Brown Sugar and Almond Body Scrub {homemade}

I love body scrubs but sometimes they can be a little pricey. Here is an awesome homemade version without all the yucky stuff.

What you need:
- 1.5 cups of brown sugar
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract

Directions:
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together.  Put in a fancy mason jar to store it because what doesn't look better in a mason jar?  :)

Tips:
-Make sure to use this in the shower because it is messy.  Rinse off with warm water.
-The olive oil can make some showers a little slippery so use caution.
-After I use this I like to use a loofah with a little soap to get off some of the excess oil. 

Exfoliates are great to use 1-2 times a week.  Olive oil is a great moisturizer and antioxidant! Hello beautiful and soft skin.
