This Easy Lemon Sugar Scrub DIY because it's all natural, will keep for awhile. Although it doesn't last long for me, because I use it so much. Keep an eye on separation of the ingredients. If you see separation, just give it a good stir and you should be all set.
(Optional: You can use lemon juice if that's what you have on hand.)
