Homemade facial scrubs for dry skin

applying scrubWhether your skin is oily or dry you need to exfoliate it once in a while to get rid of dead cells. Harsh abrasive scrubs are not suitable for extremely flaky, dry skins.

Use them once in two weeks (a month if your skin is too dry) and watch your face glow.
