Ready? Let’s go.
- A tablespoon of very fine sugar
- A tablespoon of vegetable oil (olive, hazelnut, macadamia, coconut …)
- A few drops of lemon
The sugar will ensure the exfoliation of the skin by a mechanical action: thanks to friction, the sugar grains will unincrust the impurities , eliminate dead cells and soften the skin . Be careful, the bigger the sugar grains, and the scrub will be aggressive. If you feel that the recipe is “pickling” too much, replace the sugar with almond powder.
The vegetable oil will help nourish the skin (no, the vegetable oil will not give you buttons) and the lemon will have a lightening action .
This scrub is not recommended for sensitive skin and acne.
Scrub for acne skin
- 2 tablespoons of liquid honey
- A tablespoon of lemon
No mechanical action here. Acne skin is particularly sensitive and damaged, no question of rubbing. So we leave the preparation on the face for ¼ of an hour. Honey has a moisturizing and antibacterial action on the skin. The lemon is antiseptic and will cleanse the epidermis .

- 2 tablespoons of floral water (Tea-Tree, sage, geranium, lavender …)
Essential ingredient of beauty in middle east, the Rasul cleanses the skin by gently absorbing impurities and fats .
