Does this chilly weather have you singing, "Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter..."?

Chances are your skin has been the unfortunate victim of this season's harsh conditions. Cold air, wind, indoor heat and low humidity can be exceptionally hard on our bodies, robbing them of the beautiful moisture and vibrancy they had just a few months ago. But that doesn't mean you have to live with dry scaly legs, chapped lips or a dull complexion until the temps start to rise again.

It also doesn't mean you have to slather your skin with a lot of synthetic products and chemicals.

We were able to connect with our natural beauty expert, Janice Cox, co-author of "EcoBeauty -- Scrubs, Rubs, Masks, and Bath Bombs for You and Your Friends." Click through the photo gallery below for some all-natural recipes that you can make at home to rehydrate, re-moisturize and replenish your skin the way Mother Nature intended.


One final tip: Remember to lock-in moisture after cleansing and bathing by using a rich body oil or cream right away and use a daily moisturizer that contains glycerin, aloe and vitamin E.
