DIY Beet Grapefruit Sugar Scrub
- Coconut Oil is a great, natural moisturizer that’s easily absorbed by the skin. It makes your skin softer to the touch and smoother in appearance.
Grapefruit will exfoliate, detox, and brighten your skin. Grapefruit is high in antioxidants, which fight the free radicals that cause wrinkles, discoloration, and dull complexion.
- Sugar has natural humectant properties, making these scrubs more hydrating than salt scrubs, which can strip skin of natural oils.
- 1 1/2 cups Organic Cane Sugar
- 1 grapefruit, insides pulled out
- 1 tablespoon grapefruit zest
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 1/2 of 1 medium beet, stem and roots removed
- Place all ingredients in a blender.
- Pulse until you get a nice consistency.
- Place in a mason jar, seal tightly, and keep refrigerated for up to a month.
