If you are a regular reader here at The Curious Millennial,  you know how much I love using natural remedies for oily skin.  Today I am here with yet another easy lemon and salt face scrub recipe for oily skin.

A homemade scrub costs nothing compared to the one brought from the store. Plus, it is a lot easier to prepare and lasts longer. I can include my very own ingredients that I love and know will benefit my skin type.

There are amazing benefits of using salt and lemon for the skin. Lemon brightens up your face. Combined with sea salts, it can give a healthy glow to your otherwise dull skin.

Not only does this lemon salt face scrub help in hydrating the skin, but it also helps in evening out your skin tone, and minimizing enlarged pores. You will feel refreshed and bright as if you just came out of the spa!

You may add essential oils to this recipe. I personally love the smell of lemons, so I don’t add any additional ingredients to this scrub.

Let’s check out the recipe for preparing this refreshing sea salt face scrub for oily skin.

Lemon And Salt Face Scrub Benefits

Lemon juice helps in reducing the marks and blemishes on the skin. Lemon juice is also a great home remedy for oily skin. The acids present in lemon help to absorb excess oil from the face. Lemons also have antibacterial properties, that help to get rid of bacteria causing acne and breakouts. 

Sea salt is an excellent exfoliator as it has high mineral content that can help remove excess oil. Moreover, sea salt has numerous other benefits on the skin including moisturizing, revitalizing, and cleansing the skin.

There Ya Go!

A clean and deliciously scented homemade scrub is ready in just a few minutes! Enjoy. You can store this scrub for a month, as salt is a great preservative.


Don’t use the scrub if you have any cuts or scrapes, as it’s going to sting badly. It is also better to avoid using the scrub on already inflamed skin, as lemons can cause irritation to skin with inflammation.
