Lack of exfoliation can lead to a flat, dull, complexion. Dead skin flakes can build up on the skin’s surface, and without proper removal can lead to clogged pores acne, and a scaly appearance. Daily moisturization can help minimize the look of dry skin, but it’s important to shed those scales in a healthy, gently way. With so many variations of exfoliation to chose from, it may be hard to know where to turn. Different methods offer different results, so check out these tips to find the best technique for your skin.
Beware of Microbeads
Some companies are making exfoliation products with microbeads. These are little plastic beads that work as scrubbers. These beads don’t work any better than the good ol’ natural stuff, and they actually pollute the ocean. So stay natural and stay away from the microbeads.
Use coarse coffee grounds mixed with aloe vera gel, and vitamin E oil to make a smoothing scrub. This is touted by many beauty bloggers as an excellent remedy for minimizing the appearance of cellulite on the body.
There are many popular brands that feature crushed nuts or nut shells in their products for exfoliation. As long as the product uses a base that is free from parabens, or harsh additives, the shells of nuts work well for sloughing off dead skin. Exfoliants with nuts have become less popular in recent years due to the growing number of people who suffer from nut allergies.
Sweetin’ up Your Routine
Making sugar scrub at home is easy and inexpensive. Refined sugar, found in many pantries, has round granules, which makes it a gentle choice for people with sensitive skin. Unrefined, natural forms of sugar can also be used for a more moderate scrub.
Either type of sugar offers a gentle and healthy exfoliation. The sugar will melt as it’s used, and will make the skin smell sweet and clean. Sugar scrub can be used anywhere on the body, but it is not recommended for use on the face. Sugar scrub can be used several times a week without causing irritation.
Sea Salt Scrub
Scrubs with salt should be used for the rougher areas of your body. Salt granules are sharper than sugar, so they have more buffing ability than the granules of sugar.
Salt scrub works especially well for:
If you have sensitive skin, a salt scrub may not be a good option. Always use natural sea salt, not table salt. Sea salt offers purifying, anti-inflammatory benefits. Avoid using sea salt scrub on broken skin. Salt scrub should be used once a week to avoid excessive exfoliation.
There is no one time of year to exfoliate. It’s an important to keep exfoliation as part of your healthy skin routine throughout the year. For extra OOMPH!, apply your scrub while wearing exfoliation gloves. So get scrubbing and start glowing!
