 Dish Up Your Own Scrub

If you don't have a pot or tube of body scrub ready to go, head to your kitchen and mix up a batch. The few ingredients you'll need are all staples, so you'll be able to slough away any dryness in a matter of minutes.

Invigorating Body Scrub:

Combine 1 cup sea salt, 1/2 (half) cup olive oil and juice of 1/2 (half) lemon in a glass bowl. Use immediately.


Substitute the salt for white or raw sugar if you have broken or sensitive skin. And to make a more relaxing body scrub, replace the lemon juice with 10 drops of lavender essential oil.

How To Use Your Body Scrub:

Stand under your running shower to wet your skin, then lather up with a body wash or soap and rinse off. Turn off the water and, using your fingers, scoop out about a tablespoonful of scrub. Starting at your feet, gently massage it over your skin in a circular motion, gradually working up your body. Do your feet and ankles, then your legs and torso, scooping out more scrub as needed. Then massage up and over your arms and shoulders. When you're all scrubbed up, turn the water back on and rinse your skin well. Dry off and apply a body moisturiser to keep your smooth skin soft.
