Hello and Welcome to this weeks edition of Sexy Saturday : DIY SKIN BRIGHTENING LEMON BODY LOTION
Okay, so this is more like SUPREME BODY MOISTURIZER. Meaning that it can get a little greasy if you use too much of it (or maybe just use less coconut oil than I did).
In a large bowl, mix together…
1. 1 tsp Coconut Oil
2. 1/4 cup Shea Butter
3. A few squeezes Lemon juice (until you can smell it)
4. Two drops yellow food coloring
5. 1 tbsp Beeswax
How much of each of these you want to put in is completely up to you, depending on what consistency you like.
Lemon juice, in addition to be an absolutely fresh scent for summer, is great for your skin in small quantities! The benefits include:
– Diminishes scars and age spots
– Can be used as a toner
– Exfoliates ( I hear it also helps acne but the jury’s out. I’ll let you know the next time I have something to try it on).
