The wedding season is on and we also have the day of love, Valentine's Day approaching. This is the time when you start with your grooming and make rounds to the salons and beauty parlour. But by sparing some time for yourself, instead of spending so much money, you can do certain things yourself as well at home. From doing your own facials to waxing, there is nothing you cannot do yourself except maybe for a haircut where you may not want to take a risk unless you know you are good at it. One such activity or step is back polishing which enhances the shine of your back if you want to wear anything low cut. How about making your own back scrub at home? Here are 5 scrubs you can make yourself that will help you out.
