Coffee grounds      
Coffee grounds are good to revitalize all types of skin. It works very efficiently for dry skin.  This is the simplest homemade scrub for dry skin.

This will naturally exfoliate your skin which removing the dead skin cells from it leaving it fresh and cleansed.

Cleansing Cream and Sugar Scrub

Coconut oil is a good and age-old skin tonic while lemon exfoliates and softens your skin. Oil-based scrubs are very best for dry skin. 

Take ½ cup of coconut oil. If coconut oil is not available, you may use olive oil or almond oil in its place but use of peanut oil, vegetable oil or canola oil should be strictly avoided. Add 2 tbsp sugar to it and mix well. Now add 1 tbsp lemon juice to this mixture. This increases the cleansing properties of this scrub. Scrub it all over your freshly washed face.
