Summer Sugar Scrubs: Part 2

sugar scrubs display borderAs promised, I’m back to share another summertime sugar scrub. Be sure to check-out the Coconut Sugar Scrub if you missed it last week! So back to today—There’s nothing like a cold refreshing glass of lemonade on a hot summer day, right? Well, I was recently inspired by Pinterest to try this Lemonade Sugar Scrub—it is the perfect time of year for such a thing! This pampering scrub is a great addition to manicures and pedicures. It will leave your skin feeling oh-so soft and smelling lemony clean.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THIS SCRUB:

Extra virgin olive oil will add a natural yellow color—perfect for this scrub. It is also a wonderful moisturizer. It can be an overpowering smell though, so I recommend combining it with other oils like almond or coconut.

Simple things like that make a big difference. Oh and, Pssst: since you need to zest several lemons for this scrub, you can use the lemon juice to make some homemade lemonade!
