At least, once per week we scrub to remove all dead cells and help skin to look better and smoother. My home made recipe for a body scrub is a brown soft sugar – it has got smaller granules – olive oil, few drops of vitamin E, few drops of some lovely smelling essential oil like lavender or orange and squeeze of lemon which will brighten your skin. You can do the same mixture using salt instead of sugar. I just found that salt sometimes “burns” my skin. Using oil means you can skip your moisturizer after scrubbing and just relax.
