Regular skin exfoliation is necessary to keep your pores from clogging and to get rid of dull and dry top skin layer to reveal fresh new skin. Exfoliating does not mean using harsh exfoliants and scrubs, you can also make your own gentle skin exfoliators. Since your facial skin is thinner than the rest of your body, all you need is natural gentle exfoliating ingredients to keep your facial skin radiant, soft and clear. Below is one such recipe-
Coconut flour- Is a gentle exfoliator that helps buff away dead skin cells and also brighten skin tone.
Licorice powder- Works as an amazing skin brightener and exfoliator!
Orange peel powder- Is really gentle on the skin, brightens skin tone, cleanses and gently buffs away dead skin cells.
