I’m a huge fan of making your own body scrub, case in point: here and here. Three reasons to make your own: it’s all natural, you can make generous quantities, and keeping your skin healthy shouldn’t cost you the arm you’re exfoliating. Have I convinced you yet? I thought so!
This is the recipe I came up with for a citrus infused summer sugar scrub. It’s sweet, zesty, and will keep you beach ready 24/7–
- 1 Small Lemon
- 1 Small Lime
- 1 Cup Pure Cane Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
- 1 Teaspoon Peppermint Essential Oil/Extract
- Mint Leaves, lemon & lime peels (optional)
Combine the oil and all of the moist ingredients, then add the sugar and lemon and lime peels as a garnish, then stir.
You can also keep a jar and spoon next to the sink for summer guests!
