Body scrubs are an amazing multitasking product: nourishing, exfoliating and scenting your skin all in one. Why not get your weekend off to a glowing start? Tomorrow is Friday ladies!

A basic body scrub recipe includes:

  1. An exfoliator: sugar is good for normal to dry skin while sea salt is good for oilier skin. Used coffee granules and sugar make a great scrub that may help diminish the appearance of cellulite.
  1. A moisturiser: olive or almond oil
  1. A few drops of scent: peppermint and lemon are revitalising, rose and lavender are relaxing, while tea tree is great for skin that tends to break out.

Mix the exfoliator and moisturiser in a ratio of 2:1 or ½ cup sugar to ¼ cup oil. Add in a few drops of essential oil and mix thoroughly. Store in a tightly closed glass jar.

For those of you who prefer to follow a recipe here is a great one for all skin types from TheBeautyDepartment:  (Tip: for a stronger rose scent add a drop or two of rose essential oil to the sugar and almond oil mixture.)

Or leave it to the professionals and enjoy an aromatherapy body exfoliation at Zorgvliet Spa at Maccauvlei on Vaal Country Lodge or Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club .
