Exfoliating is good for you – no contest there. But how we do it is another matter altogether. There are so many products you can buy to help slough away dead skin cells, and they're all good for a number of reasons. But that doesn't mean you can't get some of the same results by merely mixing a few kitchen ingredients together.
According to StyleList.com, you can prepare your own home-made body scrub by mixing sugar into your regular bodywash or by blending it into a vegetable oil, depending on how dry or oily your skin is. You would use it just like you would a regular store-bought product – by massaging it into your skin until the formula virtually dissolves.
This is a great solution if you need a quick fix around the house or you're on the go somewhere, but there's an undeniable advantage in using professional formulas as well. Many products contain skin-enriching vitamins and are carefully designed over time to provide the best balance of ingredients to soothe, beauty and enhance the glow of your skin.
