Don’t you just love when your skin is soft and smooth? Your delicate skin takes a beating in winter, though — especially common trouble spots such as hands, elbows, and heels. The answer to your dry-skin problems could be as simple as making some of this fantastic homemade salt scrub!
Your skin could really benefit from some extra care. Cold winter wind takes a toll, but staying inside is no solution: Indoor heat is also drying. Cracks, wrinkles and discomfort are typically the less-than-ideal result.
This exfoliating scrub is so easy to make and smells amazing!
Keep skin baby-soft throughout winter
With a good scrubbing and moisturizing, winter skin can rebound and look younger yet again — at least for a while. Sure, you can splurge on a good scrub, but the price tag can be steep. So why not make your own with ingredients you already keep around?
Best of all, it’s an affordable way to make a really wonderful gift for friends. Add one or more favorite essential oils, and the lucky recipients are sure to be delighted.
