8. Winter Hair Mask

Healing masks aren’t just for your face! A hair mask can help moisturize your hair and protect it from the dry winter weather. You can make this hair mask recipe from Life of Blyss into a vegan recipe by using agave nectar in place of honey.

9. Pumpkin Foot Scrub

Pumpkins are still in season, so this is the perfect time of year to treat your feet with a pumpkin food scrub! Organic Authority has a fully food-based recipe that combines cooked pumpkin, brown sugar, coffee beans, olive oil, and lemon to make a moisturizing and invigorating scrub to soothe your winter tootsies.

10. Easy Winter Hand Salve

For many of us, our hands bear the brunt of the cold weather’s moisture-sapping. You can revitalize your dry, cracked skin with a simple winter hand salve that even helps if you suffer from eczema during these chilly months. A rich combination of shea butter, avocado oil, and vitamin E, this hand salve is sure to heal your hands this winter!
