Olive oil has been used as natural skin care remedies by Italians for centuries. This natural exfoliant made of olive oil and sea salt (or Epsom salts) only takes a few seconds to make, yet will leave your skin feeling soft and supple for days. These ingredients are inexpensive and can be purchased at a local grocery store. This scrub also helps soften the extra dry parts of the body such as the hands, knees, elbows and heels of the feet.
