DIY Brightening and Exfoliating Scrub


After trying out a lot of different products on my face lately, I’ve found my skin to be uncharacterastically dry. As I looked in the mirror this morning, panicked, I thought there is absolutely no way I’m going to apply makeup on top of this situation.

I decided to quickly whip up a scrub with ingredients I had in my home, and each packed with its own benefits. Coconut oil is antibacterial which will help clear up your skin while moisturizing it, sugar is a natural exfoliant, and lemon will instantly brighten even the dullest of complexions. The real champion of this scrub though is the honey, packed with antioxidants and moisturizing properties, it really boosts your complexion with a glow.

Brightening and Exfoliating scrub

  • 1tbsp coconut oil
  • 1tbsp honey
  • 1/3 of a lemon juiced
  • Sugar (add more for a harsher exfoliation)
  1. Mix ingredients together
  2. Apply to skin and scrub in a circular motion (Remember: be gentle, the skin on your face is thinner than the rest of your body, and more sensitive. It doesn’t require a heavy pressure to exfoliate properly.
  3. Rinse off and pat dry
