Dr Oz: Super Body Scrub Recipe

Fix your most annoying complaints with ingredients you already have in your kitchen.  For this segment, Dr Oz spoke to 2 audience members who wanted to learn how to lighten up stretch marks and how to soften dry, cracked skin.  Check out Dr Oz’s recipes below and help get rid of those irritating issues.

The first audience member wanted to fix her stretch marks.  She has had them for 25 years following her first pregnancy.  Over the years, she tried lightening creams and cocoa butter but nothing has worked.

Dr Oz: Stretch Mark Scrub Recipe

3 Tbsp white sugar Dr Oz's Body Scrub Recipe
1 tsp lemon juice
¼ C whole milk

Place the ingredients into a bowl.  Thoroughly mix the ingredients.  Saturate a body brush with the mixture and brush it onto the troubled area.  Dr Oz used the brush and scrubbed the mixture onto her belly.  (What a brave, brave soul she was to bare her midsection on national television.)

Audience member 2 had rough, dry, cracked elbows.  She stated that her elbows have looked like that off and on for 5 years.  It gets better and then it gets worse again.

Dr Oz: Elephant Elbow Scrub Recipe

½ tsp wheat germ
2 Tbsp oats
1 tsp coconut oil
¼ C cream

Mix the ingredients and pour into cellophane wrap.  Place the elbow onto cellophane and wrap your elbow.  Massage the scrub into your elbow. Leave on for 15-20 minutes to break through crusty barrier.  (With a name like Elephant Elbow Scrub, it better work!)

Comments to Dr Oz: Super Body Scrub & Elephant Elbow Scrub Recipes

  1. wasnt that coconut oil on the recipe.??? not cocoa oil>>>>>>>

  2. yes I’m positive it was coconut oil not cocoa oil

  3. Yes- he had “coconut oil” on the show.

  4. So sorry about the typo! Thanks for pointing it out… the post has been updated :)

  5. What kind of Cream?

  6. What kind of cream for the elbow recipe?

  7. unfortunately, I don’t recall them specifying the type of cream… but I’d imagine that heavy cream, whole milk, or anything similar would work well since it has lactic acid and would be quite moisturizing for your skin…

  8. I beleive the the C cream mentioned is for COLD CREAM for the elbow recipe.

  9. with the stretch mark scrub it doesn’t specify how long to scrub for or how often or long long till you get results

  10. Sharon Plaski says:

    for the elephant elbow scrub, do you only do this once and then do you apply a cream? Not sure the directions end with leave on 15-20min. then what?
