Natural sugar scrubs are fun, simple, and inexpensive concoctions. No cooking is necessary, and most ingredients can be found right in your kitchen cupboard. Make a big batch, keep some, and give some away.
This organic DIY Citrus Body Scrub sloughs off dead skin while leaving it smooth, moisturized and soft to the touch. It’s also incredibly easy and inexpensive to make.
Body scrubs are the best thing to get rid of dirt, dead cells and oil from your body, yet keeping it hydrated, glowing and moisturized.
With the increasing inflation, beauty products are not lagging behind, and the companies are charging an enormous amount of such products.
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!
DIY Organic Citrus Body Scrub Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup sea salt/epsom salt (or brown sugar)
- 1/2 cup olive oil (or coconut oil)
- 1 or 2 slices of lemon
- 1 or 2 slices of orange
① Step 1: Add the 2 ingredients.
Add the olive oil and sea salt (or sugar) into a bowl or blender. (You can do this one of two ways: in a blender, or in a bowl. I chose to use the blender because it grinds up all the little tiny pieces, and I wanted to get all the little bits of orange and lemon peel.
If you do it by hand in a bowl, chop up the peel really really well, or omit the peels entirely.). I personally really like chunks of citrus peel in my citrus scrub. Makes it more, citrusy and exfoliate-ish.
② Step 2: Chop the fruit
I used about two slices of lemon and two slices of orange and popped them straight into the blender. Again, if you’re not going to use a blender, chop the pieces up really really small.
I used both the fruit and the peel because I was using the blender, but if you aren’t using a blender squeeze the fruit as much as you can to get the juice out. You want all the juice you can get, and then chop up the peel and mix it up in a bowl.
③ Step 3: Mix
After mixing all the ingredients, place in a jar with a tight fitting lid and use once a week for smooth, glowing skin. You can scrub it on dry or in the shower, but if you do the former, rinse off with warm water afterwards.
