Due to High Altitude, freezing temps, and running heaters my skin is SUPER dry. The only thing that seems to allowing relief has been sugar scrubs. I wanted to put some of the recipes I've come up with here simply because it's fun. I am now a huge fan of them and they cost pennies when made from your cupboard.
Chai Tea Sugar Scrub
1/2 sugar (white or brown)
3 Tbsp oil (olive or coconut are awesome)
1 Tbsp honey
contents of one Chai Tea bag
Store in water tight container. A great face and body scrub.
Be sure to rinse well as tea can settle in places you'd rather not have anything brewing!
Lemon Sugar Scrub
3 Tbsp oil (coconut or olive)
Peel of half lemon
-warm oil with peel and mix in sugar
juice of half lemon
Store in water tight container. Great for face and body.
