DIY Skin Renewal Homemade Sugar Body Scrub

During the winter, my skin tends to get extremely dry. As in the flakey kind of dry. It is definitely not cute and most definitely not comfortable. It is super itchy then I start to scratch endlessly. I know it is a big no-no but it is the only relief I know!

Then I started to do some research on how to take the dry flaky skin away. Yes, I know I can use moisturizer but first, the dry skin needs to be sloughed off. As a lover of all things natural, I came up with a homemade body scrub that promises to help your skin renew without the risk of doing it too much.
