This lemon facial cleanser is perfect for those with uneven skin tone. The lemon juice and tangerine oil help to gently lighten the skin, which can help with both uneven skin tone and dark or aging spots. It's gentle enough to use daily, and will also help keep your skin moisturized.
Things You'll Need
- 1/4 cup of apricot kernel oil
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of beeswax
- 1/4 teaspoon of Borax
- 5 drops of tangerine oil
In a double boiler, melt the beeswax with the apricot kernel oil.
In a small pan, warm the freshly squeezed lemon juice with the Borax until the Borax dissolves completely.
Remove both pans from the heat, and slowly pour the Borax and lemon juice mix into the apricot kernel oil and beeswax mix, whisking everything together gently as you do.
Continue to gently whisk the ingredients together, and add in the tangerine oil as you do.
Continue whisking until it becomes creamy and has cooled. Leave it to set at room temperature.
After about an hour, put the mixture in an airtight container or a small container with a tight lid, such as an old, cleaned out lotion bottle or cosmetic bottle. You can buy new, empty ones at most drugstores as well.
Store the mixture in the fridge between uses. It will stay fresh about three weeks.
