Exfoliate the natural way
Exfoliating is an important part of a balanced skin care routine, especially during the winter when your skin needs a bit more care and attention. You can get all sorts of scrubs for the body and face nowadays, but which ones are really best for your skin?
When it comes to choosing your exfoliant, your best bet is to stick to natural scrubs. A large amount of cosmetic exfoliants contain plastic scrubbing beads instead of natural things that can do the same job. This can mean that the scrubs are too harsh on your complexion and can remove too much skin or even damage it.
Natural exfoliants are a great option that contain a number of benefits. Not only are they gentler to skin, but many of them release oils as you use them, which leads to softer skin. However, there are still a number of options to choose from. Here are a couple of the most popular natural exfoliants for you try.
Sugar is a great exfoliant for skin and can offer a range of scrub levels depending on how it is ground. More sensitive skin can benefit from a softer sugar scrub, while anyone that needs some extra scrubbing power can opt for a courser exfoliant.
As well as being great for face, body and lips for scrubbing away dead skin, sugar also helps your skin to produce new cells and results in a softer complexion. It contains glycolic acid - a totally natural product - which helps to break down the protein that causes dead skin to stay put. This means you don't need to scrub as hard, which minimises damage to your skin.
Ground nuts and fruit
Ground seeds and nuts are fantastic when it comes to sloughing off dead skins and revealing new, healthy skin for a brighter complexion. They are a harsher scrub than sugar, which means they are generally good for using on the body and on facial skin that is oily.
Some of the ground nuts - such as almonds - can also release small amounts of oil as you scrub, which helps to keep skin soft and supple.
Whatever scrub you choose it is important to remember not to overdo it. You should only exfoliate once or twice a week and ensure you moisturise after doing so. It is best to exfoliate at night as your skin rejuvenates itself when you sleep, which restores its matte finish.
