Rejuvenating Lemon Facial Recipe

This refreshing gently-abrasive scrub, rich in alpha-hydroxy acids and vitamin C, gives a boost to our spirits while it sloughs away the tired dead skin from last year and even diminishes the appearance of age spots.

You won’t believe how easy this is. It only takes two common household ingredients, and the fragrance is so bright and mouth-watering, a lovely way to start the New Year with zest!

Salt is one of the best antibacterial ingredients ever, and it is slightly abrasive. Lemon juice exfoliates as it cleans.

INGREDIENTS

cup sea salt
Enough lemon juice to make a paste

Combine ingredients in a bowl. Dab gently on your face with fingertips or a cotton ball, then massage into your skin, being careful to avoid your eyes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

question - is the girl in the photo using a different product other than the result of this facial/recipe? The blob she's spreading on her face looks more like a commercial creme.
