Exfoliating our body with normal or supposedly exfoliating soaps is not enough for us. Many soaps, despite being exfoliants, are not natural, which causes us to have an unfavorable reaction. In my case I used to suffer a lot from acne, and being a man, I really did not know much about what to do to eliminate skin imperfections or acne in my body.I just thought that acne used to come out on my face, so I just tried to exfoliate my face with sugar or natural soaps.

But later I noticed that my back had enough acne and blemishes, which caused me embarrassment to walk without a shirt when I went to the beach or pool. So I started researching and I tried 4 exfoliates that are made with essential oils, which really helped me a lot.

1) Exfoliating for the face and removing acne spots

To exfoliate my face I use the following ingredients.

  • 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar
  • 1 drop of eucalyptus essential oil
  • 1 drop of lavender essential oil
  • 1 drop of lemon essential oil
  • 1 drop of palo santo essential oil

This exfoliating is special to use at night, or before sleeping, to eliminate dead cells and impurities, and allow our skin to regenerate throughout the night. You can exfoliate once a week or once every 15 days.

2) Exfoliating for dry and flaccid skin


  • ½ cup of Epsom salts (100 g)
  • 1 tablespoon of almond essential oil (15 g)
  • 1 teaspoon of green tea (10 ml)

The preparation of this scrub, is simple just mix everything, and begin to apply it throughout your body, in a circular way.

Almond essential oil is one of the most skin-friendly products. Not only does it nourish it, it also makes it firmer. Epsom salts are an ingredient that removes impurities in a very soft way.

3) Exfoliating to prevent wrinkles

This exfoliating, I do not use it but if my mom, and I thought it good to share it with you.


  • 3 tablespoons ground coffee
  • ½ teaspoon of juniper essential oil

Coffee is very good as an exfoliant, helps to eliminate dead cells, while juniper oil helps to eliminate red areas caused by circulation problems, eliminates toxins by promoting perspiration, heals superficial wounds quickly.

4) Exfoliating for skin burned by the sun


  • 1 cup of brown sugar (225 g)
  • 1 tablespoon mint essential oil

This scrub is ideal for treating skin that has been exposed to excess sun, mint essential oil is ideal to combat burns, while brown sugar, removes impurities from the deeper layers of the skin without causing any damage.

The exfoliant that I use the most is the number 1, since it has lemon oil and this helps me to eliminate the spots on my back. I hope that these 4 scrubs you can put into practice, if so, do not hesitate to tell us your experience in the comments.
