Easy Coconut Oil Exfoliant Skin Care
If you are like most people, you have excess skin cells that you want to slough off on a regular basis. Doing this using all natural ingredients is simple and inexpensive. In addition, you will experience the benefits of knowing that you are not putting chemicals on your body where they are readily absorbed by your skin, which can create a multitude of health related issues.
For a facial skin exfoliator, you only need a couple of ingredients. First, you should find an expeller pressed virgin coconut oil. This appears solid and white when purchased. For premium skin care, select a product that is certified organic. This reduces the risk of having chemicals in your natural skin care products.
In addition, you will need an organic sugar to add to the oil. Regular sugar is ideal because powdered will not have the same exfoliating power and those that are less refined may have sharp edges on the grains.
Melt approximately one tablespoon of the oil. To that, add half a tablespoon of the sugar. Mix it thoroughly. Then, massage the mixture into your clean face and decolletage. Make certain to pull your hair out of the way first.
You should also treat the skin just under and behind your ears to ensure that it is clean and the pores free to breathe. After a couple of minutes of massage, rinse with water and pat your skin dry. Avoid the eye area when applying the mixture and do not rub your skin when drying.
If you do this five to seven times a week, you will notice smoother and softer skin. In addition, your skin will not produce excess oil the way that more harsh treatments will cause it to do. This is an inexpensive way to maintain your skin health.
