This Weekend, Be Good to Your Skin with a DIY Orange Zest Scrub!

Winter weather can really wreak havoc on your tender skin! Check out our Video for Celebrations and AOL.com that has step-by-step instructions for how to make your own super-simple Orange Zest and Almond Oil Body Scrub! The full list of ingredients and instructions is also below.

Enjoy!

Materials

Zest of 2 Oranges

1 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp almond oil

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 cute glass container (we found ours at our local Goodwill!)

Instructions:

  1. Start by zesting your oranges. Use the smallest setting on your zester as you want very small ‘flecks’ of orange peel.
  2. Add your sugar and zest to your glass container. Mix it well wiht a fork. Mixing will also help release the oils of the orange.
  3. Add your oils a little at a time, stirring them in with the sugar mixture.
  4. Finish the container off with a label if it’s a gift, or a decorative bow!
