Today, I’ll be talking about skincare; exfoliation to be specific.
As my friend once said: “Skincare is the sine qua non of makeup”. She couldn’t have been more correct. To ensure your makeup goes on flawlessly, the base(your skin) has to be flawless.
Plus, it wouldn’t hurt to flaunt your skin without makeup once in a while..😉
One of the most important steps in achieving gorgeous skin is EXFOLIATION.
WHY SHOULD YOU EXFOLIATE?
The cells of your skin undergo a constant cycle of death and renewal. The dead cells build up on the skin surface, prolonging the time for the new cells to reach the surface, causing rough and uneven skin, hyperpigmentation and large pores.
In other words, exfoliation is important to:
-help skincare products penetrate better
-3 tablespoons honey
-4 tablespoons sugar
-2 tablespoons oatmeal
-1 tablespoon coffee
-1 cup of coconut oil (or any oil of your choice) [optional]
P.S: NO WATER (to avoid dissolving the ingredients)
-Add the sugar, oatmeal, honey and coffee into a bowl.
-Stir until it forms a paste.
-Apply the oil to the skin in a circular motion.
-Wait for 10-15 minutes.
-Using your hand/exfoliating glove, apply the paste to your skin rubbing in circular motions upwards.
-Wait for 30-45 minutes.
-Rinse the paste off your body.
-Have your bath as you would normally do.
-Repeat once or twice a week.
Your skin feels softer and smoother and you feel generally refreshed. With consistency, your skin transforms from dull, slaty to glowy, beautiful skin.
