Sometimes what our skin needs is just exfoliation. But we are so busy with our lives we skip exfoliating. Even worse is when some people really do not think exfoliating is necessary. There are some others who believe exfoliating will damage your skin (What? seriously? Its true!). And some are just lazy. Whatever your reason is, DO NOT SKIP EXFOLIATION. The reason we exfoliate is to remove dead skin cells and keep those white heads and black heads at bay. Being said that, don’t exfoliate too vigorously (now that will surely and definitely damage your skin). Gently massaging with a good scrub will surely do the job.
So I am going to introduce you to one of my favorite scrubs, which is made with natural ingredients and has so many good qualities to enhance your skin’s health. A healthy skin means a beautiful you!
