Many of us follow the skin care routine having only cleansing and moisturizing. These two are important steps but along with it exfoliating and toning is also important. Lets talk about exfoliating..

Exfoliation is nothing but removing the old dead skin cells from the outermost skin surface. This is very essential step as the dead skin cells may clog the pores and may form blackheads or pimples. Exfoliation also gives room for the cell regeneration.

Process of exfoliation involves scrubbing the skin with an abrasive exfoliant such as almond shell, sugar, rice flour, oatmeal etc.

Here I am using oatmeal in making scrub. Oatmeal contains vitamin A, B-6, Calcium, Magnesium, iron and potassium with these essential nutrients oatmeal is not only good for our health but its great for our skin too. Grounded oats or oatmeal has micro particles which scrub away the dead cells from the skin and helpful in removing black heads and whiteheads too. Different oatmeal scrubs can be formed for different skin types using simple natural but effective ingredients.

Nourishing and rejuvenating body scrub

Most of us just take care of the face. But ever wondered just taking daily bath isn’t enough for your body skin.Just using a gentle soap and cleansing body is not enough!

Problem like acne on back, darkened elbows and knees, rough skin are the signals that body needs extra care.

The scrub is not only required just for face but also for body!

Bathing just removes the dirt from skin, but not removes the dead skin layer,  sometimes the oil from skin is not removed properly and then leads to acne.

Acne on the back is good example.

Scrubbing also increases the blood circulation, which is important for healthy skin and also gives room for new cells to emerge.
