Is your skin looking dull and lifeless, with acne, blemished and wrinkles ruining your look? Lack of oil in the skin is one of the most common problems for women nowadays. The dermis (top layer of the skin) renews itself every few weeks, so it’s no wonder that our skin can get quite flaky and wrinkled.
When the skin regenerates, millions of dead skin cells are stuck on the surface layer. Over time, the dead skin cells can accumulate and clog the pores which can lead to a slew of problems. This is why exfoliation of the skin is hugely important. However, the commercial exfoliators you can buy in the market are full of harmful chemicals and toxins which will harm the skin beyond the top layer, which is why you should try resolving the problem naturally.
How to exfoliate your skin naturally
There are many ways of exfoliating the skin naturally and they all work well. These natural solutions are far cheaper than commercial products, not to mention safer for your skin and health. They contain only natural and cheap ingredients which will remove all the dead skin cells from your skin, leaving it soft, smooth and clean without any impurities on the dermis.
Here are the 3 best natural scrubs for your skin:
Sugar has a mildly abrasive texture that works great for removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Mix ½ a cup of brown sugar with ½ a cup of coconut oil and 1/3 cup pineapple juice, then rub the mixture on your skin to exfoliate it and prevent the appearance of several skin problems. The sugar scrub will leave you with fresh, soft and smooth skin if you use it a few times per week.
The banana-honey exfoliating mask is simple to prepare and will keep your skin hydrated, soft and smooth. To prepare it, mash a banana and mix it with a few teaspoons of honey, then apply the mask on your face and leave it on for 20-30 minutes. Rinse with water in the end and use the mask once or twice a week to prevent the appearance of acne, blemished and wrinkles.
Lavender soap cleanse
You can remove all the dead skin pores on your face by cleaning it with lavender soap. First, you’ll need to open up your pores – boil a pot of water, then leave over it and let the steam clean your face. Next, rinse your face with water, then rub the lavender soap on your face. Leave it on for a few minutes, rinse with water and repeat the process every day.
No matter which of the remedies you choose, they will leave your skin fresh and smooth and prevent the appearance of many skin problems including wrinkles.
