If there is something quarantine has taught us was to take really good care of our body at home. Exfoliating is such a great way to relax both our muscles and to make the skin on our body get that shine back on.
If you tend to see your skin looks dull and doesn’t skin as it’s supposed to, it could be because as we grow old there’s a lack of collagen production in our skin which will make our body not look as young as it used to be. Hence why skincare and body scrubs are so important to add to our weekly routine.
There are certain things that you should consider first. Whether it is with ingredients found in our home or exfoliating products bought in drugstores, exfoliation tends to be very aggressive on our skin sometimes, so you shouldn’t do it every day. Plus, it is very important to moisturize after too!
Brown Sugar Scrub
Getting brown sugar to create this homemade scrub will be cheap and will do wonders for your skin. Plus, brown sugar is ideal for those that have sensitive skin as it isn’t as abrasive as sea salt is. It will brush off all those dead cells and will let your skin breathe and regenerate.
- Sea Salt Scrub
Be careful with this one as this ingredient tends to be very rough and could harm your skin if you don’t apply it correctly. Sea salt is filled with minerals that will help you get that healthy look on your skin, and it also has antibacterial properties which make it great too!
- Coffee Scrub
Even though it hasn’t been confirmed whether it is true or not, many scientists have studied caffeine’s properties to help reduce cellulitis appearances on our skin. We do know that their small granules are slightly gentler than other ingredients such as sea salt too, so it could be used on sensitive skin as well.
- Honey + Sugar Scrub
Combining these ingredients is basically creating the ultimate homemade body scrub. While honey has antibacterial and antioxidant properties, sugar will help you clean your body and drag all that dull skin out of your body.
- Oatmeal Scrub
If you have uncooked oatmeal in your home, this one is easy to prepare, and it is gentle to your skin as well. Grinding oatmeal and mixing it with some honey and sugar twice a week could do wonders to the texture of your skin as it is both exfoliates and soothes at the same time.
After exfoliating your skin, the moisturizing part is just as important. Prepare your hydration cream to apply right after you clean your scrub. It will penetrate deeper on your skin and will leave a radiant glow on your body!
