Supple Citrus Hand and Foot Scrub

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Sharon123

To keep your hands and feet soft and supple, use this! Lemons and limes are a great source of natural fruit acids that dissolve dry skin and sugar is an excellent exfoiator. This recipe comes from Suzi Weiss-Fischman, OPI executive vice president and artistic director, via from Better Homes & Gardens magazine. The scrub is similar to their OPI Tropical Citrus Scrub.

Very nice, some scrubbing from the sugar, and moisturizing from the oil. I just let the scent of the lemon stand on its own. The sugar is a convenient abrasive, since you can rinse and let it run down the drain without clogging.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup sugar
  • 12 cup sunflower oil (or safflower oil or olive oil)
  • 2 -3 drops essential oils (or perfume-use your favorite for a nice smell you enjoy)
  • 12 lemon, juice of (or lime)


  1. Mix the sugar, oil, and oil of your choice in a small bowl.
  2. Squeeze the lemon or lime juice into the mixture just before you are ready to use. Citrus, if left too long, will melt the sugar crystals.
  3. Stir, then rub mixture onto hands and feet, paying close attention to dry spots.
  4. Rinse, then follow with a moisturizer. Enjoy!
