Lemon Sugar Body Scrub

When life hands you lemons…. Exfoliate! 

This is quick and simple body scrub recipe that only require two ingredients. Lemons and sugar. 

Step one: Grab a lemon


Step two: Cut it in half 

Step three: Pour some sugar in a bowl and dip each lemon half in the sugar

Step 4: Take it into the shower with you and rub it on your skin. It feels good and the citrus smells lovely too!

The citric acid from the lemon with exfoliate your skin chemically and the granules from the sugar exfoliate your skin mechanically, leaving you with skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom!
This is a great way to smooth the skin on your legs, feet, elbows or other dry areas. Be careful though. Don’t scrub down freshly shaved legs, underarms or any areas that have cuts. Open cuts + lemon juice = PAIN!
You will also want to avoid your face and neck. The skin is too thin in those areas.

You can use any kind of citrus, not just lemon. Limes or grapefruit will also work. And you can substitute the sugar for salt or brown sugar.

The lemon-sugar combo is also a great way to get rid of onion smells on your hands after cutting onions. If you have a wood cutting board you can rub it down with lemon and salt to help clean and deodorize after cutting onions, garlic or other stinky stuff.

So what are you waiting for? Get your butt over to the fridge and make yourself some body scrub!

    One of the most useful posts I've read for a while. I often use lemon to remove the smell of onion/garlic/fish but I can't wait to try it as a scrub.
