Strawberry Lemon Sugar Scrub

Strawberries are a natural source of antioxidants and vitamin C, which makes them great for nourishing dry skin. Lemon is also a natural source of vitamin C, an ingredient commonly used to lighten sun and age spots and even out skin tone.  Vitamin C is a natural astringent that tightens pores and brightens the complexion. Even though Strawberry Lemon Sugar Scrub has a deep, rich, color it will not stain your skin.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup pureed strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cup extra fine granulated sugar
  • Zest and juice from one lemon
  • 1/2 cup safflower oil

  • Add sugar, safflower oil, lemon juice and zest and mix well.

  • If presenting as a gift, place the scrub in a plastic or glass jar with a tight fitting lid and wrap raffia or a ribbon around it.  Add a gift tag and that's it!
