While olive oil can be used to moisturize your skin, it can also serve as exfoliator, removing dead skin cells and leaving your skin feeling soft and hydrated. To make an olive oil body scrub, mix 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with 2 tablespoons of honey and add ½ cup of sugar. If you prefer a more delicate scrub, use less sugar. Rubbing this mixture into your skin for approximately 60 seconds will gently exfoliate it, making your skin glowy and smooth.
