DIY Citrus Facial Scrub

The peel of citrus fruits (such as oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruits) contain skin rejuvenating essential oils. The acids in the oil help loosen the dead top layer of skin, this scrub you can make at home will help slough off the dead skin, leaving your face feeling softer and smoother.

For this at home facial scrub you'll need:
1 tablespoon dried citrus peel.
1/2 cup plain yogurt.
1 teaspoon honey.
1/4 cup vitamin E oil.
2 tablespoons cornmeal.

Chop the peel into smaller pieces, then grind up in the food processor.
Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until just combined. (careful not to over mix)
Apply to damp face, massaging into your skin using circular motions. (avoiding eyes)
Rinse with warm water, then splash face with cold water to close pores.

You can store this scrub in an air tight container in your refrigerator up to a week.
