Three DIY Body Scrubs That Are Guaranteed to Soften Even the Driest Skin

With the seasons changing, your skin is likely going to get a little bit dry. The fluctuating temperatures and low humidity levels draw all the moisture from your skin, leaving it flaky and itchy. Sometimes the soaps and products you use in the summer to keep you clean end up stripping your body of the natural oils that protect your skin from harsh winds and cold temperatures.

The best part is that these recipes are all made with ingredients you probably already have in your house. With a scrub for every individual taste, whether you are into fresh citrus, earthy herb, or energizing coffee blend, these scrubs will be a welcome addition to any beauty routines.
