Jojoba-Grapefruit Nighttime Body Moisturizer
Smooths dry skin
What’s in it:
3 tablespoons jojoba oil
3 drops grapefruit essential oil
1 grapefruit (or about ? cup of peel)
How it works: Grapefruit is a source of AHAs, while jojoba oil
lubricates the skin and keeps it smooth.
How to make it: Combine the oils and set aside. Next, remove the
yellow skin of the grapefruit with a vegetable peeler, avoiding the
white pith underneath. Toss the peel into the oil mixture until it’s
Set it aside to infuse for at least 24 hours. Remove the peel,
squeezing it against a spoon to retain as much of the oil as possible
and discard. Pour the mixture into a storage container.
How to use it: This refreshing body moisturizer works while you sleep.
Be sure to wash it all off in the morning, however, because, like
other citruses, grapefruit is a photosensitizer that can cause skin to
discolor in the sun.
