Whether you are strapped for cash, looking to go back to the basics or just wanting to get more hands on in your beauty routine, this do-it-yourself body scrub is exactly what the aesthetician ordered. Great skin is just a trip to your pantry away.

To create it, you will need the following:

  • 1.5 cups of sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • A few dabs of massage oil in a scent of your choice

Stir to combine the ingredients.

Then simply smooth the mixture onto your skin using gentle, circular strokes. Rinse off when done. Do this once a week, and your skin will thank you.
