Body Scrub : Surprising Beauty Uses

Body scrub is a great way to help your skin become healthier. The process of exfoliation is beneficial because it basically strips away your dead skin cells (consider the word exfoliate, foliage which is leaves, then ex them, or cut them away). You can make your own body scrub easily and inexpensively with simple household items and use them exactly like the body scrub you would use from the store.

Three essential components of your homemade scrub are: exfoliators, carrier oils and essential oils.

Combine 1/4 cup ground oatmeal, 1 tablespoon local honey and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Mix while drizzling in additional oil as needed to create a paste. Scrub the mixture immediately over arms and legs.
