If you want to have smooth skin every day, half a cup of sugar will help exfoliate your face. Just mix with a little honey and rub it on your face from neck to forehead, working slowly in a circular motion. Let sit for ten minutes and then rinse.
For those with acne problems, oatmeal is always an excellent home remedy. Pound or chop in a food processor to create smaller particles and mix with three tablespoons of natural yogurt. Put it on your face and relax for 15 minutes. Remove with water. This scrub is also hydrating for the skin.
Using ground wheat, you can remove blackheads from your skin. Mix it with a little milk and cover your face, focusing on your nose and forehead. Rub in small circles, then wait 20 minutes before rinsing. Finish with a hydrating cream.
To exfoliate your body, add a handful of sea salt to your body wash and use as you normally would. When you rub the mixture into your skin you’ll be eliminating the residue that builds up on your skin every day.
Using sand is the easiest way to give yourself a free and super-effective pedicure. The next time you go to the beach remember to take an empty container to save a little to use at home. After bathing, rub your feet sand and you’ll see how you can easily eliminate dead cells and leave your skin smooth. It is also effective on elbows.
Remember that if your skin is sensitive you shouldn’t rub too hard. End your treatment with a moisturizing cream. If you’d like read more tips click here.
