Top 5 all Natural Exfoliating Treatments
With our current economy and people trying to save money, it can be difficult to find the additional money to spend on some of our favorite skincare products. Due to these difficult times, a lot of people have become more creative and found interesting ways to create incredible products at home!
It may sound a little strange but you can recycle your morning coffee grounds and use them as an effective exfoliator. If you have sensitive skin though, you will want to avoid using the coffee grounds on your face. Make sure to use a strainer or cheese cloth over the drain before you rinse off the coffee grounds so you don’t clog the pipes in your sink!
With the increasing number of harsh ingredients and chemicals used within most facial scrubs, a simple sugar scrub is a sweet solution. What happens when you cook or bake with sugar and attempt to mix sugar with a liquid? It gets a little thicker and incredibly grainy. This makes sugar a perfect solution for exfoliating your skin and also hydrates your skin beautifully without clogging your pores. Rinse off with warm water.
3. Baking Soda
Baking soda is one of those ingredients that can be used for just about anything from toothpaste to anti-itch compounds. You can take 3 parts water to 1 part baking soda to create a tingly facial paste that can exfoliate your dead skin and leave it baby soft.
If you have ever looked at or purchased any facial scrubs or exfoliators, you may have noticed a vast majority of them contain oatmeal. It is also a very gentle exfoliator that is not only cheap but effective.
Cornmeal has a fine grainy texture that is perfect for scrubbing away dry and dead skin cells from your face and body.
Remember to apply oil-free moisturizer to your skin after using any type of scrub or facial to help keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. Your skin will be glowing and fresh instantly! Happy exfoliating!
