After a long day of being in the brisk cold or sitting in room with its heater on full blast, your skin might be feeling extremely thirsty. Slough off your dry skin with these 3 easy DIY recipes with ingredients you can grab straight from your pantry!
DIY BATH Brown Sugar & Lemon Body Scrub
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup salt
1 Tablespoon Kalamansi or Lemon

1 Tablespoon Honey
Mix together the brown sugar and salt. Then add in the kalamansi or lemon juice, virgin coconut oil and honey and mix well.
DIY BATH Oatmeal & Brown Sugar Body Scrub
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ground oatmeal - Not the instant kind
1/4 cup pure honey
3/4 to 1 cup of oil - Example: Extra virgin olive, Jojoba, Grapeseed or Sweet Almond oil
1/4 teaspoonx Essential or Fragrance oil of choice (like vanilla) - Optional
Mix the brown sugar and oatmeal together in a large bowl. Add the honey and drizzle the oil over the mix. Mix everything together. When your mix is saturated and sinks to the bottom of the bowl and you have oil on top, you're done. Add your essential oil or fragrance oil if you would like.
DIY BATH Coffee Body Scrub
1 cup gluten free oatmeal
1/2 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup organic coffee grounds - Brewed or fresh
1/2 cup raw honey
2 Tablespoons organic olive oil or grapeseed oil - Other high quality oil like almond, coconut, apricot kernal, or palm will do
Place oats (and coffee beans, if grinding fresh) in a food processor and pulse until fine. Add grounds, sugar and vitamin C crystals, and pulse a few times, then add honey and oil, as well as vitamin D drops, and pulse to form a paste. Transfer to a jar and store in the refrigerator. If you'd like, you can scoop out a small amount and keep in the bath, whatever you'll use that week.
