Dry air, how I loathe thee. In the winter my hands crack and bleed because of it. No matter how expensive the lotion, nothing works except a good body scrub. A few years ago when I was in Miami, I paid $30 for this Dead Sea salt scrub:
and it works really well but because I am cheap, I have to conserve it as best as I can… until I came across this RECIPE for homemade sugar scrub. It works just as well as the Dead Sea stuff and is so easy to make. I even added a cute little label that I made on photo shop (with help from HER) and now it doubles as bathroom décor.
I have been doing some painting here and there and I found that in addition to giving you silky smooth skin, this sugar scrub also works wonders with removing dry paint from your hands.
