Skinny Tips: DIY Lemon Sugar Face Scrub

As summer rolls in and the outside temperature rises, it’s important to exfoliate your skin in order to get rid of dead skin cells on the surface. Sloughing off dead skin and decongesting your pores will give back a healthy glow! As a result, we couldn’t resist sharing this simple and inexpensive Lemon Sugar Face Scrub that you can easily make at home!  Plus, you can swap out salt for sugar and turn into a body scrub as well!
The SkinOwl’s Tip: We love this trick! After exfoliating the skin, apply 5 drops of SkinOwl’s Argan Infusion in Lavender, Geranuim, or Clary Sage to the skin. Watch how the skin slurps up the product now that the pores are open and ready to receive! Cue the glow!
