DIY Lemon Face Scrub

This DIY Lemon Scrub scrub is so fabulous, you guys! I love what it’s done to my skin!  It’s become my little pampering treat that I look forward to each morning. This scrub is my new favorite and I can’t wait for you to try it, too!


A few months ago, I took a trip to visit my mom. We don’t live in the same state and I only get to see her every few months. As soon as I saw her, I couldn’t help but notice that her skin was different than the last time I saw her. A really good kind of different. It was super smooth and so radiant! 


“Mom, what in the world are you doing differently to your skin? It looks amazing!” 


She replied that she’s using my coffee bean face oil  and a homemade lemon face scrub every day. She said that it’s a winning combination and it’s made quite a noticeable difference in her skin.


I already use the coffee bean face oil , but I needed to hear more about this DIY Lemon Face Scrub that she was using!


She let me try it and once I did, I was hooked.


That Lemon Scrub gave me an, I-kid-you-not, instant glow and smooth as butter skin. Plus the smell of it was so uplifting and bursting with lemony fresh goodness. Love, love, love!

As soon as I got back home, I whipped up some of her lemon scrub recipe and I’ve been using it on my face ever since. I call it Lemon Glow because it truly gives me an instant glow that lasts all day and makes my skin look so radiant and healthy.


Because I love it so much and because I’ve also noticed a big difference in my skin, I want to share my mom’s DIY Lemon Scrub recipe with you. Give it a try and you’ll see why my mom and I are raving about it 🙂


Here’s why this Lemon Scrub is so fabulous for your skin:

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon Essential Oil is well known for its skin rejuvenating properties. When applied consistently, it helps dramatically increase the luster of dull skin.  Be sure to look for steam distilled lemon essential oil whenever using lemon essential oil in body care products. Unlike cold pressed lemon essential oil, the steam distilled variety is not photosensitive. I use THIS steam distilled lemon essential oil.



Argan Oil

Argan oil is one of my very favorite anti-aging facial oils…I’ve been singing its praises for years! It’s one of the most popular and sought after oils for anti-aging because of its ability to repair and regenerate damaged skin tissue, diminish the appearance of fine lines and restore skin elasticity. Argan Oil is even well known to make dull complexions glow! This oil is wonderful for all skin types, even those who are sensitive or prone to breakouts.  For best results, look for cold pressed argan oil.  I love and use THIS argan oil.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants that protect the skin from premature aging. Plus coconut oil contains healthy fats that deeply nourish the skin. To get the most bang for your buck and the very best results, look for cold pressed, unrefined coconut oil. I use THIS coconut oil. You can also find it at most grocery and health food stores.

Organic Cane Sugar

Wait, what….sugar is good for the skin?!  I normally try to avoid sugar so it came as a surprise to learn that sugar is actually very beneficial for the skin when it’s applied topically.  Sugar contains glycolic acid which dissolves dead skin…plus it exfoliates like a champ. The result? Polished, smooth and radiant skin! I use THIS organic cane sugar.  You can also find organic cane sugar at grocery stores in the baking aisle.


  • ½ cup cane sugar
  • 2 tablespoons argan oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 25 drops steam distilled lemon essential oil


  1. Combine all the ingredients together until mixed thoroughly. The mixture should resemble wet sand. Scoop into 2 4-ounce jars.
To use:
  1. Rub a small amount with your fingers in a circular motion all over your face. Rinse and enjoy that beautiful, glowing and smooth skin!
