Today I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret. I very rarely buy my own exfoliator. Sometimes I’ll get attracted by shiny packaging or the rave reviews of friends, but when it comes down to it, the exfoliator that I whip up in my own kitchen is the one I keep coming back to! I take extra virgin olive oil, mix it with sugar and there you go, cheap and amazing exfoliator that keeps your skin super soft and works really well. There are a million variations on this recipe, but this is the one that I use. I’ve heard of people using salt instead of the sugar, or plain old cooking oil instead of extra virgin olive oil and I’m sure, depending on your skin type, different variations work for different people. The one thing I DON’T recommend trying on your skin is baking powder. A lot of home exfoliator recipes will tell you to try that, but it is way harsh to use, especially on your skin! So, if you’re feeling adventurous, whip up a batch in your kitchen and give it a try. Your skin will love you for it!
