Did you know you can use sugar to help make your own body scrub? It’s quite amazing, actually! You simply add sugar to any pureed fruit and from there you can use it as a body scrub day or night. If you have dry skin, you can try rubbing salt and oil on the rough patches. Combine salt, olive oil, and coconut oil into a paste. If you rub the concoction on your skin in the shower, it will act as a body scrub and exfoliate your skin and get rid of dry, dead patches.
