Take a lemon, cut it in half. Dip one half in sugar, then scrub your face and lips. Lemon – A natural source of Vitamin C; an ingredient commonly used to lighten sun and age spots and even out skin tone. Sugar – A natural exfoliate; a natural source of glycolic acid which evens out skin tone, cleans pores, and improves overall skin texture by removing dead, dull skin cells. Exfoliating your skin not only gets rid of dead cells that limit moisturizer penetrating your skin, but it also leaves the skin feeling smooth and silky.
