drops lavender essential oil
- 10 drops lemon essential oil
Stir together all ingredients. Ta-da! That’s it.
I suggest scooping out a bit of the scrub prior to hopping in the shower — getting water in the scrub could cause mold growth.
