One of the best parts of summer is soaking up the sun. However, it’s no surprise that the harsh heat can come with some drawbacks, namely dry skin. Before running to the drugstore for an exfoliating scrub, think twice! Most over-the-counter products are loaded with chemicals.

We’ve compiled a list of ultra-easy, DIY body scrubs that will keep your skin healthy and smooth all season long.
