Top 2 Homemade Body Scrubs to Exfoliate Your Skin

Last Updated:  | By: Health & Beauty

Every minute of the day, we lose about 30-40k dead skin cells from the surface of our skin; That’s about 4 kgms of dead skin cells per year. It is a continuous process, however in some cases, the oil secreted by our skin hardens and prevents dead cells from falling off. This results in a deposition of dead cells on our skins, which in turn leads to the formation of black heads, white heads and acne. It can also lead to dehydration and poor oxidation which can make the skin tone uneven, rough and blemished.
Through periodic exfoliation, one can remove dead skin cells deposits and can get a soft, smooth & polished skin.

Tips to remember-
Always clean your skin with water and pat dry, before exfoliating. Or, take a hot shower/steam bath. This will clean and open the pores of your skin.
Also make sure to not exfoliate more than 2-3 times a month.

Now, here are the remedies to make natural body scrubs at home.

Remedy 1

1 cup sugar
3 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp pineapple juice
1 tbsp honey

Mix the ingredients in a bowl to form a thick scrub. Gently scrub all the dry areas of your body. Wash off with lukewarm water.

Remedy 2

1 cup sea salt
Cinnamon powder
4 tbsp almond/olive oil

Take a bowl and put a cup of sea salt in it. Add 4 tbsp almond/olive oil, and a pinch of cinnamon to it. Mix well, and rub it gently on all the parts of the body that need exfoliation.

P.S. Do not apply this scrub on any open wounds or scratches, as it contains sea salt.
