Going Green:: Lemon-Lime Body Scrub

Lemon Lime Zest Body Scrub
Lemon-Lime Zest

This lemon-lime body scrub is super easy and gives your skin a beautiful glow. The citrus is astringent and helps keeps pores clean, the sugar scrubs away dead skin and the olive oil adds moisture leaving your skin super smooth. Follow up with a clean moisturizer.

Zest of 1 lemon and 2 limes
Juice from 1 lemon and 2 limes
1 c. olive oil
about 2 cups sugar

Here's how I made it:
1. Zest and juice one lemon and two limes in a plastic container for storing your scrub.
2. Add olive oil.
3. Add enough sugar until the mixture in more grainy than liquid. There should be more olive oil than juice and the sugar and zest should be the most dominant ingredients.
4. Apply generously and massage into skin especially on elbows, knees, feet and hands. Don't use on your face. I recommend applying while in the shower but without the water running because you want to be able to rub it all over your skin before it washes off. For a refreshing pick-me-up, use in the morning and rinse with cool water. Store for several weeks in the refrigerator.
