Natural scrubs: Beauty salon in your home

Scrubs are invariably present in the rich arsenal of miraculous beauty products. To achieve visible results with their help, you do not have to go broke on expensive cosmetics. To do this, it is enough to know how to make a face scrub at home.

Instructions for use

The most important thing is not to overdo it with cosmetic procedures. For normal to oily skin, 1-2 applications of the scrub per week are enough. For dry skin, it is recommended to use it no more than once every ten days. For sensitive or problem skin, the choice of such products and the frequency of use should be discussed with a dermatologist.

Before using exfoliating and cleansing facial scrubs, it is important to properly prepare your skin. To do this, wash it with warm water or herbal decoction. To maximize the pores of the skin, you can steam it slightly. Take a terrycloth towel, soak it in mildly hot water and apply it to your face for a few seconds.

Since recipes for homemade face scrubs include abrasive particles, rub them in with gentle massaging movements, avoiding the area around the eyes and lips, because the skin is especially delicate here. But in the area of ​​the forehead, cheeks, tip of the nose and chin, the movements should be intense, since the largest number of dead cells is concentrated here. After a light massage, the scrub is left on the face for 5-10 minutes, then washed off with water or herbal infusion and dried with a towel. For an extra effect, you can wipe your face with lotion or a piece of ice. And only then you need to apply the cream.

Then dilute the required amount of scrub with warm water to a thick consistency, apply it to the skin of the face and leave it for a few minutes.
