Many areas of the skin have a tendency to become dry, itchy and callused if they’re not taken care of. Fortunately, there are products on the market for healing dry skin, taking care of callused feet, and creams that treat itchy skin; but there are also home remedies that cost less, and work better than anything you can buy in a bottle.

  • Use a coffee, sugar, and vanilla mixture on the knees, elbows, and feet or other areas of the skin that are rough. This combination not only smells good because of the relaxing scent of vanilla extract, but it also works because the coffee has very strong antioxidants, and the sugar works as an exfoliator to smooth skin.

  • To create the scrub described above, gather a one-fourth measuring cup, teaspoon of vanilla extract, half cup of fresh coffee grinds and a cup of sugar. Once you’ve done this, mix olive oil with the vanilla extract in a small bowl. In a slightly larger bowl, put the grinds and sugar together, and then pour the liquid ingredients into a bowl holding the sugar and coffee grinds.
Next, mix the ingredients together to make a paste. When you are finished, take the bowl into the shower with you, and shower as normal. Before getting out of the shower, start massaging the scrub onto your skin, and keep in mind that you are able to use this scrub over the entire body for increased circulation.

Avoid using the scrub on broken or sensitive skin and your face. For skin that is dry and bumpy, use this scrub twice a week, instead of once a week like with normal skin.

  • Avoid dark knees and elbows by moisturizing two times daily. If you happen to run out of lotion in your home, use olive oil to massage onto dry knees and elbows. It is important for your joints to stay hydrated so they don’t become dry and unattractively dark. You should also pay special attention to your elbows and knees in the shower when you’re exfoliating the body. Also, rub your joints a few seconds longer than the rest of your body to keep the skin from darkening.
