Lemon Sugar Facial Scrub

I've been looking for a gentle exfoliating scrub I could use on my face that wouldn't run me over $20. These days all these "natural" products are pretty much hitting my pockets hard so I gotta cut corners with somethings as long as I can find a healthy substitute.

I decided to begin using a lemon sugar facial scrub to help exfoliate my skin while providing some of that wonderful vitamin C lemons have to help smooth and soothe as well. Lemon juice is a natural astringent so it can help tighten and clear pores, as well as help kill harmful surface bacteria. This is exactly what I need!

Some people love to add honey, olive oil, yogurt, etc... but I love to keep it simple and use just fresh lemon juice & sugar. A little goes a long way so have at it! I use 2 teaspoons of sugar and add lemon juice until it's consistency I like.
