Lemon and Baking Soda Facial Scrub

Lemon and Baking Soda Facial Scrub

As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons make lemonade, but with these lemons our Esencia Wellness spa team has crafted an easy DIY scrub that whitens skin, helps remove sun spots and helps decrease acne. For this citrusy facial scrub you’ll need lemon and baking soda to create the mixture.

Although some people simply mix water and baking soda to make a mask, we love the addition of lemon. Lemon is antibacterial and baking soda is anti-inflammatory. In other words, these ingredients can help to cleanse, soothe, moisturize and take away redness.

Start off by mixing 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of baking soda. Next, moisten a cotton ball with the mixture and apply directly to your face in a gentle circular motion and leave on the skin for 15-20 minutes.. Once you’ve covered your face, remove with lukewarm water. This scrub should only be applied at night when you will not be exposed to any sunlight.
