Homemade Sugar Scrub

I don't know about you or how it is where you live, but the cold winter weather where I am is taking some toll on my skin. I've always wanted to try a sugar scrub to help with exfoliation, but instead of going out and buying a jar I decided to concoct my own. Part experiment, part I'm too cheap to buy something that I have the ingredients to make. I looked up several recipes and after seeing what goes in a basic scrub, I came up with my own mix. I just eyeballed the measurements, but pretty much three-fourths of the mix is sugar and one-fourth is a mix of everything else. I took the mixture and put it in a glass jar (a thrift store purchase!) that I could keep in my shower. Totally living up to my self proclaimed diy bargain ways :)

I'm excited to try this! What are some of your cold winter skin tips?
