2 Simple Homemade Body Scrubs for Gorgeous, Glowing Skin

Most of us swear by our daily skin care regime. From moisturisation to toning to cleansing, we do it all. Following basic care routines is great, as it keeps your skin clean and free from blemishes and breakouts.

In most cases, this skin care stays restricted to the face. Most women completely forget to look after the skin on the rest of the body. This leads to dull and lifeless skin and the signs of ageing are soon to follow.

Having beautiful and healthy skin means taking care of your entire body, and not just the face. Using homemade body scrubs is a great way to make sure that your body skin is taken care of.

Benefits of using homemade body scrubs:

    These are easy to prepare and inexpensive.
    Also, these scrubs are extremely effective in helping to rejuvenate the skin while making it smooth.
    In addition to all this, they also help to remove dead cells, leaving the pores clean.

Homemade body scrubs can be made using various ingredients. Choose any of the following homemade body scrubs to exfoliate your skin once or twice weekly.

2 brilliant body scrubs
1. Coffee body scrub:

This will scrub away all your dead skin cells, revealing softer and healthier looking skin. It will add moisture to your skin and is especially great for winters, as it will help prepare the skin to meet the harsh weather.

What you need:

    ¼th cup ground coffee

(Coffee is a great scrub for our skin as it helps fight cellulite.)

    ¼th cup sugar

(Sugar works as an exfoliator. It helps to remove the surface layer of dead skin cells. You can also use brown sugar instead of the regular white sugar.)

    2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

(Olive oil penetrates deep into the skin and protects the skin from ageing. It makes the skin supple and endows it with a youthful glow.)

    3 Vitamin E capsules

(Vitamin E has antioxidant properties that protect and repair the skin cells. It helps make the skin soft and supple.)

How to prepare:

    Mix sugar with ground coffee, olive oil and the extracted oil from the slit Vitamin E capsule
    Turn it to a paste.

How to use:

    Use this mixture to scrub your entire body.
    Scrub away gently for 10 to 15 seconds until you feel your skin has turned soft and silky.
    Rinse it off with lukewarm water
    Make sure you use a body wash to experience the softness of your skin.
    Once done, apply a moisturizer of your choice to retain the moisture.

2. Lemon and sugar body scrub:

This is one of the best forms of exfoliation that helps to get rid of rough skin. It helps you get soft and smooth skin.

What you need:

    1 cup of granulated sugar
    1 teaspoon of lemon juice
    6 tablespoons of Olive Oil or Sweet Almond oil

How to prepare:

    Mix all the ingredients well.
    Your scrub is ready

How to use:

    Moisten your skin when you go for a shower
    Next, massage and scrub all over your body.
    Rinse it off and pat dry
    You will immediately feel the difference in your skin!
    Those who have very dry skin can apply a moisturizer of their choice to help retain the moisture. The olive oil or almond oil in the scrub will also act as a natural moisturizer for the skin.

These entirely natural body scrubs will help renew your skin’s surface to reveal smoother skin that glows with good health. As these are natural, there is no risk of any reaction or allergies.
