How to Scrub your Body

  1. Take some of the DIY at home body scrub mix  and put in the palm of your hand. If needed add a little bit of warm water to make a paste. You might need to only do this bit with the oatmeal scrub especially.

  2. Rub it onto your clean skin and gently massage to exfoliate in circular motions.

  3. Then wash it off with luke warm water. You should be careful when scrubbing your body as the oils are slippery.



Do this preferably on the bath tub sitting down. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel if you are using it on your face, it is now time to tone and moisturize.

If you are scrubbing your whole body then moisturize whilst skin wet so as to have a silky and soft skin.

The essential oils are for giving your homemade scrubs a sweet scent. There is actually available variety that you can choose from. For example, lavender, strawberry, chocolate, cinnamon essential oils. Just to mention a few of my favorites.



Handy hint!!! Do not scrub really hard because you may damage your skin.



Now if you have a good exfoliator at home you can :


  • Use most gentle exfoliator you can find in your bathroom.The skin on your face is very delicate and can be irritated or damaged by harsh scrubs. So you really need to be careful of what you use if you have sensitive skin. I use the St Ives apricot product. It is very gentle and only cost about $9 online at



  • Polish your face once weekly. Polishing will get rid of the dull, dead skin cells. Exfoliating/polishing more frequently will remove the new skin cells, which could damage your skin.
