Home Spa Body Scrubs

Going to the spa is very relaxing but, it can be costly and time consuming. With a few dollars and less time than it would take to go to the spa, you can make your own body scrub at home and still have nice, rejuvenated, fresh skin.
Body scrubs exfoliate, gently cleansing the dry surface of lifeless skin while moisturizing the layer seabelow. Common exfoliants include salt, sugar and coffee.
Before doing a body scrub you should take a quick shower to remove any excess sweat or dirt from your body.
If you have oily skin it is recommended to do a scrub about once a week.
If you have normal skin it is recommended to do a scrub once or twice a month.
Scrubs should be done standing in the bathtub because they tend to be messy. After you quickly shower, dip a facecloth in your scrub mixture and rub it on your skin in a circular motion. Concentrate on the rough, thickened areas of the body, such as the feet and elbows. Use all of the scrub to cover your entire body. Rinse with warm water do not use soap and pat dry. While scrubbing avoid any open wounds or irritation.
