This year one of my main priorities is to look after myself a bit more. A bit of self-love can never go amiss, can it? It seems that I’m always running around, with a list of things to do. And don’t take the time to just sit back and relax. But lately, I’ve been trying to stop that. Even if it means just stopping for an hour a week. Enjoying a soak in the bath, and doing my nails.
Something that I’ve always suffered with is dry skin. And during the winter and cold months it always seems worse, thanks to the cold and central heating. So as part of my weekly ritual, I’ve vowed to exfoliate myself. Giving me soft, and flake free skin.
I loved my Christmas cookie scrub; it smelt just like a deliciously spiced cookie, and always worked wonders on my skin. This was one of the first homemade beauty products that I made, and I completely loved it. And, was honestly was the best exfoliator that I’ve ever used. But when that ran out, I really wanted to keep up my routine. So, I decided that instead of going to buy another exfoliator, that was full of chemicals, and probably wouldn’t work that well. I would give it another go and see what else I can create. And that’s how this Lavender Lemon Scrub came about.
All natural and chemical free, with only a few simple ingredients. This is so easy to do, and always leaves skin feeling silky smooth. Not to mention that it smells completely divine. At one point, I was even tempted to taste a little bit! But, it has inspired a new recipe attempt, coconut lavender lemon cookies… yum!
All The Good Stuff
The granulated sugar helps to scrub away the dead skin, and coconut oil has a myriad of health benefits that helps to create silky smooth, soft skin. Lemon helps to ease acne and eczema , and helps to reduce blackheads. And lavender is perfect to help you relax and unwind. All you need to do is slightly wet your hands, and place a small amount onto the palm of your hands. Apply to your skin and rub in circular movements until it’s thoroughly rubbed in. Afterwards, simply rinse off with warm water, moisturise and enjoy your gorgeously soft skin. Trust me, this will seriously make you feel amazing.
My new favourite beauty product; this Lavender Lemon Scrub will leave you with soft, flake free skin, that doesn’t require creaming every two minutes! You’ll start to feel more relaxed and confident in no time!
