Save your skin this winter

This is mainly for the ladies, but for those young men who desire beautifully glowing skin, have at it! Winter is upon us, and with the cold weather comes dry skin, particularly on the hands. At this time of year, we all know the struggle of dry, cracking skin is real as we constantly wash our hands during flu season. Obviously, no one enjoys the dryness that winter inflicts upon us, so treat your skin to some salvation in the form of this easy to make sugar scrub.


  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • Essential oils for desired fragrance

Just mix all the ingredients together, and voila! Rub it on your hands, and then rinse off for an equally exfoliating and moisturizing effect. The perfectly simple treatment for those dry hands.
