Sea salt and brown sugar are known for their exfoliating properties, because they work very much like a body scrub and promote the renewal of skin cells. In a bowl, combine enough sea salt/brown sugar with olive oil (or any essential oil, like coconut oil) until it reaches a suitably thick consistency. Use on coarse skin - areas like the knees, your elbows and soles of your feet - but remember not to overdo it, because pregnancy causes your skin to be more sensitive than usual.
