DIY Lemon Sugar Scrub For Glowing Skin

DIY lemon sugar scrub

Lemons are my favourite thing in the world. Well, maybe that’s a big statement – but they surely lie at the top of the list of my favourite ingredients for sure. Lemon has amazing qualities and when used on skin it works as a mild astringent and clarifier. When lemon juice is combined with sugar, it becomes a powerful exfoliant, too.

Here’s how to get gorgeous looking skin with this easy lemon trick…

A Very Lush Hair

A Very Lush Hair

Recently someone asked me over on Instagram what was my secret for soft, silky hair. Well, I cringe when I think of my natural hair… It used to be frizzy, with oily roots and dry ends and overall chemically damaged. I did some crazy stuff to my hair in my teenage years. Too much pink dye and the occasional bleaching, on top of daily blow-dries and hair straightening. Every hairdressers nightmare I suppose.

In the last years, I’ve come a long way when it comes to hair care. I still blow-dry my hair on a daily basis and straighten my fringe, but apart from that I try to take good care of my locks.

One of the things that made a huge difference was cutting down on the amount of chemicals that I put in my hair. Lush has definitely become my best friend in the hair department…

Hope In A Jar

I’m pushing the big 3-0, I still have a few years to go but nonetheless I don’t want to regret not having done the best I could when the first wrinkles and age spots start to appear. That’s the reason why I recently adopted a more strict skincare regimen (thank you new year resolutions!).

Every night before going to sleep I remove my make-up, apply serum and a good night cream on my face without forgetting the delicate eye area. And in the morning, after taking a hot shower, I reapply a serum followed by the Hope In A Jar cream from Philosophy.
