4 Simple Body Scrubs

Every so often our skin needs to be exfoliated. Exfoliating our skin allows us to remove any dead skin that may be clogged underneath. Uncovering the skin underneath reveals the fresh new skin cells we had below. Exfoliating opens a way for moisturizing products to work more effective, leaving your skin looking fresh and healthy. Here are 4 body scrubs that have seemed to work for me. I am a pretty lazy person when it comes to having to go out and buy things, plus everything at the store has such a long list of ingredients, I don't know half of the things I am actually putting on my body. So when I make my own scrubs I know what exactly went into them and trust the stuff I am using. Plus not to mention it's way more cost efficient. Buying a body scrub from let's say Target can cost you up to $10, making your own scrub could cost you less than $3 if you already have the essential oils on hand.
