Lime Facial

    I saw this recipe on the show "The Doctors" and this was a fun one to try.  For this facial you will need:

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
A pinch of sea salt 

You mix all the ingredients in a bowl and apply to your face.  Leave the mixture on your face for 10 minutes then rinse with warm water.  This is supposed to exfoliate your skin and brighten it as well.  You are supposed to use this once a week.  I tried it once and will probably do it again as I like the way my face smelled after and it felt very soft.  It was also easy to make.  I think if you substitute the brown sugar with Agave Nectar, it might be a good homemade salad dressing if you make too much for the facial!

Hi Denise, Not sure about getting rid of the tan on your face, but I do know that the lime juice is a skin brightener so it might give your face a glow.  I've gotten a few compliments on my face having a glow to it this past week and this is the only new thing I have tried.   Hi Sarah,   I think you'll like this one! I always like these natural mixtures because if you have anything left over you can always use it on food to eat too!

I've never used lime juice in any of my homemade skin care adventures, but as I do love lime, I think I might give this a try sooner than later.
