It’s that time of year again. When your normally smooth skin turns positively reptilian, what are you to do? Fortunately, you can make an at-home face (or body) scrub to exfoliate and hydrate the skin using ingredients you probably have in your pantry at this very moment. These at-home skin remedies take minutes to make and leave your skin feeling utterly smooth and moisturized.
The hardest part of the whole process will be trying not to eat the delicious-smelling products before using them on your face or body. Once you see how easy it is to make these scrubs, you’ll begin giving them out as hostess gifts at every occasion, or even start your own Etsy shop.
