The thought of spring and summer has me scouring the web endlessly for dresses, shorts, and bathing suits (I have a slight obsession with the latter). And since winter is the season for dry skin, I’ve been thinking more and more about what to do to get my skin smooth and ready for the warmer months. A great way to get the soft skin of your dreams is to exfoliate with body scrubs. I’ve never been big on exfoliating before, but lately I’ve been experimenting with more products in the beauty realm and scrubs have a new place in my heart. The most wonderful thing about them is that you can easily make them yourself at home – and you’re likely to have many of the ingredients in your pantry already!

Leaving your skin soft and fresh is just the beginning for these magical scrubs. Different ingredients have different benefits that work wonders for your body. Caffeine, for example, does an amazing job in tightening your skin and getting rid of stretch marks and cellulite. Green tea is packed with antioxidants to detox your skin, and if you suffer from acne, oatmeal works hard to deep clean your pores and refresh your skin. There are also scrubs for sensitive skin, dry skin, and some even go so far as to boost your mood!
