Homemade Shaving Scrub

Homemade Shaving Scrub

In our quest for smooth, glowing skin, we often turn to commercial products packed with chemicals and artificial additives. However, the solution to achieving healthy skin may lie closer to home. Natural ingredients, such as lemon juice and sugar, have been used for centuries in beauty routines due to their remarkable benefits. In this blog post, we'll explore the wonders of lemon juice and sugar as we delve into the creation of a homemade shaving scrub that will leave your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Natural Ingredients

Did you know, lemon juice in packed with vitamin C and boasts a range of benefits when topically applied to the skin. The citric acid in lemon juice acts as a gentle exfoliant, removing dead skin cells. It also has natural bleaching properties which can brighten skin and lighten scars or spots. It can also reduce excess oil in your skin!

Sugar is a fantastic skincare ingredients and regularly features in my homemade beauty products. The granules of sugar work as a natural exfoliant and can help unclog pores, preventing razor bumps and ingrown hair! Sugar also locks in moisture to leave your skin feeling soft and nourished! Sugar can also help promote the production of collagen. I've said it before and I'll say it again, sugar is an amazing natural skincare ingredient!

Now that we understand the amazing benefits of lemon juice and sugar, let's combine them to create a gorgeous shaving scrub. It exfoliates your legs, helps you to get a closer shave and give you smooth fuzz free legs!

How To Make Homemade Shaving Scrub

Although this homemade scrub is made of natural products, I still wouldn't recommend using it on your intimate areas or arm pits. Just legs and arms.

You Will Need;

* 1 & 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
* 1 cup oil (baby oil, olive oil or coconut oil)
* 3 tbs lemon juice

1. Add all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix well, really well.

2. Pop the mixture into a cute jar

3. You can use the scrub on dry or wet skin, but I recommend getting your legs wet first and then doing it. So just pop the shower on for a minute or so and turn it off again.

4. Slather your legs in the scrub, and shave! You don't need to wash off the scrub to shave.

5. Add some more scrub, and shave again!

6. Wash the scrub off well and moisturise after your shower and you're good to go!
