This is probably the best skin polish, ever. It’s like getting a microdermabrasion treatment, at one-millionth the cost. And I bet good money that you already have the ingredients at home: baking soda & soap.
Baking soda is unlike other scrubs – the micro grains act like sandpaper, which sounds like the last thing you’d want for your skin, expect for when you do. It’s still gentle enough – but it does such an amazing job at removing that dead, outer layer of the skin: the layer that is responsible for dullness and fine wrinkles and where sun-damage lies. It also helps with those miserable blackheads that like to pop up! No worries, with a little baking soda – bumps become smooth, skin glows… cakes rise, it’s amazing stuff.
Skin Polishing Recipe 
For Skin So Smooth You Believe It.
DIY Skin Polishing Recipe
Ingredients:
baking soda
your normal face wash
Directions:
pour a little face wash in the palm of your hand
add baking soda until you create a paste
very gently scrub your face, or why not grab your body wash, jump in the shower and  do your whole body!
wash with water and then feel how incredibly smooth your skin is!
Do this once or twice a month, but no more than that or your skin may get sensitive and peel. This treatment not only keeps your skin renewed, but it makes for better absorption of the moisturisers and serums that you apply, which means you get more benefit out of your products. Just make sure there are no chemicals in your products, you don’t want your new skin soaking all that in.

Because there are no harsh chemicals, it is really gentle on your skin yet really effective at the same time. Those dead skin cells of yours will be gone before you know it.
So go ahead and check out the Sweet Coconut Body Polish below. ENJOY!
Body Polish
What You Need:
3 Cups Brown Sugar
¼ Cup Coconut Oil
¼ Cup Argan Oil
¼ Body Wash, the Gel kind, of your choice (preferably vanilla.
Isopropyl Alcohol
1 big mixing bowl
1 clean and empty spray bottle
1 clean and empty air tight container
What To Do:
First thing is first, you wanna get your container ready. Again, make sure that it is air tight, it is clean, and it is dry. Then you want to put some of your alcohol into the spray bottle and spray the inside of your container. Kind of like when you’re baking, you just wanna thinly “coat” the inside but you don’t want it to be really wet. Then set the container aside to dry.
The next thing to do is to take your mixing bowl and simply put your sugar, coconut oil, argan oil, and body wash in and mix together. Keep on doing so until you have a nice, thick consistency.
TIP: In cold weather, coconut oil tends to harden. If this is the case, just pop it in the microwave for a couple seconds until melted.
Then simply spoon into your air tight container, seal the lid, and keep it at room temp. Voila! Your homemade sweet coconut body polish is done!
How To Use It:
The first thing you wanna do is take a nice hot shower- soap and cleanse as you normally would, the important thing is that the water is hot. You see, you want to really open up your pores for the polish to be most effective.
When done, take your polish and massage gently all over your body focusing on dry, rough patches of skin, your elbows, knees, heels of your feet. You can use a loofa if you like and even a pumice stone on the harder areas. Keep on massaging for about 7-10 minutes. You want your skin to get all the good stuff and get rid of all the bad, so to speak. (dead skin cells).
Rinse off with luke warm water. On a hot day, cold water would actually be better to help tighten your skin, but only if you can take the chill!
Follow up with your favorite moisturizer. Repeat once a month.
