Lemons are plentiful right now, I  have a tree that’s  beginning to burst with beautiful organic yellow beauties.

Oftentimes  when cooking, we are left with 1/2 a lemon that goes to waste.  Some of the ingredients you use to make lemonade can make your skin glow.

So If you want to have good-looking, smooth skin this Spring, I suggest  getting rid of some of it. Specifically, you can do without those old dead cells that make your skin look dry and aged.  The acidity ( alpha hydroxy acid) in lemons exfoliate and lighten the  skin. Sugar is made from sugar cane, which is a natural and mild  source of glycolic acid, an alphy hydroxy acid as well. Glycolic acid is good at breaking down the protein — the glue — that keeps dead skin cells from sloughing off, as well as boosting new skin cell production and smoothing and softening skin.

My DIY Spa Recipe:
Take your  leftover 1/2  lemon and  sprinkle with  some sugar, exfoliate your hands and arms  over the sink and rinse.

Have more time?  In a small container, squeeze the juice, add about 2 tablespoons of sugar,  a teaspoon of  olive  or coconut oil  to form  a paste and do the same for your entire body.  You’re worthy of having sexy, beautiful skin!

Wishing you a glorious Spring, Blanca

P.S Be careful- oil makes slippery  floors, I place a small towel on the floor for security.
