Scrub away winter dry skin with this easy and all-natural DIY scrub

This time of year is a recipe for dry skin. Whether it’s the dry climate or winter weather, skin could use a little buff. To combat annoying dry skin, or just to show yourself a little love, here’s a do-it-yourself face and body scrub with ingredients you might already have in your kitchen. With a touch of that and a dash of this, you’ll be well on your way to an at-home spa treatment.



1 grapefruit
1 cup of sugar
1-3 tablespoons apricot oil


Cut the center pith from one full grapefruit, and place in the blender along with any leftover fruit and juices that might be available. Toss in about 1 cup of white sugar and add 1-3 tablespoons of apricot oil (depending on how wet vs. dry you would like the scrub to be). Blend on medium or high until you have the consistency you’re looking for; I think I blended ours for about 45 seconds in our Vitamix.
