Quick & Easy Natural Scrubs….
Natural homemade scrubs are great at moisturizing, cleansing and removing dead skin cells. When you are younger and your body is still new, your skin cells turnover every seven days and new cells are born and the dead cells shed easily, normally during a bath and the cycle continues. However as you get older and your skin begins to age the process slows down and more skin layers build up on your face and body and too many of these layers become stubborn, firm and basically cement together and what used to be enough is no longer enough to set the dead skin cells free. So with out regular exfoliating the new and healthy cells become trapped underneath the olds ones with all the dirt and oil. This can leave you with acne, dullness and an uneven skin tone. However regular exfoliation can improve your skins tone, clarity and leave you with clearer pores and a glowing complexion. Remember daily scrubs are a bad idea and masks and peels work better after the skin has been exfoliated.
