Exfoliating once or twice a week is a necessity in every skin care routine however certian exfoliation products can be both too harsh and too expensive.
Exfoliation is a method to remove the dead skin cells on the outer surface of your skin, it is therefore necessary to exfoliate at least twice a week as it will remove the dead skin cells therefore revealing healthy skin.
However certain exfoliation products can be extremely harmful to the skin containing harsh chemicals and substances which can cause extreme redness and dryness. Not only this but certain exfoliation products can be extremely expensive and may not give you the results you want.
Here is a cheaper and natural alternative which will not only remove your dead skin cells but will also moisturize your skin effectively and you can find all these products in your kitchen cupboard:
- Honey: 2 tablespoons
- Sugar: 2 teaspoons
- Olive oil: 2 tablespoons
Mix these three products in a small air tight container, and because it contains honey and sugar this will preserve the scrub therefore lasting a relatively long time. Apply and gently massage this over the face, the sugar will scrub and remove the dead skin cells and the honey and oil will moisturize the skin therefore allowing the skin to remain hydrated and moisturized.
However even though this a natural scrub it is still important to only exfoliate once or at the most twice a week because over exfoliating can also cause extreme redness and dryness, therefore only exfoliate once or twice a week.
