With an average humidity that hovers around 25 percent, the ultra-dry, sun-drenched weather makes Arizona a top destination for outdoor recreation. But the lack of humidity can also leave your skin parched and thirsty. Arizona's thriving spa industry answers the call of lackluster, dehydrated skin with a bevy of nourishing body scrubs. Banish dry skin with one of these moisture-replenishing, mood-enhancing body scrub treatments.
