Q: I absolutely love St. Ives Facials scrubs, but I know they aren't the best for the environment, or the chemicals for my face. I've heard that I can make a great facial scrub out of some normal kitchen ingredients like brown sugar and coffee grounds — or even olive oil!
I would love to make a facial scrub that I can use and potentially recommend to friends as well. Can you help?

Those suggestions are a little better as body scrubs, however. For a more delicate facial scrub, try some of these ideas:
