Gallery: Banish dry winter skin with 7 all-natural body scrubs you can ...

 
Winter wreaks havoc on our skin, and whether you're dealing with greasy, ashy, or scaly "lizard" skin, a little TLC could work wonders. Body scrubs are great for exfoliating: they slough away dead skin cells and nourish the new skin beneath, leaving you soft and glowing all over.

When you create your own body care products, it's important to use the highest quality ingredients that you can afford. Everything you put on your skin gets absorbed into it, so take that into consideration when shopping for your scrub materials; try to use organic and fair-trade ingredients whenever you can. One way to keep costs low while still using quality ingredients is to pool resources with friends—decide which scrub you'd like to make, and then share costs evenly between you. An eight-pound bag of sea salt runs around $8 USD, and will create 10+ jars of body scrub, so if a few friends get together and pool cash together, everyone will be scouring themselves happily for months, at pennies per shower.

    Moreover sea salt is a natural detoxifier, as the salt absorbs the toxins from the skin.
