Style starts with you.  And you are much more than an outfit.  Check out this quick DIY facial scrub to shine your brightest this week. Love it! breakfastwithalex: My face has been super oily lately and I truly think it’s because I switched moisturizers. Nevertheless, when oils attack I whip up this face scrub to get the job done. I usually will use it 2 or 3 times a week until my skin balances out. I also add a splash or two of Apple Cider Vinegar to help with my skin’ PH balance. What you will need: -Juice from ½ a lemon (keep the lemon after you squeeze the juice. You’re going to use it to rub on your face before hand. -1 1/2 tablespoons of raw cane sugar -1 tablespoon of honey (to make this vegan you can use coconut nectar or agave nectar) -½ teaspoon or so of ACV Mix together well. Rub the squeezed lemon (not the juice from the mixture) on your face before tossing it. Apply the mixture of juice, honey, sugar and ACV on your face. Let sit for 5-10 mins. Rinse with cool water. I usually don’t apply anything after. The honey leaves my skin pretty moisturized on it’s own. Do this 2/3 times a week until you feel your oiliness has calmed down. The lemon will brighten your skin and the sugar will rid any dead skin that was hanging out before hand.
