Most exfoliants focus on the removal of grime and debris from the skin, but don’t help retain moisture. This DIY exfoliant does double (or triple) duty.  The smooth chia seeds help to scrub and exfoliate the skin, the lemon juices acts as a pore reducer and helps activate the chia seeds, and the coconut oil moisturizes. As an added benefit, the gel produced by the chia seeds helps to penetrate and moisturize your face.
