DIY Exfoliating Scrub

Chicago winter weather is notorious for being cold, long, and miserable, especially according to my mom. With the cold weather comes dry skin, chapped lips and in my case, a serious lack of moisture. Using the Epsom salts from my most recent Walgreens trip, I decided to make my own exfoliating scrub and it was one of the easiest DIY projects I’ve ever done. It took three minutes and I now have a simple, exfoliating scrub stored in a couple of extra spice jars (similar here). Because the Epsom salts were scented, I used a bit of brown sugar and un-scented oil to keep the scrub from being overwhelming. The brown sugar adds a finer exfoliant, maximizing the scrub’s efficiency. Next time, I plan to try a lemon scrub with unscented Epsom salts, brown sugar, lemon zest, and this lemon oil from Burt’s Bees.
