Read on for a homemade margarita face scrub recipe to use on both the face and body – perfect for exfoliating your skin from head to toe.
Homemade Margarita Face Scrub Recipe:
(Yields 1-2 servings)
Juice of 2 fresh lime wedges

2 tablespoons hazelnut, rice bran or olive oil (I decided to use hazelnut oil)

Put the ingredients in a bowl, mix it up, and apply to the skin in a circular motion for about 30 seconds. Rinse and pat dry.
