DIY-Citrus Sugar Scrub!

(Both pictures are from Google)
Now that the Sun is peaking out from behind the clouds and scaring the rain away,your legs are all of a sudden are taken out of their protective cocoon of tights and trousers and thrust into daylight,squinting and looking, well, a little unloved.But this simple homemade citrus sugar scrub will buff away the winter residue and return your body to its full, moisturised glory.

1 Small organic lemon
1 Small organic lime 
1 cup of organic pure cane sugar
1/2 cup organic coconut oil 
1 Teaspoon organic peppermint essential oil/extract
You can also add extras like mint leaves or lemon/lime peel.

How to make:
Mix the coconut oil,the peppermint oil and juice from both the lemon and lime.
Then pour in the sugar and mix well.
If you want to add your extras, you can do this now.
Transfer the mixture to a clean,dry container or an old jam jar and you're ready to scrub!

Exfoliating is great for polishing off dead skin cells and encouraging new ones to take their place.The oil in the recipe adds a beautiful moistening quality-essential after any exfoliating session!

Don't exfoliate more than once or twice a week as you can damage your skin.And don't do it after shaving as you will be left with red lumps and bumps and not the smooth silkiness you were after!
