At this time of the year, our skin care is becoming more and more important. Although we know it’s always a good time to pamper ourselves a little, it’s in the summer when we really get our act together.
One of the essential rituals for showing off clean skin is exfoliation. It removes dead cells from our skin and prepares it to absorb other beauty products such as moisturizers and make-up.
With the economy shaking, it’s very nice to talk about all this, but it seems that our beauty budget is not enough to buy all the products we would like. If you want to make homemade exfoliators and save yourself the money of a good cream, here are some options.
Homemade Exfoliants – 1
Sugar + olive oil
Olive oil has many uses in beauty, and one of them is this: Mix three tablespoons of oil with 1/4 cup of sugar and you will get a perfect paste. Apply the dough to the skin, leave to act and rinse with water.
Homemade Exfoliants – 2
Brown sugar + cream
If you prefer, you can mix a fluid cream you have at home (I recommend a cleansing cream) with brown sugar grains. As with the previous mix, simply spread, leave on and rinse.
Homemade Exfoliants – 3
Sand + sea water
Have you ever heard that sand is a very powerful natural exfoliant? Just mix sand and seawater, spread over your body and you’ll feel the difference.
These three easy to make and apply formulas will help make your skin more radiant for less money. Plus, they can get you out of trouble if you need a skin peel now! and don’t have time to buy a new cream.
