This Lemon-Sugar Face Scrub “will change the life of your skin.” It’s the best facial scrub I’ve ever tried. This scrub is completely natural, costs next to nothing, and helps with age spots, sun spots, freckles, acne, blackheads and dull looking skin.
The science behind this technique is the result of two compounds in lemons. First, beta hydroxy acid (BHA) works to exfoliate your skin by sloughing off any dead cells.
Next, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) improves your skin by hydrating, preventing clogged pores and enhancing cell renewal through exfoliation. AHA’s help you look younger, increase the production of collagen, leaving you with a glowing and beautiful complexion.
The sugar, of course, provides the exfoliating texture that gently loosens and removes the grime and dead cells from the surface of your skin. Your skin will feel super soft.
