"Citrus brightens skin while also invigorating your body -- and the grapefruit smells so good," says Kimberly Parry, natural-beauty entrepreneur.

• 1 cup of sugar (preferably organic)
• 2 tablespoons of olive oil
• 1/2 cup agave syrup
• fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice (enough to moisten the scrub so that you can scrub easily)

Mix the above ingredients together. In the shower, rub all over your body and face for an invigorating scrub. Rinse with warm water.
