Exfoliation is an important step in skincare.
If you are after a glow, weekly exfoliation is vital. Making a facial or body scrub at home is a great way to utilize various items in your kitchen to make weekly exfoliation affordable. So many of your kitchen items could make for the perfect ingredients for a scrub that are proven to take away dead skin and reveal a new layer of baby-smooth, glowing skin. Making your own scrubs also ensures that you know exactly what goes onto your skin.
Here are 3 essential, simple DIY facial scrubs you must try at home:
1.The Sugar Scrub
The basis for the simple sugar scrub is combining an oil and sugar. The choice of oil and sugar makes all the difference, creating different varieties of the common basic sugar scrub. The ultimate indulgent sugar scrub is created by combining brown sugar, coconut oil and a few drops of lavender oil. Taking a warm shower to open up your pores, and proceeding to scrub away is a great way to relax. The addition of lavender oil ensures maximum relaxation; making for the perfect nighttime routine.
2.The Coffee Scrub
The elemental ingredients of this scrub include coffee grounds, and any oil of your choice. To make the scrub even more substantive, include honey and the luscious scent of vanilla extract. Honey is a humectant that restores moisture to dull, dry skin ensuring that you enjoy moisturized, glowing skin. Because of the caffeine in this scrub, it is known to reinvegorate and awakens the senses, perfect for the morning shower.
3.The Oats Scrub
Oats are full of fibre, a source of slow-releasing energy when eaten. However, when used as the key ingredient of a scrub, oats provide the most gentle exfoliation for sensitive skin. If you suffer from acne, eczema, or even hyperpigmentation oats should be a fundamental part of your skincare. Combined with plain yoghurt, an oats scrub can do wonders for skin that is dull, or inflammed. If you have acne or skin hyperpigmentation, adding some tumeric might just do the trick in bringing back luster to your skin.
