Why you should exfoliate
Ok so how often do you actually remove the dead skin from your body?
Your body should be exfoliated once a week to make sure you're totally keeping on top of all that dead skin! There are some seriously good benefits of exfoliating dont you know! Your skin sheds every 5-7 days. Did you know we shed 8lbs worth of dead skin EVERY YEAR! All that dust that collects in your house, on your TVs, shelves, units, picture frames..... that's pretty much mostly dead skin cells! So when you're dusting, you're pretty much getting rid of the old you! Weird thought right?!!
There's so many benefits to exfoliating here's what they are:
The benefits of exfoliating
✔️Gets rid of dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin, revealing dewy, glowing and healthy skin underneath
✔️From getting rid of those dead skin cells it actually makes you look more youthful and radiant
✔️Using exfoliator and rubbing it into your skin promotes blood flow to the surface of the skin which brings fresh nutrients to the skin. Perfect for cell renewal and collagen production in the skin (the thing that prevents you from getting wrinkles)
✔️It leaves your skin feeling silky smooth! Gorgeous! ❤️😍
Making sure you exfoliate ensures you don't end up with skin like this fella.... 🙊🙊🙊
Now I'm certain you've seen lots of exfoliator products out there! But I like to just make my own exfoliator at home! It's super cheap and easy to make! Here's what you'll need.
What you'll need
✔️Fine brown sugar
✔️Lemon and lime essential oil
What to do
Pop in two heaped tablespoons of coconut oil into a bowl, pop in microwave for 10 seconds until completely melted.
Add about 2-3 tablespoons of brown sugar into the coconut oil and mix together.
Then pop in around 2-3 drops of lemon or lime oil.
It doesn't have to be lemon and lime, it can be any essential oil you like. I just love lemon and lime combined as it's zesty and gives my senses and my skin a good boost!
Just take a small amount in your hand and exfoliate your body from top to toe. You will be left feeling silky smooth and refreshed.
