2 Winter Skincare DIY Delights

Hello, my fabulous fellow skincare enthusiasts!

I know that winter can be tough on our skin, especially for those of us who have been around the block a few times (hello, 40s!). These DIY skincare treats aren't just indulgent; they're also packed with natural ingredients that will help combat dryness and dullness. Plus, the lovely scents will transport you to a winter wonderland every time you use them!

So, grab your apron, gather your ingredients, and let's get started on these winter wonders – Gingerbread Body Scrub and Sugar Cookie Lip Scrub.

Gingerbread Body Scrub

Picture this – you're exfoliating your skin with the warm and spicy aroma of gingerbread, and your bathroom transforms into a cozy winter haven. This DIY body scrub is not only decadent but also packed with skincare benefits.


  • 1 cup of brown sugar (great for gentle exfoliation)
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil (nourishing and hydrating)
  • 1 tablespoon of ground ginger (antioxidant and anti-inflammatory)
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon (skin brightening and exfoliating)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (smells heavenly)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, ground ginger, and cinnamon.
  2. Add the coconut oil and vanilla extract, then mix until you have a scrub-like consistency.
  3. Store your gingerbread body scrub in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

How to use:

In the shower, scoop out a small amount of this delightful concoction and gently massage it onto damp skin in circular motions. Rinse off, and you'll be left with soft, radiant skin that smells like your favorite holiday treat.

Sugar Cookie Lip Scrub

Our lips deserve some TLC in the colder months, and what better way to do it than with a lip scrub that's as sweet as a sugar cookie? This recipe will leave your pout plump and ready for some extra kisses under the mistletoe.


  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar (gentle exfoliation for delicate lip skin)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil (moisturizing and healing)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey (soothing and hydrating)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract (adds a delicious scent)


  1. Mix the brown sugar, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla extract in a small bowl until it forms a paste.

How to use:

Gently apply this sugar cookie lip scrub to your lips, exfoliating in a circular motion for about a minute. Wipe it off with a damp cloth or simply lick it away (it's safe and delicious). Your lips will feel incredibly smooth and ready to embrace your favorite winter lipstick.

Remember, our skin is a reflection of how well we take care of ourselves. So, while you're embracing these delightful DIY skincare recipes, don't forget to stay hydrated, maintain a balanced diet, and get plenty of beauty sleep. Your skin will thank you!
