Exfoliation is an important part of skincare regime. With time, the skin develops a layer of dead skin with accumulated dirt and oil, which in turn clogs the pores. It also serves as a breeding ground for bacteria that leads to skin problems like blackheads and acne. Here we have easy yet effective body scrubs.
- Besan and salt scrub
Besan buffs and exfoliates the skin by helping scrub off dead cells, so many traditional Indian body packs contain this ingredient. The result of using this is tight and clean skin, which feels purified and cleansed. Salt helps exfoliate the skin further and the minerals it contains also improve skin health.
- Vitamin C scrub
Sea salt helps soothe pain and tomatoes are excellent at fighting skin damage. In addition to that, vitamin-C rich orange and lime fight pigmentation and dullness. So, this scrub is ideal for replenishing the skin.
- Coffee and coconut scrub
Caffeine stimulates blood circulation, leading to healthy and tight skin. Sugar crystals are great for scrubbing off flaky skin and bumpy ingrown hairs. Coconut oil is amazing for moisturizing the skin. Together, these ingredients leave the skin feeling nourished, silky, and smooth.
- Rose and oats scrub
Rose’s antioxidant properties make it amazing for giving skin a glow and fighting pigmentation. Oats removes tan and honey, known for calming irritated skin, is the ideal medium for this gentle scrub.
- Honey, lemon and sugar scrub
Honey seals moisture and vitamin C rich and strong-smelling lemon has an astringent action that kills germs. When combined, these ingredients brighten skin, giving ashy knees and elbows full of dead skin a clean glow.
