How to Make a Natural Body Exfoliant at Home

Print this articleExfoliating your skin removes dead skin cells -- allowing new cells to form and showing the healthier skin beneath the dry, dead layer. Exfoliating is also beneficial because it stimulates circulation and helps unclog pores. The process is typically done using pumice stones, rough brushes and commercial products. You can also use homemade ingredients to make your own, natural exfoliant that performs just as well, if not better, than store-bought products.

Pour 1 tbsp. of oatmeal on a plate, if you have dry skin. Or use 1 tbsp. of baking soda, if your skin is sensitive.


Add 1 tbsp. of either honey or olive oil to your exfoliant mixture. If your skin is dry, use olive oil to add some moisture, while sensitive skin requires something a bit more natural, such as honey.


Mix the two ingredients together, until you have the consistency of gravy. Rub the exfoliant on your skin, in a circular motion.


Rinse the ingredients off your skin with warm water. Avoid getting anything in your eyes, to prevent irritation.


Pat your skin dry with a towel, then apply a moisturizer to keep your skin soft.

Tips & Warnings

Exfoliate your skin a maximum of twice a week to help keep your skin's natural glow and vibrant complexion.
