This sweet smelling scrub will get you into a warm weather state of mind, and get your skin in tip top shape to show off when they temperature rises. Make up a big batch, and then use the leftover grapefruit and lime to make yourself a real margarita!

Total Time: 15 minutes
Makes roughly 3 cups of scrub
- 3 cups white granulated sugar
- ¼ cup salt
- 1 grapefruit
- 1 lime
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ¼ cup white tequila
- Using a sharp knife, slice the zest and pith off the grapefruit and lime, cutting all the way down to the fruit.
- In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the S blade, blitz together all the ingredients until smooth and combined.
- Transfer the scrub into a glass jar, and keep for 1-2 weeks.
Note: To maximize the benefits of this scrub, scrub it all over your body, and then soak in a hot bath to let all the ingredients work their magic. Tequila and citrus are exfoliating, and the salt and sugar work to soften your skin, while the olive oil leaves you feeling soft and moisturized!
