We’re always looking for new natural ways to keep our skin fresh, clean, and moisturized. Lemons are filled with AHA’s and BHA’s which remove dead skin cells and help clear up blackheads, acne, and discolouration, while honey is a natural antioxidant and antibacterial.

The best part about this DIY facial scrub, is you can find all the ingredients you need in your kitchen cabinets!

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 of an organic lemon
  • 1 tbsp. of organic raw honey
  • mixing bowl
  • spoon


To prep your skin before any face mask, pour boiling hot water in a bowl and stand above it letting the steam open your pores. Mix one tablespoon of organic raw honey and half a squeezed lemon in to a bowl until it’s a paste-like consistency.


Apply all over your face, avoiding the eye area. Now, let your skin soak up all this goodness for 15-30 minutes (depending on how sensitive your skin is).


Wash away with warm water, finishing with one splash of cold water to close your pores. Pat gently with a towel to dry.


Let your skin breathe for the rest of the day, or follow up with your favourite moisturizer/serum.

And that’s it! A quick and easy DIY Lemon Honey Facial Scrub that’ll have your skin feeling healthy, moisturized, and rejuvenated.
