Another day, another chance to get closer to healthier skin by making your own skincare, if you so choose. Just as the name indicates, you probably have all of the ingredients for this body scrub items in your pantry without realizing their usefulness as a body scrub. No need to head to the store for those pricey exfoliants- head to your pantry instead!


Kitchen Pantry Body Scrub


¼ cup coffee grounds
1/8 cup light olive oil
½ tsp. vanilla extract
½ raw cane sugar


Mix all ingredients with a fork. During your shower, apply the scrub all of over your body in a circular, massaging motion. Work the mixture deeply into your rough areas like elbows and heels. When finished, cleanse as usual.

Note: Because this mixture contains oil and should be applied during a shower, your floor could become very slippery. Be sure to use a mat to prevent slipping.
