1. Revive your face with a scrub.
In a bowl, place 2 Tbs. of brown sugar, which buffs away dead, dry skin. Add 2 Tbs. plain yogurt to hold the scrub together and add moisture to skin. Mix in 3 drops of energizing peppermint essential oil (optional). Stir in 1 tsp. of anti-inflammatory, skin-soothing honey. Dampen your face and gently massage the scrub into skin for 1 minute.
2. Restore moisture with a mask.
Combine: 1 Tbs. honey, 1 egg yolk, 1/2 tsp. olive oil, and 1 Tbs. yogurt. Apply to clean, dry skin, leave on for 5 minutes, and rinse.
3. Use a fall-inspired facial cleanser.
In a large bowl, combine: 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup dried oatmeal, 1 Tbs. honey, and 3 Tbs. brown sugar. Mix until creamy, and then massage onto damp skin for 10 seconds and rinse.
4. Make your lips kissable.
In a small resealable jar, mix 1 Tbs. solid coconut oil, 1 tsp. honey, and 2 tsp. brown sugar. Scoop out the scrub with your finger and buff lips for 10 seconds in gentle circular motions. Rinse (or lick!) clean.
5. Soften hands with a soak
In a large bowl, combine: 2 cups warm water, 1 cup apple cider vinegar (when diluted, it shouldn’t sting any painful cracks), and 3 Tbs. olive oil. Soak hands for 10 minutes, then remove and pat dry. Immediately follow with a rich hand cream containing urea, a humectant that locks in moisture and has antibacterial properties to ward off infection.
6. Make skin silky and glowing with a pumpkin pie-inspired scrub.
In a sealable container, mix: 1 cup granulated sugar, ¼ cup olive oil, ¼ cup pumpkin puree (canned or fresh), and 2 Tbs. of pumpkin pie spice. In the shower, massage the deliciously scented scrub all over your body for 1 minute, then rinse.
7. Turn leftover Halloween candy into a sugar scrub.
Combine: 3 Tbs. ground chocolate (1 normal-size bar or 3 to 4 minis), 1/2 cup ground hard candy (approximately 10 candies), and 2 Tbs. olive oil. In a blender or food processor, grind the hard candy until it becomes a fine powder and pour it into a large bowl. Do the same with the chocolate, then mix it and the olive oil with the hard-candy powder. With your fingers, gently massage the scrub into damp skin for 10 to 20 seconds, then rinse with warm water. (You can store the leftover scrub in a small, resealable jar for up to one week—the oil helps keep the mixture from clumping and getting sticky.)

9. Exfoliate your heels.
In a small resealable container, mix: 1/2 cup coconut oil (melt for 10-20 seconds in microwave if necessary), 1 1/4 cup white sugar, and 2 Tbs. lime juice. Once the ingredients are well-blended, scoop out a quarter-size amount of the scrub with your fingers and apply to your heels in a circular motion for 20 to 30 seconds, then rinse off the sugar with water and pat dry.
