Do you have dry skin patches that you can't seem to get rid of? Well, this body scrub should do the trick. Most, if not all, of these ingredients can be found in your kitchen :)
What you need: A quarter-cup of olive oil, one teaspoon of vanilla extract (non-artificial extract is best), half a cup of fresh coffee grinds and one cup of sugar.
Making it: In a small glass or ceramic bowl, combine olive oil and vanilla extract. In a separate medium bowl or plastic container, mix grinds (use them within 20 minutes of brewing for maximum benefits) with sugar. Add the mixtures together, blending into thick paste.
Using it: In the shower, let skin soften under warm water for 5-10 minutes. Scoop out a small handful of the scrub and massage it in circular motions from your limbs to your heart to increase circulation. Rinse and follow with a gentle shower gel to remove excess residue. Note: Do not use this scrub on your face or on any broken or sensitive skin.
How often to use it: I use it once a week because it really makes my skin feel soft and smooth, but if you are having some issues with really bad patches, you can use it about twice a week.
