Dry skin? Try this DIY sugar scrub, you'll love it!

Dark, dreary days, blistering cold wind, dry cracked skin…do you have the winter weather beauty blues?

Its a little early to be dealing with intensely dry skin symptoms. Its not even Christmas yet?! But with the holidays in full swing, now is the time to pamper yourself to hydration so that you can shine through the festivities. 


Here, the best DIY skin treatments that ease dryness, flaking or dullness using ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen pantry:


DIY Lemon Sugar Scrub

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 cup of sugar

Juice from half of lemon

Start by mixing Olive Oil and Lemon together.  Mix ingredients directly in a small glass jar that has a lid.  Cover. Shake well until ingredients combine.  Open the jar, add honey.  Cover and shake well. Add half of the sugar(1/4 cup). Mix well, then add the second half of sugar. Give it one last shake and voila!


These portions will make just enough to fully exfoliate your face and body once.  The batch may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. For skin that begs to be touched, use twice a week on face and body followed by your favorite moisturizer.
