Making a homemade exfoliating scrub
There are a variety of scrubs, they are all good as long as those indicated for your type of skin. Making a homemade exfoliating scrub is ideal because it can meet the needs of your skin, in this post I teach you to do right for you.
The first step to make the best facial scrub is to determine the ingredients. Basically, it comes down to a choice between sugar and salt, with their varieties: regular sugar, brown sugar, iodized salt and sea salt.
For example, if you have sensitive skin, it is best brown sugar because it has a soft effect of exfoliation. Sea salt is abrasive, so it is used in the body, for thicker skin areas.
The second step is to select the medium in which to place the abrasive. For dry skin it is best olive oil which moisturizes without clogging pores and skin with acne needs safflower oil. The almond oil protects from the effects of UVB rays and can help balance the skin tone, moisturizing avocado oil, rich in antioxidants and extra virgin coconut oil prevents premature aging.
The third step is based on the choice of fruit or vegetable that best meet the needs of your skin. Note that the facial scrubs containing fresh fruits have a short shelf life and must be kept in the refrigerator.
- Kiwis and strawberries are suitable for when you want a brighter skin.
- The pineapple and pineapple have an enzyme that can dissolve dead skin cells, making them particularly suitable for acne-prone skin.
- The tomato to be rich in lycopene helps protect the skin from UV rays and cucumber helps to remove edema and also has a calming effect.
- Once you’ve chosen the ingredients to make the facial scrub for your skin type you have to proceed to produce it.
