We always hear beauty and skin experts say how important it is
to exfoliate. Moisturizing your skin every day is not enough to
get that envy-worthy smooth, silky, and glowing skin. Exfoliation once or twice a week should be a part of your beauty regimen. It
helps remove dead skin cells to reveal a layer of your skin that’s
soft as a baby’s.

While you can surely find them in the beauty section of any supermarkets, they can be pricey and frankly, who knows what other chemicals they put in those? These days, you can find
“all-natural” labels in just about every beauty product, but really, it’s so hard to tell if it’s just another marketing spiel.

So we’ve compiled easy body scrub recipes that you can do
at home. We’re generous enough to share them with you, so you can enjoy them as much as we do. Also, spread the love and bring out your extra mason jars, so you can give them to
your friends and family. They make such thoughtful gifts without breaking the bank.

In fact, you can find caffeine as one of the ingredients of many of
those high-priced cellulite creams and lotions. It’s not a guarantee though, but if it wouldn’t cost much, where’s the harm in trying right?
