I've been making scrubs for a few years now. It started with a regular sugar and coconut oil. I also went coffee crazy and started making scrubs with freshly ground coffee beans because I had read about what a great stimulant caffeine is when you want to combat cellulite.
This is why the Dry Brushes by Spaverde were a godsend! I like that I was able to use these with or without any scrub and it gave my skin a super smooth feel for when I wanted to apply bronzers, self tanners or sun tan lotion.
