Homemade Lemon Sugar Scrub

Leave a comment

Last weekend I decided to take a break from my daily scheduled and went out with my family to one of the water park in Mumbai. The entire day was awesome, but the only problem we faced was HOT climate. As we visited the water park in summers, all my family members had suffered from bad TANNING and ITCHING problems including me. So to get rid of this problem I thought of making a body scrub to remove dead skin and tanning.

As name says it has lemon juice in it, which helps to reduce tan and brightens skin.
