Sugar removes dead cells from your skin, while olive oil moisturizes the skin. The sugar doesn’t scratch your skin and this is an important aspect when you use a scrub. Lemon juice is a miracle for your skin because it great in treating acne and sebum excess. Also, is a great remedy for spots and scars. Lemon juice fights against blackheads and makes your body shiny and beautiful. I love this scrub because is all natural. If your skin is too sensitive and sting when you apply the scrub with lemon juice, add less lemon juice in the composition, so its action will be more delicate.
