Exfoliating Using Olive Oil and Sea Salt

Do you recommend olive oil and sea salt to exfoliate and for how long and how often? I do 2 minutes if using a commercial scrub.
Thanks so much for your advice.

This is supposedly a great scrub to exfoliate and replenish dry skin, but it is not advised to be used on the face, especially if you have overly sensitive, acne-prone skin, as the granules can damage the skin. If you do use it on your face, opt for the smallest salt granuesl possible.

Here is a recipe for one that's good: inhabitat.com/.../aftershave-splash

Mediterranean Olive Oil Scrub
1/2 cup of sea salt.
1/2 cup of brown sugar (like muscovado or demerara)
1/4 cup of olive oil.
A couple of drops of orange essential oil.

I think olive oil and sugar would be a gentler scrub. I would just go over all areas lightly. 2 minutes seems like a long time.
