Effective two-ingredient brown rice scrub

I love making my own scrubs and getting creative with ingredients in the kitchen. I recently came up with this idea and the results have been fantastic.



My skin has never looked better; it is soft, smooth and all thanks to a couple of ingredients you probably have in your cupboard.

Ingredients
2 tablespoons brown rice
1 lemon



Method

Add the rice to a pestle and mortar bowl.



Using the pestle, 'bash' the rice. I tend to cover the rest of the mortar with my hand, so the precious ground rice doesn't fly about.



After about 2 minutes you'll have brilliantly ground rice.



Squeeze the lemon juice into a ramekin/small bowl and pour in the ground rice.



Voila, you have an effective, naturally exfoliating scrub, at a fraction of the cost of the products in a store, and you know exactly what's in it.



What I love about this is that it only requires two ingredients, but the potency of lemon juice and the abrasive level of the rice makes it a super scrub.

You can use this on your face or body, it is gentle for your face, but at the same time, it exfoliates your skin really well.
