Citrus Sugar Scrub for Soft Legs

By: Amberly Asay

Ladies - it is getting warmer outside, and do you know what that means for your legs?  Time to get out those razors and shave your legs to make them smooth and beautiful.  However, did you know you are supposed to exfoliate your legs as well?  And, shaving doesn't cut it.

For this mixture you will need the following:
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil (I used olive oil, but you can use any oil, coconut oil, baby oil, canola oil, etc.)
  • 3 tablespoons citrus juice (lemon or lime)
Be sure to mix everything together. 

Soak your legs in the tub, or give your legs a good five minutes to soak if you are in the shower.  Rub in the mixture over your legs, and then shave.  The abrasiveness of the sugar rubs off all the dirt and dead skin.  The lemon juice works as a mild skin peel revealing brighter, smoother skin, and the olive oil penetrates deep into the skin and provides long-lasting moisture.

Rinse and repeat.  When you get out of the shower be sure to moisturize with lotion.
