Treat yourself to some of these sugar scrub recipes for winter skin. The sugar and oils soften your skin while the scents improve your mood.

This winter has actually been pretty mild here in Atlanta, but even if temps haven’t been particularly brutal, the dry air has done a number on my skin. These sugar scrubs for winter skin will help exfoliate and moisturize to heal your dried out hands, feet, knees, and elbows! 

Sugar scrubs work best when you store them in an airtight container. I like to use mason jars or reclaimed glass jars. If you’re going to use reclaimed jars, first be sure that you clean it out well, so you don’t end up with a scrub that smells vaguely of pasta sauce or marinated artichokes. Yuck!
