Want a quick homemade exfoliator that gives you a smoothed and brightened complexion? I’ve got just the thing for you!

  • 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Manuka Honey or Regular Honey
  • 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Bowl & Spoon


Okay ladies, so here’s the deal with the Manuka Honey.  The reason I prefer to use Manuka Honey over the regular honey is because Manuka Honey has antibacterial components that make it more effective than regular honey.  It’s also an antimicrobial and antioxidant. These are all GREAT things for your skin! Cons to this honey is the price.  It is a tad pricey, but well worth the money.


Cut the lemon into 4 slices and use one slice per portion of exfoliator.  Put all the ingredients in the bowl and squeeze the lemon juice from one slice into the bowl as well. Mix it together with the spoon and you’re done! You can store this mixture in the refrigerator for 3 days maximum. Generally I exfoliate with this 2-3 times a week and I love it. Enjoy!
