The Importance of Exfoliating

Exfoliating is essential to achieve a wonderfully clean complexion.

Benefits
1. It cleanses the outer layers of the skin, eliminating dirt and dead skin cells
2. Helps blood circulation
3. Stimulates collagen production

Exfoliators according to your skin type

1. Normal Skin (Not too dry, not too oily)
Mix 2 tablespoons of hot water and 1 tablespoon of oat bran ( salvado de avena en español)
Let the mixture sit for a couple of minutes
Apply on face making circular motions
Rinse with warm water
Apply a moisturizer of your choice

2. Dry Skin
Mix 1 cup of natural yoghurt wth 2 tablespoons of wheat bran ( salvado de trigo en español)
Apply on face in a circular motion
Remove with warm water
Apply a moisturizer of your choice

3. Oily Skin
Mix together 1/3 Cup Ground Oatmeal , 1/3 Cup of Almond Meal (or the powder of 20 ground almonds), 2 Teaspoons of Sea Sal and 1 tablespoon of an astringent of your choice.
When mixing the ingredients, make sure your outcome is a paste, not a liquid scrub.
Apply to your face in a circular motion
Let it sit for a couple of minutes
Remove with warm water
Apply a light moisturizer of your choice
