The battle to fight tired and dry skin has begun again now that I have left tropical paradise and am back in my hometown in Virginia where giant walls of snow still line the streets – lasting evidence of the giant snow storm that hit the east coast last week. Now Fighting dull and de-hydrated skin may feel like an uphill battle, but with these lovely DIYs you can give your skin (and body!) the love that it deserves by both indulging in some relaxing and soothing “me-time” and moisturizing away any rough patches.

Nothing is more soothing in the dead of winter than a warm steamy bath. So start off by soaking in the tub and using either A Pumpkin and a Princess’ peppermint bath salts for a whiff of wintry goodness or opt for Dear Crissy’s detox bath salts to energize your mind and spirit. Sit back, relax, catch up with Netflix, and allow your muscles to unwind from a long day. Just make sure to lock in some moisture by ending your pamper session with Lia Griffith’s Homemade Whipped Body Butter.
