Just another body scrub recipe! 

So people, I got a complaint (two actually) about the previous body scrub challenge. One of the challenges of the challenge (LOL) is that people need to buy a scale for their formulations and not everyone has the time or feels the need to get so serious. Another is that they want a non fat/oil based scrub recipe that can be rinsed off easy. I threw in a third issue because I started out with this and forgot that many of you just want to use simple and widely available ingredients from the kitchen or fridge or pantry (in Nigeria na store we dey call am). 

To be honest, I feel a little uncomfortable with this method of measurement but I understand that it has its place in DIY formulations so to make your own honey lemon scrub, you’ll need:

  • A tablespoon of lemon juice – I prefer freshly squeezed but you can use whatever you have
  • Two tablespoons of real honey 🍯 
  • Half a cup of sugar

Mix thoroughly until you get an even consistency and enjoy! 

Lemon is great for exfoliation as it contains citric acid. It also contains a potent antioxidant, vitamin C. Honey is soothing, moisturising and antibacterial while sugar is a great moisturising exfoliant. This formula (more like a recipe) is best used within a week since there is no preservative system. 

Note : although honey and sugar are self preserving, it is easy for water to get into them since they usually sit in the bathroom.

Until next time, enjoy your exfoliating bath and let your skin thank you!
