You can also apply this scrub to your entire body, paying more attention to your elbows, knees, feet, and hands. Rub the solution in circular motions over your skin for 3 to 5 minutes and let it sit for 7 to 10 minutes, and then take a bath in lukewarm water to clear off the scrub from your body. Conclude the procedure by applying a generous amount of moisturiser on to your entire body.
