Every time I plan a vacation to a resort I have to make sure that they have a spa. If there’s no spa, then the resort is a no-go for me. Vacation is all about relaxing and even though it’ll be a family trip, I still need time to myself away from my husband and kids. It’s only fair, right? A lot of people go for the massages, but I love going for the body scrubs! My favorite one so far was a tropical body scrub and wrap. The smells were amazing and it left my skin feeling rejuvenated afterwards. I also like making my own scrubs and my favorite diy body scrub is my homemade margarita sugar scrub. It smells just like a margarita and after using this diy margarita sugar scrub recipe, my skin feels soft and smooth.
The ingredients for a margarita body scrub are easy to find and it only takes a few minutes to make. I don’t use tequila or lime juice in my margarita sugar body scrub because it makes the scrub feeling sticky to me and it takes away from the exfoliating factors of the scrub because it dissolves some of the sugar. Instead I completely leave out the tequila (let’s just say this is a virgin margarita sugar scrub) and I add a powdered lime mix variation instead. This way the exfoliating sugar scrub can last longer stored out of the fridge, since there are no water-based liquids used.
