A lemon salt scrub makes a great homemade natural exfoliator! It helps remove dead skin cells, prevent clogged pores, and reveal more youthful looking skin.
Best of all, it’s all natural and you only need two ingredients from your kitchen!
Benefits of Using a Natural Exfoliator
The combination of lemon and sea salt, makes for a great natural exfoliator. Lemons are powerful antioxidants and aid in removing dead skin cells. They are also beneficial for the ability to act as a skin toner and remove bacteria on the surface of the skin. Since sea salt is grainy substance, it makes for a great exfoliating scrub. At the same time, sea salt also aids in drawing out impurities from your skin.
This natural exfoliator will make your skin feel revived and refreshed as it removes dead skin cells and minimizes pores. It will also aid in increasing blood circulation.
Many who have problem skin can also benefit from exfoliating as it can help eliminate dirt and dead skin cells clogging pores. This scrub has also been very helpful for me to help minimize the appearance of dark spots and acne scars.
Using a lemon and salt natural exfoliator is great as you don’t have to worry about any harmful ingredients being absorbed into your body. You can also adjust how gentle or rough you use it unlike micoderobrasion.
When to Use it and How Often
You can use this natural exfoliator daily, weekly, or just once a month depending on your skin type and the results you’re looking for.

PLEASE be careful with this! Lemon is very acidic(about a 2 on the PH scale) where our skin is close to neutral. There are a lot of issues that can develop if you’re using lemon on your skin, including photosensitivity. LEMON JUICE IS ACID. ACID ON YOUR SKIN IS VERY HAZARDOUS especially when undiluted, like this recipe shows.
Please be careful. Not all DIY scrubs and exfoliants are good for you.
