3 DIY Body Polisher Recipes You Need to Try This Winter

Smooth glowing and supple skin, isn’t that what we all want? With winter comes dryness and dullness, and you need to take special care of your skin during the colder months. Exfoliation is an essential part of our beauty routine. Normal exfoliators slough off the dead cells, but make skin dry and stretchy. In today’s post, I will share with you 3 body polisher recipes which will give you glowy skin sans the dryness. What’s more, you may even skip the moisturizer right after. Let’s get started.

3 DIY Body Polisher Recipes You Need to Try This Winter

1. Almond-Milk Body Scrub: Milk has lactic acid and works to remove dead skin cells while the almond powder or meal softens skin. The clay is well known to be fantastic for oil absorption, removal of impurities and skin detox. Together they make a great combo for keeping winter dullness at bay.

• 1 cup bentonite clay, or multani mitti
• 1/4 cup whole milk powder or low-fat milk
