New Delhi : Most people assume that skincare is only about taking care of your face and neck. We often fail to take care of the rest of our skin. Depending on the type of skin you have, you need to put together the right skincare products which can help us maintain healthy skin. It is important to ensure that we follow a strict skincare regime and never miss out on caring for our skin and it is also important that we focus on overall skincare. While most of us moisturise our body with a basic body lotion but we don't really follow a proper skincare routine for our entire skin. Just like our face, our body too needs a good exfoliating scrub to remove the dead skin cells and impurities. It is important to use a good body scrub at least twice a week to keep our skin healthy and glowing. But this does not mean that you need to invest in expensive store-bought body scrubs because there's nothing better than using quick home remedies which can do the job just as well. Here are some simple home remedies for a DIY body scrub. 

1. Mix 4 spoons of ground coffee with 4 spoons of sugar and 3 spoons of olive oil. Mix and make a coarse paste and gently massage it on your skin. Use this scrub to thoroughly exfoliate your skin for a few minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water. 

2. Mix 4 spoons of sugar with 2 spoons of honey and use this paste to exfoliate your skin. Remember to be gentle and wash it off with warm water. 

3. You can also use Epsom salt to make a good exfoliating body scrub. Mix 5 spoons of Epsom salt with a few drops of lavender essential oil and one spoon of jojoba oil. This scrub can nourish, hydrate and moisturise your skin. Gently scrub this paste on your skin for up to 10 minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water. 

4. Take some 4 spoons of besan and mix it with 2 spoons of milk 1/4th spoon of turmeric, few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice and some oatmeal. Use this mixture to exfoliate your skin and let it dry before you wash it off with warm water.
