What’s your skincare routine? Most women focus on cleansing, moisturizing and sun protection. While those steps are all important to your facial health, there’s one vital step missing — exfoliation.
Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from your face and keeps your pores squeaky clean. A regular facial is a great way to keep your skin exfoliated, but there are a few things you can do in between appointments to keep your skin looking radiant. By using a few natural products that are probably already in your home, you can maintain your youthful look.
This handy ingredient isn’t just useful in cakes; it’s also great at exfoliating the skin. It has the perfect consistency to remove dull skin cells from your face without irritation. Plus, it’s great at preventing acne. Consider adding a teaspoon (or less) to your favorite face wash to give your skin care routine the boost it needs.
This sweet treat works to breakdown dirt and oil that’s attached to your skin. It’s great at boosting skin cell production too. To make an exfoliating scrub, mix a half-cup of sugar with olive oil. Apply it to your skin and rinse off.
Don’t just have a cup at breakfast; break it out at night for a little late night exfoliating. Yogurt contains lactic acid, which, when applied to the face, acts just like prescription skin care treatments. Use plain yogurt as a facial mask for about 20 minutes, then rinse.
