How To Use DIY Body scrubs:

First things first, make sure that your body is totally wet and soft. DIY body scrubs contain abrasive particles to make sure that your body gets that nice exfoliation. If your skin is dry, these particles can cause you cut and wounds. So rinse yourself with lukewarm water and then apply the scrub in a circular motion. Continue doing so for every part of your body and avoid contact with eyes. Massage gently so that the goodness of the body scrub can penetrate into your skin. After a while, rinse it off thoroughly with normal temperature water and apply good quality body cream to lock in all the moisture.

And thirdly, you can add one accessory ingredient, that is, some aromatic essential oil or lemon or yogurt or vanilla extracts. It will make your body scrub more appealing and you may also get addicted to it!
