You’ll never know how much you actually like making things until you have no other choice but to. Such is the case in my home, where I’ve traded Dunkin Donuts for pancakes and ten different body lotions for a tub of shea butter. Now that I’m contemplating a transition to all waste-free products, I’m genuinely eager to start making my own DIY leg scrub and other homemade beauty concoctions.

There are obvious benefits to body exfoliation; dead skin cell turnover, improving skin texture, and nourishing the skin, to name a few. But when it comes to scrubbing the legs specifically, certain ingredients are ideal for prepping before a shave and helping to prevent ingrown hairs. Plus, with summer on the horizon and your hot weather wardrobe ready to make its debut, you might as well get those gams into gear.

Ahead, seven camera-ready DIY leg and body scrubs that aren’t just a pretty face. They’re effective and long-lasting too.
