1. Get Fresh. Puree a slice of cucumber and a tablespoon of plain Yoplait® yogurt for a soothing face mask. Just rub the mixture over your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, and then wash it off with warm water. It's a beautiful, natural way to refresh your skin! 

2. Soak it Up. Create an invigorating soak for your feet by adding orange, grapefruit, lemon and lime peels to a small tub of hot water. Soak your feet until the water cools. Gently dry your tootsies and apply lotion. Finish it off with a pair of pretty, cozy socks! 

3. Get Scrubbin'. This recipe for Lemon Sugar Body Scrub is so easy and turns bathtime into a truly relaxing experience. You won't believe how soft your skin will be after being treated with this sugar scrub. Here's how to make a batch in your own kitchen: 

Pour some coarse turbinado sugar into a large bowl.
