Naturally Exfoliate Your Skin Using the Following Ingredients Posted on 02 Aug 11:23 , 0 comments

Exfoliation refers to the process of removing old, dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It can be done a number of ways but one of the most useful is with ingredients you find in your home and kitchen pantry. You read that right! Common kitchen supplies make great natural exfoliators.

Regularly exfoliating the skin means that you remove the cells that clog pores and prevent new cells from growing. It also allows your moisturizer to penetrate the skin better. The end result is radiant, glowing skin which is something we know you appreciate.

Here are some ingredients you can use right now:

  • Mix finely ground oats with honey and yogurt to create a mask for your face. Gently scrub it onto the skin in a circular motion. Let it sit on your face for 15-30 minutes before rinsing it off and washing your face as usual.
  • Baking soda. Mix a little bit of water with the product to make a paste. Apply it to your face and then rinse and wash it off using a mild soap. Baking soda is inexpensive and a highly effective natural exfoliator.
  • Use pure cane sugar and mix it with a massage oil such as olive, almond or jojoba. Make it into a paste that you apply to the skin in a circular motion. Rinse and wash as you normally would making sure to use a good skin care cream afterwards to prevent your skin from drying out.
  • Sea Salt. Full of trace minerals that rejuvenate dry or irritated skin, sea salt makes a perfect ingredient for homemade masks. Mix it with the massage oil of your choice the way you would with sugar and scrub your face gently with it. Work in a small circular motion before rinsing and washing it off of your skin.

Exfoliating your skin helps remove dead cells, leaving it looking and feeling soft once again. Following exfoliation, use a good, heavy cream or lotion to restore moisture to the skin.
