Quick tip

Goodness me! Two posts in the space of 5 minutes I'm spoiling you.

I have just remembered I started doing quick tips, well I have a cracker of one for you today. DIY all natural exfoliating facial!!
All you need is a lemon/ bottle of lemon juice, some sea salt, olive oil and cotton pads. First off take your lemon and juice it, you are now caught up to those who have bought lemon juice. Secondly take a bowl and mix together the juice, about a teaspoon of salt, and half a teaspoon of olive oil. Right what you should have is quite a thick solution with the salt grains still intact. Wet your face with warm water to open your pores and now you're ready to exfoliate. Take a cotton pad and spoon on a bit of your mixture next rub this over your entire face, be careful around eye area. Obviously don't scrub too hard as salt is a lot more abrasive than other facial exfoliates.
Once you've scrubbed away all of your mixture rinse off your face with lukewarm water and pat dry.
This scrub should leave your face feeling soft and smooth as well as radiant. The lemon almost acts as a peel and along with the salt helps to reveal the new, brighter layers of skin. This might sound harsh, but the olive oil helps to moisturise and replenish your skin.

Lots of love
