DIY Citrus Sugar Scrub

Spring is here, and summer is just around the corner!
That means long days lounging in the sun, warm nights, and, of course, short season is back!
And you know what that means, ladies... we gotta start shaving again.. booo
But not to worry, I'm here to help... introducing my lovely Citrus Sugar Scrub
It's made of household ingredients, and I SWEAR it works like magic
It will leave you feeling silky smooth, and I'm sure your significant others will thank me
Combine all of your ingredients in a jar with a screw on lid
First measure out the sugar, any sugar you have is fine! You could use salt, but sugar is way more gentle, and salt stings like a mothertrucker when it gets in cuts
After the sugar, add in your oil
I recommend using olive oil for the bulk of it, just because olive oil is cheaper than other oils
And then adding in as much coconut oil (or any other nice oil like jojoba, almond, etc) as you are willing to spare
Throw in some freshly squeezed citrus juice... I've used lemon and grapefruit, both worked great
And if you'd like, splash in a few drops of your favorite essential oil
Now go take a shower!
After about 5 minutes of steaming in the shower, rub the scrub into your skin in circular motions
Leave it on, and use your razor to shave it off... you don't even need shaving cream
Once I'm done shaving, I like to put it on one more time, just to let the oil really have a chance to sink into my skin... and there you go!
Go try it yourselves, you can thank me later ;)
Hope all of you have a great hump day... 3 more days till I'm done my first year of University! And 5 more days till my birthday!! Woo (but who's counting, right?)
