There are so many incredible benefits of exfoliating. Here are my favorites:
GETS RID OF DEAD SKIN
Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells that clog your pores and make your skin look dry and flaky. With a gentle scrub, you reveal a new and dewy skin hidden underneath.
**If you have dry skin and you feel like the moisturizer you apply just sits on top of your skin, you're not exfoliating enough. Having a fresh layer of skin will help it absorb products much better and deeper, further combating dryness and irritation.
STIMULATES CELLULAR REGENERATION
Exfoliating encourages new cell renewal which leads to brighter, firmer, smoother skin. It also reduces skin discoloration, evens out your skin tone and improves circulation, giving you that natural glow.
Dry brushing along with exfoliating stimulates your lymphatic system, which helps remove toxins and trapped fat cells (cellulite) from your body.
coffee body scrub
This scrub tones your body like nobody's business and leaves your skin incredibly soft and oh-so-smooth. Take your leftover coffee grounds and make this incredible edible exfoliating scrub.
WHY IT'S SO INCREDIBLE:
- Coffee - is anti-inflammatory. Caffeine not only tightens and firms your skin, but improves skin circulation.
- Coconut Oil - my favorite natural beauty ingredient that helps lock in moisture - it has tons of nourishing vitamins and minerals.
- Coconut Palm Sugar - helps exfoliate with the coffee grounds (note: if you need a deeper exfoliation, organic cane sugar is coarser in texture and might work better).
- Cinnamon - is not only anti-inflammatory, it brings blood and nutrients to surface of your skin, which helps give you that glow. If you have sensitive skin, leave this out.
