Honey lemon sugar scrub - Dr. Pingel

Exfoliating Honey Sugar Lemon Scrub

Servings 1 cup


  • 1 1/2 cups raw coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • In a small bowl, combine the sugar and lemon juice. Stir to make a thick paste.
  • Add in the honey and olive oil, and stir to combine.
  • Place the scrub on the ledge of the shower, out of the stream of water. Wash and rinse your body in warm water.
  • Step away from the water. Apply 1 to 2 tablespoons of the scrub at a time to your desired areas. Gently massage the scrub into your skin in a circular motion for 1 to 2 minutes, focusing on dry areas to eliminate dead skin cells.
  • Rinse the scrub completely from your skin, then pat your skin dry with a towel.┬áStore remaining scrub in an airtight container in a cool place for up to one week, making sure to stir before each use.


  • Coconut sugar is not abrasive and offers a gentle exfoliation.
  • There may be a thin film from the scrub after rinsing. This will serve to keep your skin moisturized.
