Besides exfoliating, egg whites make good peel-off masks. So maybe apply some egg white on the nose (after opening pores etc) and wait for the egg white to dry, then yank it off upways and hope to see some blackheads stuck to it! Cheesy

I've done this three times since last week! It's wonderful, not just on your face but your body too. I made a big batch and poured water over my body and rubbed the salt/lemon mixture all over. My skin was so silky afterwards. When I put it on my face I get a pleasant warming sensation. Thanks for this!

I use a variation fo this: I use sugar (brown granulated, as coarse as I can get it) mixed with a few drops of tea tree oil. The tea tree is an astringent so helps with oily skin (a major problem for me) and is also anti-bacterial so helps prevent spots. I use it twice a day everyday and I love it.

Do not use something this coarse this frequently if you have sensitive skin - mine is tough and seems to take everything I throw at it, but be careful of yours.

O my yes tea tree oil is much too strong for my skin. i mix organic raw sugar, one drop per batch of tea tree, and dr. bronners lavender castile soap. i have also made it with some oatmeal in it, and with chamomile essential oil too.

i came up with this while trying to make my own SUKI scrub. ever use that suki stuff, its friggen amazing.

Heads up...
This sounds like a pretty harsh scrub for your face. Yes, lemon juice's acetic acids will exfoliate, along with the salt. However, this baby STINGS when you put it on open wounds, which is a total possibility, especially if you have cystic acne. Plus, lemon juice and salt are both irritating to the eyes, so washing this scrub off becomes a bit of an ordeal. Although, lemon juice, with use over time, would probably lighten some spots. That could be a problem, too, though, if your skin tone is already unevenly colored/textured or if you have hyperpigmentation.
Myself, I prefer sugar when making a scrub. This is a lot less abrasive, and it won't sting as horribly as salt might. I also prefer gentler acids, like pineapple juice. (this is my wannabe version of Benefit's pineapple scrub XD).
A little kaolin clay/oatmeal and milk/yogurt would probably be a safer/less abrasive mask than this.

Just an FYI from experience.

Very good information! I guess like every other skin product it all comes down to the type of skin you have. I would never suggest this on sensitive or broken skin, but it really does work for certain skin types.  Plus I believe you guys to be pretty smart so I think it goes without saying that lemon juice on open wounds is foolish Smiley Also, I'm not quite sure scrub is the right word for this because if you do actually scrub your gonna hurt yourself! however if you use it as a gentle rub sort of mixture you should be fine. either way, be smart. don't use it if you have a negative experience, I'm no professsional lol.
