When fall comes around, the weather can make your skin dry and dull. I know that during the winter, my skin often feels extremely chapped, and is never smooth. Usually, I like to whip out some olive oil and try out some new masks and scrubs. This time, I opted to use the ever growing mint leaves from my backyard. If you have mint in your backyard, you know that it will spread like a weed! Because I wanted to use up the leaves, I decided to incorporate them into this scrub. Usually, I like to apply this scrub on my feet and legs. If you want to apply this on your face, I would advise leaving the lime zest/juice out, because skin get easily get irritated from it. I always make sure to test out scrubs/exfoliants on a small portion of my skin first, because all skin types are different. If you know you have sensitive skin, leave out the mint and lime, and enjoy the sole powers of the olive oil and sugar.
