Bright Lemon Hand Scrub
|Today I wanted to start off our hand repair kit with a hand scrub. With my hands being so dry, I really need to exfoliate the dead skin so that a moisturizer is more effective in hydrating and protecting the skin. Come join me for this quick and easy hand scrub!I added Polysorbate 80 to this scrub to make it easier to wash it off. The Polysorbate 80 will help wash the scrub off without leaving excessive oils on the skin. This makes it easier to exfoliate without major hassle in the clean up.
I often use granulated sugar but if you feel it is a little too aggressive for your hands I recommend that you put the sugar into a food processor and make it a little finer. Think more like a bakers sugar, but without the expense.
As a last tribute to summer, I wanted to use our Lemon Zinger Fragrance Oil. I think it is fresh, tart and sweet. Of course, the beauty of making your own products is that you can choose any fragrance you would like. Due to the fact it is almost the New Year and we are gearing up for the winter to fully settle, what fragrances would you choose?
Measure everything into a container. Mix well. Scoop into containers. Seal, label and enjoy!
