Maintaining silky smooth skin during fall and winter months takes a little extra work. Body scrubs can help banish dry skin, and lately I'm a fan of EcoTools Body Scrub made with exfoliating walnut shells. The scrub has a thick consistency and looks quite grainy in the bottle, but lathers up nicely in the shower and leaves behind a fresh, minty scent. The scrub works great on legs, and I'd also recommend it for pampering hands and feet. If you're looking for an affordable product (the scrub is $6.99 at or an earth-friendly beauty line (the scrub is paraben free and not tested on animals), check out EcoTools at
