How to Naturally Exfoliate Your Skin

How to Naturally Exfoliate Your Skin

Exfoliation is an essential part of skin care because dead skin cells and pathogens need to be removed from the skin in order to promote the most optimal natural beauty possible. This article will discuss natural ways you can incorporate exfoliation into your holistic skincare regimen.

Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is one way you can easily exfoliate. Dry brushing is exactly what it sounds like; it is where you take a dry brush with natural bristles and rub it across your skin to stimulate blood flow, break up lymphatic build up and also exfoliate the skin.  

It is recommended that you dry brush daily before you shower.  Doing this every day will help you prevent lymphatic build up and can even promote elasticity and a youthful look for your skin! 

For added skincare benefits, applying a body butter such as shea or cocoa butter after you dry brush can help you have softer skin!   

Body Scrubs

Using holistic body scrubs with healing ingredients that naturally eliminate dead skin cells and dry patches can be of great benefit to your beauty care routine. Body scrubs can help promote collagen production within your skin and can create a more youthful appearance.  For optimal use, take a hot shower to let your skin become supple before using a body scrub, then gently exfoliate your skin with a loofa or wash cloth. Rinse with cool water and apply a natural lotion afterwards for best results.

Epsom Salt

Epsom salt is a common base in holistic comfort products such as bath bombs and is used to naturally alleviate muscle soreness when added to warm bath soaks. It can also be used as a natural exfoliating agent due to its gently coarse texture. Its composition of healing ingredients such as magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen make it a prime choice for holistic skin care.
