Diy Lavender Sugar Scrub
Exfoliation removes the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. Did you noticed that clout of white particles fly into the area when you peel of your jeans? Does your skin looks dull? Both are signs that you need more exfoliation in your skin care routine.
Exfoliation leaves your skin smoother and make it easier for other hydrating products to penetrate.
Why Is Exfoliating Important?
Our body is constantly generating new skin cells and sends them to the surface. As the cells rise to the surface (the epidermis), they gradually diet. The skin cells from the epidermis are essential because they protect our skin, but they are constantly sloughing off to make way for younger cells.
As we age, cells start to pile up on unevenly on our skin, giving it a dull and dry appearance. Exfoliation is important because it removes the dried cells, revealing the younger cells bellow.
Mechanical exfoliate rubs off the dried skin cells and might include sugar or coffee grounds. On the face only use small and gentle abrasives like jojoba bends, and on your body you can our Lavender Scrub.
What You Should Know About Exfoliation:
- Be extra careful with the delicate skin of you face and only use gentle products
- Don’t over exfoliate your face
- Don’t over exfoliate in the summer or in sunny climates. Your skin can easily be damaged by the sun
- Don’t use body scrubs on your face. It can be too rough.
- You can use a body scrub once a week with no problem
- Body brushing every morning is a gentle way to wake up and exfoliate in the same time
