"Winter Skin" Remedy

Every year around this time, my skin becomes a dry, itchy mess that no lotion can cure. I'm feeling relief this year with a simple sugar scrub.

Sugar Scrub

1/4 cup sugar
Olive oil
Essential Oil (optional)

Put sugar in a small bowl and gradually add olive oil until mixture has a thin paste-ish consistency. If you like, add a couple drops of EO for aroma therapy.

Apply at the end of your shower, rubbing in a circular motion. Air dry or pat dry with a towel. Enjoy your silky skin all day!

I really wish I had been using this on my belly when I was pregnant. It feels like it would be good stretch mark prevention!
