Once the mixture was combined I decided it was to wet so I added another 4 tablespoons of salt.

Before applying the scrub make sure to stir it as the salt will settle to the bottom if you aren't quick enough.

When I apply the scrub I like to use an old foundation brush to apply and then use my fingers to message into my face but you can apply the scrub with your fingers if you don't have a brush

I like to let the scrub sit on my face for at least five minutes to let the lemon and honey do its job (: once washed off, your face will feel absolutely amazing! Let me know how your scrub turned out
