Exfoliating your skin is crucial for a healthy, vibrant complexion. Since the top layer of the skin (the epidermis) is renewed every two weeks, millions of skin cells are left clinging to your body. Some fall off, but the majority pile on top of each other with nowhere to go … leading to clogged pores and oily, rough skin.
Your pores are responsible for cleaning your body and skin of toxins, so when skin cells accumulate and block those pores, the oil produced by your sebaceous gland has nowhere to go. This leads to acne, blackheads and whiteheads.
The only way to remove the dead skin quickly and easily is to exfoliate! Removing a layer of the skin’s surface allows the skin to breathe while revealing a newer, brighter layer. Lucky for you, it’s easy to naturally exfoliate your skin in 10 minutes or less. Here are three methods you can try right now.
- DIY sugar scrub
A homemade sugar scrub is an oldie but a goodie when it comes to exfoliating naturally. The organic sugar’s rough texture allows for a vigorous exfoliation, breaking the skin’s surface and revealing a layer of smooth, bright skin.
Different sugar scrubs can be created depending on the preference of scent and skin condition. The example being used is a Piña Colada Sugar Scrub. However, a scrub can be made simply with natural oil and organic brown sugar.
For a Piña Colada Sugar Scrub: Mix 1/2 cup organic brown sugar, 1/2 cup raw coconut oil and 1/3 cup organic pineapple juice. Massage gently onto clean skin. Rinse with cool water.
- Organic face mask
Creating your own mask gives you control over which ingredients to choose. A face mask can be used on your entire face or just as a spot treatment when something flares up.
