{Borrowed DIY: Homemade Body Scrub}

The cold weather and dry air this winter has really taken it's toll on my skin. No matter the amount of lotion that I apply all day long, my hands, face, and especially my feet have been extremely dry. I found this homemade body scrub recipe last night that includes ingredients that we should all have around the house - the salt and sugar will exfoliate, the honey will soften the skin, and the olive oil will moisturize. Tonight when I get home from work - I plan to whip up this concoction and see if it does the trick. I'll let you know how it goes!

Step One: Mix together ¼ cup each of coarse sea salt and sugar

Step Two: Mix in 1 tbsp of honey, and 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil (preferably organic)

Step Three (and this is optional): Shake in a few drops of your favorite essential oil to make the scrub scented. 6 drops of the oil should do the trick!

Step Four: Stir together until the mixture looks like wet sand, then scrub away. Be sure to use the mixture within a half hour or so to prevent the sugar and salt from dissolving.
