From time to time your skin needs the benefits of a deep cleanse to get rid of all those impurities that accumulate and make it dull over time. That is why exfoliation becomes essential to improve its appearance and to always keep it impeccable, and glowing. We will teach you how to exfoliate the body with homemade products here.
Steps to follow:
Exfoliating the body is a beauty ritual that you must carry out at least once a week if you want to keep your skin flawless, hydrated and radiant. Exfoliation removes all dead skin cells, promotes skin regeneration, eliminates all impurities and the end result is a much smoother and more beautiful dermis. In addition, you should know that it is a spectacular aesthetic task to reactivate blood circulation and combat annoying conditions such as cellulite and orange peel. Before starting, keep in mind that it is important to exfoliate the skin of the body at the time of the shower or bath, since if you do it on wet skin you protect its natural structure and do not cause irritation or dryness.
There are several homemade products that you can use as body scrubs, so it is not necessary to use commercial lotions. One of the most popular is sugar, either white or brown, as its grain is perfect for effectively removing dead skin. We suggest the following options to prepare a sugar-based scrub:
- Sugar and lemon scrub: mix 3 tablespoons of sugar, the juice of half a lemon and 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
- Honey & Sugar Scrub: Mix 1/2 cup of white sugar, 3 tablespoons of honey, and 2 tablespoons of olive or almond oil.
- Sugar Scrub and Body Cream: Mix 3 tablespoons of your moisturizing body cream with 2 tablespoons of sugar.
If you are not satisfied with just exfoliating the skin of the body, but you also want this task to serve you to face the unsightly cellulite of certain areas, then coffee will be your best option. Caffeine is excellent for promoting circulation of blood flow, reducing cellulite and making the skin regain its smoothness and firmness. To make a coffee body scrub, you just need to mix 2 cups of ground coffee, half a cup of white sugar and 3 tablespoons of olive or almond oil.
