To take advantage of the tropical weather in South Florida, co-founder of the Caribbean Spa Association, Florida’s Spa Superhero and Viceroy Miami’s Spa Director, Alena Stavnjak, likes to use ingredients that are indigenous to the area in her homemade sugar scrubs.
One of Alena’s favorite DIY spa treatments is a citrus-infused coconut oil sugar scrub that leaves the skin feeling hydrated and soft. We adore citrus at A Girl’s Gotta Spa! for its energizing fragrance that is sure to boost your mood year round.

Best of all, this citrus-infused coconut oil sugar body scrub is simple to make at home!

I follow them on Instagram and am always blow away by some of the before and afters that people have posted after trying their system. Read more
