Wandering around a high-end beauty supply store can be fun, but why spring for expensive, chemical-laden cosmetics when you can make your own?
TakePart's food editors, Nichol and Sarah, have a simple recipe for a luxurious body scrub you can make for less than five bucks. The coarse sugar exfoliates, while olive oil moisturizes -- and better yet, it's scented with a liberal splash of rich, sweet vanilla. It's all-natural, affordable, and it works. So what are you waiting for? Keep it real. Make it at home.
