Aloe-Lemon Face Scrub

Simple, easy, and I love the refreshing smell of citrus to help wake me up in the morning!

productidea_facescrubThis recipe comes from ZuzkaLight.com.  I used it this morning in the shower.  My aloe plant isn’t big enough yet for clippings so I used the “aloe plant in a tube” aka Forever Living’s Aloe Vera Gelly (about 1 tablespoon).  This also meant that I could skip the blender and make it straight in a jar!

Skin Mask/Scrub Recipe

 3-4 Tablespoons of fresh Aloe gel

Juice from 1/2 a Lemon, freshly squeezed

2 Tablespoons of coarse Sea Salt

Add the lemon juice and aloe gel into a blender and blend it until you get rid of the clumps from Aloe gel. Pour the smooth mixture into a small glass jar and add the Sea Salt at the very end just before you are ready to apply the scrub. You don’t want the salt to dissolve, you need the coarse pieces that make up the scrub. When mixed, apply to your face, and scrub your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin.

Note: If you click over to the original blog post, Zuzka made a second batch but substituted a drop of olive oil for the salt to use as a moisturizer.  I am definitely planning to try this but will probably use coconut or almond oil instead as these are less greasy than olive oil and absorb more readily into my skin.
