Citrus fruits are high in vitamin C, which benefits your skin in amazing ways! Citrus contains naturally occurring alphahydroxy acids, which are known to have lightening effects on the skin. When topically applied, vitamin C enhances the production of collagen and boosts elasticity, helping your skin retain a firm and youthful appearance. In addition, using this Citrus Blast Body Scrub will help reduce the appearance of cellulite. It’s a win-win!

Citrus Blast Body Scrub:

YIELDS: 11 ounces

Zest of 1⁄2 lemon

Zest of 1⁄2 lime

Zest of 1⁄2 orange

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon fresh orange juice

1 cup sea salt

1⁄4 cup grapeseed oil


* What you will need: grater, cutting board, knife, mixing bowl, measuring cups, fork, jars and lids to fit 11 ounces of scrub


1. To Make: Start with washing and thoroughly air-drying the citrus fruits. The fruit will be easier to work with if you leave it whole for removing the zest. Place the citrus zest and juices into the bowl. Add sea salt and grapeseed oil and blend the ingredients together with a fork until you have a uniform consistency.

2. To Store: Store this scrub in a sealed container in the refrigerator and use up within a week.

3. To Use: Use in place of a soap or body wash in your shower or bath. Apply to your skin in small, upward, circular motions. Massage the scrub in small circular motions, starting with the legs and arms, making your way up to the torso, ending at your heart. Rinse well.


SKINCARE SECRETS

Citrus is known to increase your sensitivity to the sun, so it is best not to use this directly before sunbathing. Wear a sunscreen such as the Sun Protection Lotion Stick and protective clothing if you go into the sun.
