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.
