Grapefruit sugar scrub is a homemade skin care recipe, made with real food ingredients; grapefruit juice, honey, sugar, and grapeseed oil. You probably wouldn’t want to eat it, but the ingredients are edible, non-toxic, and safe!
This sugar scrub recipe came in my swag bag, along with lots of other cool goodies, from the BlogHer Food convention in Miami a couple weeks ago. I love to exfoliate my skin in the summer months to keep a healthy, radiant glow. It’s also a great way to prep your skin for sunless tanning lotions. You don’t want to end up with embarrassing streaks…uh…been there, done that. The grapeseed oil makes this scrub a pretty green color and moisturizes for soft, smooth skin. You can also soak your hands in this mixture for brighter nails.
Trust me, this grapefruit sugar scrub recipe is one you’ll want to make often.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice

Now, these grapefruit recipes are completely edible, and delicious!
