Day 15 of MY Beauty Secrets

Oops, I fell asleep last night and forgot to post on my blog. I don’t know about you but I am having restless sleep and sometimes my new morning wake up time is 4:30AM. This has never happened before. I had a long work day yesterday and needed to look good and well rested but I didn’t feel it after all.

How about you! Are you sleeping well?

The beauty secret I’d like to share with you is one to make your skin feel good and give yourself a little exfoliation naturally. In the heart of winter and on hot summer days I love to exfoliate my elbows and needs with fresh lemons. Juicy, ripe or on their way out and about to go in the garbage. Don’t throw them out. Cut them in half and dip them in some white sugar.

Place them on the elbows and rub on the skin. Move in circular motions. Place more sugar on them and go for round two. Allow it to set on the skin.

Next got to your knees and do the same. Do it twice. Every time I do this treat to my elbows and knees I feel like I am back in Italy enjoying the glorious lemons and a delicious Lemoncello drink.

Rinse well with lukewarm water and a washcloth. If your skin is extra sensitive or thin rinse after one treatment) It will feel tingly. The acid of the lemon is gently exfoliating your tired,dry grayish skin (You know the skin may look almost looks dirty). But you CAN make it look better.

Afterwards shower,bathe or just rinse your elbows and knees again and apply your favorite hand and body lotion. You can do this once a month or once a week.

Your skin will LOVE you back by the way it looks.
