DIY Treatment for Dry Skin on Legs

What do you do about dry, itchy legs? In the winter when the air is more arid, dry skin on legs can be a pesky beauty problem. Whether you need to treat your legs for spring break or get them ready to show off when the weather warms up, try this DIY skin care treatment to keep your legs smooth and gorgeous. I use a homemade body scrub with one of the most magnificent moisturizing ingredients for all your homemade beauty care - virgin olive oil! Try this recipe out. It works really well before shaving to prep your skin for perfection.

Homemade body scrub for dry skin on legs:

  • 1 cup sugar (use the nice,cane sugar crystals not refined white sugar!)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons apple juice
  • 4 drops grapefruit essential oil 

Mix everything together in a bowl. I love the grapefruit aroma, but you can use another essential oil, say lavender and vanilla or patchouli and sweet orange. You can also skip the aromatherapy if you want. I use grapefruit because it is supposed to be good for cellulite, although I can't say that it actually makes a difference.

Start your DIY exfoliation experience before getting in the shower. Use your loofah to gently loosen dry skin cells. Then turn on the water and use your loofah or other exfoliating tool (wash cloth works!) to scrub your legs with the body scrub. Start with your feet and work your way up. I actually sit down for this. Use a circular motion and take your time. Not only does this help to soften your legs and fight dry skin, but it also is a blood circulation booster.

After stepping out of the shower, lightly dry your skin and then slather on the body butter. The olive oil from the homemade scrub will moisturize, but you still want to use a good cream or butter after bathing. You can use this homemade scrub on your whole body, not just your legs.
