Winter doesn't have to be dry and scaly.

With these 10 simple homemade spa treatments, you can give up the chemicals, toxins, and mystery ingredients found in your favorite commercial lotions and fight cold winds, blizzards, and freezing temperatures -- which can do major damage on skin and hair in winter.

Even better, these DIY beauty products rely on ingredients you may even already have in your kitchen: coffee, avocado, eggs, vodka, chocolate chips, yogurt, vegetables, honey, and more.

For an even greener twist, choose organic, Fair Trade ingredients as often as possible.
