One of the best natural skin care recipes to make at home is a lemon essential oil sugar scrub. Not only are all of the ingredients affordable and easy to find, but this scrub can offer many benefits for those looking for healthier, cleaner skin.

When creating DIY beauty products, you can customize the ingredients and make something that's tailored to your unique needs. Plus, making homemade products can be cost-effective. If you're looking to make a sugar scrub, but don't want to mess around with a ton of ingredients, this is the recipe for you. It's simple to make and smells AH-mazing! 

Spoil yourself with this homemade lemon sugar scrub. Before getting into the recipe details, let's take a look at the benefits of using lemon sugar scrub in your skin care routine.

Benefits of Lemon Essential Oil Sugar Scrub

Lemon essential oil contains antioxidant compounds that offer antibacterial protection and can be used to treat acne, reduce inflammation, and stimulate circulation, which helps to promote healthy collagen production.

Using lemon essential oil sugar scrub regularly can help restore your natural radiance and keep your skin feeling clean and refreshed.

Lemon Sugar Scrub Exfoliating Benefits

The sugar added in this recipe acts as an exfoliator so the scrub can help remove impurities from your pores and deep clean them without being overly abrasive. It also helps to even out skin tone by removing excess dead skin cells so you have brighter, smoother looking skin.

For these reasons, DIY Lemon Essential Oil Sugar Scrub could be an ideal natural solution for those looking for improved complexion and overall well-being. In the next section, we will discuss how to make this nourishing scrub right in the comfort of your own home.

Using Lemon Essential Oil Sugar Scrub for Skin Care

Lemon essential oil sugar scrub can provide a variety of skin care benefits. It is thought to help exfoliate and moisturize the skin, as well as reduce inflammation and acne.

Additionally, it can potentially help to reduce wrinkles and improve your complexion. While lemon essential oil is often used in many skin care products, making your own concoction using the oil gives you more control over what goes into the final product.

When using essential oils, it is important to be aware of their potency and always mix them with a carrier oil before applying directly to your skin.

DIY sugar scrubs are excellent alternatives to commercially, overpriced products when it comes to effective yet gentle skin care treatments.

How to Make Lemon Essential Oil Sugar Scrub

The first step in making a lemon essential oil sugar scrub is to gather supplies. You'll need sugar, olive or jojoba oil (or a carrier oil of your choice), lemon essential oil, and an airtight container for storage.

The amount of each ingredient will depend on how much scrub you'd like to make, but a good starting point is 1/2 cup of sugar.

Making the scrub is as simple as mixing the ingredients together until they form a paste-like consistency. Once it's fully mixed together, transfer it into the storage container before using.

Now that you know how to make lemon essential oil sugar scrub, let's explore the best ways to use this natural skin care remedy and what benefits it may provide.

  • Lemon essential oil is believed to have great skin cleanser properties due to its antimicrobial and antifungal components.
  • Sugar scrubs can help improve skin hydration, enhance skin texture and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • By utilizing ingredients such as lemon essential oil, sugar, and jojoba oil together, it is possible to create a powerful scrub capable of effectively cleansing without irritating sensitive skin types.

Easy Lemon Essential Oil Sugar Scrub Recipe

This recipe uses lemon essential oil only, no lemon juice of zest. This homemade sugar scrub is also easier to make than our sugar scrub with lemons.

Lemon essential oil is not only beneficial for your skin, but it can also help clear your senses with its citrusy aroma. Inhaling its scent can have a calming effect on your body and mind, which may be beneficial for those that are dealing with stress or anxiety.

  • 1/2 cup White sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Jojoba oil
  • 12 drops of Lemon essential oil

Instructions:

Stir the ingredients together in a bowl until combined. Wet your skin with lukewarm water and massage the mixture onto your skin in slow, upward circles for maximum exfoliation without irritation. After two minutes, rinse off with cold to warm water and pat your skin dry with a clean towel. This scrub should be done no more than once or twice per week to avoid skin irritation.

Homemade Lemon Sugar Scrub for Exfoliation

This recipe uses a real lemon as well as lemon essential oil. I chose to make this sugar scrub with lemons because lemons have the natural ability to perk you right up, giving you energy and making you feel rejuvenated and cheerful. Lemons may help exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce sebum production, and lighten hyperpigmentation. 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup Coconut oil
  • 1 Lemon (juice and lemon zest)
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 15 drops Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon)
  • Mason Jars for storage

Step 6. Scoop and store your sugar scrub into three 4 oz plastic jars. To use, place a scoop of scrub into the palm of your hands and rub onto desired area, then rinse. FYI: lemon essential oils can cause photosensitivity.

Additional Natural Skin Care Tips

When it comes to skin care, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Taking care of your skin involves finding a balance that works for your lifestyle and skin type.

Here are some natural skincare tips to help you get started:

1. Establish a Daily Skin Care Routine

Set up a skin care routine that covers cleansing, moisturizing and protection from the sun’s damaging UV rays, and be sure to stick with it! In addition to washing, exfoliating, and toning your face, try to implement a nourishing mask once or twice a week.

2. Consider Your Skin Type

Different types of skin require different levels of care. Knowing whether you have oily, dry or combination skin will help determine the type of products (including cleansers, moisturizers and oils) that are best suited for your individual needs.

3. Drink Water

Drinking plenty of water helps flush out toxins and keep the skin balanced and hydrated from within. Aim for at least 8 glasses daily - drinking water regularly throughout the day is more effective than chugging all 8 glasses at once!

4. Get Enough Sleep

Double tapping into those late-night shows is not helping either you or your complexion! Depriving yourself from much needed rest not only causes under eye circles, but also compromises cell production if done on a regular basis, which leads to premature aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines.

A good night's sleep can help keep your stress levels in check as well as give you enough energy throughout the day.

5. Natural Remedies

Nature has equipped us with simple remedies such as jojoba oil and tea tree oil. These oils can help keep the complexion clean without exposing your delicate facial skin to harsh chemicals found in many store-bought items. Incorporating natural remedies into your skincare routine is an easy way to avoid irritation, or a reaction due to the ingredients.

Final Thoughts on Lemon Oil Sugar Scrub Recipe

Lemon essential oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties that can help reduce skin inflammation and acne. In addition, its astringent properties help lighten dark spots. Meanwhile, granulated sugar is effective in removing dirt and impurities from skin by gentle buffing away dead cells without drying out the skin. It also helps boost skin circulation for glowing, healthy-looking skin.

The use of homemade scrubs offer many benefits over store bought varieties, such as cost efficiency and natural ingredients, typically lacking from most commercial products. This makes them the green choice for anyone looking for an easy and economical way to look youthful without harsh chemicals or toxins entering their system through skincare products.

Additionally, these recipes are easily customizable depending on individual needs. By switching out some ingredients (such as almond oil instead of jojoba), you can further tailor it towards any specific need, such as dryness or excess oils from combination skin types.

Homemade lemon essential oil sugar scrubs are sure to provide total spa-like wellness experience right in your own home!
