If anyone thinks it hardly has enough friction to make it a good scrub, they might want to give it a second thought or rather practically see it for themselves. Here is to the fourth scrub of our homemade scrub series which is inexpensive and reaaaaaallly easy and good and what not.

We will be needing baking soda (the same one that you use for baking a cake) and a lemon. (Because when life gives you lemons you don’t make lemonade, you save it up for beauty hacks 😛 )

Dump about half a spoon of baking soda and squeeze the juice of one lemon.

There will be some slight bubbling away. Don’t worry it’s perfectly okay for that to happen (your witchy potion is simmering away).

Mix it well with your index finger till a paste is formed of thick consistency. Not too thick because you don’t want it to become too harsh or dry.

Now dab some onto your skin and scrub away ladies. The only thing such u need to know is not to scrub away too hard.

If you are gentle while using the other scrubs then you need to be super gentle with this one. I have used it many times and I have never ever observed any side effects so far.

What I love about this scrub is that it makes your skin amazingly soft. Once you are done scrubbing leave it on for some time till it dries and then wet your face and scrub it off gently and wash.

Nothing has made my skin feel so soft as this one. Another thing if there is any male member in your house who’s looking for a good scrub, this is it for them.

This is one scrub which works great on men’s skin too.

It’s one of my personal favorites too among the other homemade scrubs. Do try it out and lemme know the details in the comments below. !!!
