Indulge in some heavenly body scrubs

There is hardly anything that a spoonful of lemon juice cannot fix.

Body scrubs are a real treat that make your skincare routine wholesome. Not to miss, many scrubs are made with luxuriant ingredients like brown sugar, coffee beans, honey, coconut oil etc that wonderfully elevate your everyday bathing experience. Not only do these physical exfoliators feel and smell heavenly, they also slough away dull, dry skin to reveal a smoother décolletage and shining limbs. Here are a few skin soothing scrubs for your hands and feet that you can easily make at home:

Caramel delight

If you are more of a hurry-and-rinse-type-of-girl, then this super-performer is perfect for you. It can be made in a few seconds but the exfoliation experience it offers can be felt throughout the day. Take some brown sugar, add a tablespoon of honey & milk, and your scrub is ready! Just like the preparation, the results are equally instant and impressive. While honey & milk give some complexion boost, brown sugar is rich in antioxidants and AHA that promotes cell regeneration. This will get your feet sandal-ready in minutes. Guaranteed!

Coffee in a bowl

Attention, all you coffee drinkers! This scrub serves the warmth and love of coffee in a bowl. Excellent for getting your hands and feet party-ready, this scrub does some heavy-duty work. Take half a cup of freshly ground coffee powder, mash a banana in it, and add a few teaspoons of olive oil. Caffeine tones and banana soften the skin, making these two a match made in heaven. Also, rich in Vitamin A, C, E and potassium, banana helps fight off free radicals.  

Fruit punch

Some fresh and juicy treat for your skin to kick-start your day. Sweet and zesty, all you need to prepare this concoction is one tablespoon each of orange peel powder, rice powder, and calamine powder. Mix these well and add two teaspoons of orange juice. Calamine powder improves the complexion and texture of the skin. Orange peel powder is rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C. It helps in skin renewal and deeply moisturises the skin. Used for ages now by Asian women, rice powder is a natural skin whitener.

Luminous with lemon

There is hardly anything that a spoonful of lemon juice cannot fix. From lightening acne scars to boosting the production of collagen, it is a multi-tasker when it comes to good skin. Pour some lemon juice in the goodness of besan, chokar (husk of wheat) and get ready to say hello to silky-smooth hands and feet.
