Our skin takes a beating in the summer for sure. Come August, between sun, sweat, sand, salt water and chlorine, my skin has lost its luster and is seriously desperate for a boost! Here, is one of our favorite recipes from blogger Karen Fernand using ingredients that are easy to find and guaranteed to leave your skin feeling smooth and fresh from head to toe!

1 cup organic cane sugar
¼ cup olive oil or coconut oil
2 tbsp. raw honey
15 drops lemon essential oil
15 drops lavender essential oil
Zest from 1 lemon

Mix sugar, lemon zest, olive oil, and honey together.
Add essential oils and stir to combine.

This can be easily made with whatever citrus you have on hand: lemons, limes, and grapefruits smell and feel just as heavenly. Check out more of Karen’s style tips at BKLYN to Boise.
