An exfoliating body scrub is a nice at home spa treatment for dry skin. An exfoliating body scrub will remove all dry, dead, white, flakey skin from your body. The results are smooth, soft luxurious, glowing skin.

The best part is it is an all natural body exfoliator. No more wondering what some the ingredients on the label are. Beauty counter body scrubs are very expensive. This homemade skin softening body scrub works just as well as any store bought scrub and for a lot less money. If you are ready to get rid of your rough, dry skin, give this wonderful treatment a try.

You can increase or decrease the ingredient amounts proportionately depending on how much exfoliating body scrub you want to make.
