Home Made Body Scrub- Sugar and Olive Oil

Body scrubs is a good way to make your skin finer and softer. Scrubbing exfoliates the skin and washes away dead skin cells. It also whitens the skin if done regularly. Here in Japan, body scrubs are expensive that  led me to the discovery of a home made scrub that is as effective and more affordable- the Sugar and Olive Oil Body Scrub!

Things Needed: (for a medium built person)

1 tbsp. of olive oil
2 tbsp. sugar (white or brown is okay; the finer the better)
lemon (optional)

How to Prepare: 

1. In a small bowl, put 2 tablespoons of sugar
2. Mix 1 tablespoon of olive oil. 
    The sugar should look like wet sugar but not dripping. 
    Too much olive oil can be hard to rinse. 
3. You can squeeze some lemon for better smell but it can also dry the skin. 

How to Apply:

Just apply it like commercialized body scrubs. 
1. Wet your body. 
2. Apply the scrub and rub your skin in circles. 
    Pay special attention to the armpits, elbows, knees and butt. 
3. After 5 to 10 minutes, rinse tour body with soap. 
    This would help wash away too much moisture from the olive oil. 

You can also use this as a facial scrub and it works well with no harsh side effects.

Enjoy scrubbing and make your skin glow!
