Exfoliating your skin produces a healthy complexion because it removes dead skin cells, tightens the skin and enables the pores to breathe. You can make an all-natural remedy for exfoliating made from lemons. The citric acid in the lemons breaks down the proteins of the dead skin cells and makes removing them quick and easy. The lemons are the ordinary kind that are carried at grocery stores and are low in price. A few household supplies will be needed as well.
