How to scrub your skin
Now that you know how to make an effective natural homemade sugar body scrub, you just have to know how to exfoliate your body correctly. And is that exfoliation is a great and necessary procedure, perfect for all skin types, as long as it is done with the right products and in the right way.
If you want to start exfoliating your body but don’t know how to do it, pay attention to these tips to get the most out of this procedure.
To use a homemade body scrub for the body, it is better that the grain is coarse, unlike for the face, since the skin is more delicate. Any of the above could serve you, as they are all made with coarse grain products.
Before exfoliating the body, it is recommended that you take a good bath to do it with wet skin, as this will better distribute the natural exfoliant so as not to hurt yourself.
For best results, pour some of the exfoliating lotion of your choice on your hand and apply it to the area with gentle, upward circular motions . Thus, you will eliminate dead cells and stimulate circulation.
You don’t need to apply a lot of pressure, the homemade body scrub by itself will do its job, you don’t need to scrub hard. After a minute of massage, wash off with plenty of warm or cold water and apply a generous amount of moisturizing body cream to dry skin.
Avoid exfoliating the most delicate areas of your body, such as the breasts or the décolleté area. For these areas it is better to apply the same exfoliator that you use for the face, as its grain is much more delicate and will not damage your skin.
Do not exfoliate your dermis more than once a week because, although the result is pleasant, an excessive exfoliation could irritate your skin and cause damage . In addition, if you have undergone a peel, suffer from some type of dermatitis or have suffered sunburn, it is not advisable to exfoliate the skin until it improves.
Don’t forget to use your regular moisturizer after using a homemade body scrub. The dermis will absorb it faster and will benefit better from its nutrients. Plus, you don’t need to let the natural scrub work in, so remove it when you’re done.
If you want to enjoy a deeper exfoliation, you can use a special glove to scrub the skin. The one we recommend is the one made of natural bamboo charcoal fiber that does not contain chemical, hypoallergenic, or toxic substances. This tool leaves the skin much cleaner and smoother, as if you had undergone a professional body peel.
I recommend picking up a small amount of this product with a spoon instead of your hands to avoid bacteria spreading. Do not use it if the scrub has become suspicious or smells something strange.
My skin is incredibly smooth, moisturized and smells amazing after the exfoliation treatment with this product and I’m sure I will use it in colder months when I need to lift my spirits with memories of the sun and warmth.I hope this homemade recipe will be useful to you too!
