Problem: Dry patches on elbows, knees and feet

Treatment: A coffee, sugar and vanilla scrub. Coffee has strong antioxidant properties. Because of this, it is a good choice for the rougher skin on your body, while sugar works as a light manual exfoliator to smooth skin. Vanilla extract adds a soothing scent for at-home aromatherapy.

Using it: In the shower, let skin soften under warm water for 5-10 minutes. Scoop out a small handful of the scrub and massage it in circular motions from your limbs to your heart to increase circulation. Rinse and follow with a gentle shower gel to remove excess residue. DO NOT use this scrub on your face or on any broken or sensitive skin.

Use the scrub once a week for regular skin. If your skin is quite dry and bumpy, twice a week is recommended.
