Without a doubt, one of the best things I ever did for my skin was to start making my own scrubs. The stuff at the store is chock full of stuff that's bad for your skin - all sorts of chemicals and alcohol. Yuck. Do your skin a favor... Go out and buy a mason jar. Add coarse sea salt, olive oil, almond oil, and if you can find it - jojoba oil. Use daily. Love your skin again. I add the olive oil and jojoba oil first to the salt and then add as much almond oil as I need to make it smell…

The Oil-Cleansing Method (OCM) Alright, it might sound a little odd to clean your face with an oil, especially if you have oily skin. But contrary to popular belief, oil does not cause oily skin or acne. That culprit is usually a combination of hormones, trapped bacteria, and dirt.

take coffee grinds with olive oil, and make into a paste. massage well into the area with stretch marks for about 5 minutes. then take a hot towel, and wrap it around the area for about 20-25 minutes. remove and wash off with warm water. also, when you are finished, apply a moisturizer to the area. the olive oil with the caffeine in the grinds, will help stimulate the area to remove the stretch marks. if you do this 1-3 times a week, you will start to notice a difference within 2 weeks…

Listerine Foot Bath Listerine: the BEST way to get your feet ready for summer. Sounds crazy but it works! Mix 1/4 c Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4 c vinegar and 1/2 c of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off!

Interesting "Seriously your skin will never feel or look better! Can be simplified to 3/4 coffee grounds, 1/4 brown sugar and a dash of olive oil to bring it into paste form... YOU MUST TRY! Exfoliates, fights cellulite, gets rid of the red bumps on the backs of arms, moisturizes, the works!"

I made it in the microwave and the directions say 2 min, but I did it for 3. It has lots of bubbles when cooking and it is almost completely clear when its done. Absolutely love it and SUPER CHEAP!!
