When temperatures are lower and the air is drier, skin cell growth tends to slow, but our skin still continues to shed skin cells and those dead skin cells can build up on our skin’s surface.
If your skin feels dry and scaly and looks dull all over, try adding exfoliation into your skin care routine. Cleansing, moisturizing and exfoliating will make your skin a lot happier and look a lot fresher. Removing that top layer of dead skin cells is essential for your moisturizer to work at its best.
Natural ingredient exfoliators for the skin can be mixed together to create a simple treatment that will address dryness, redness, dullness and oiliness.
Here’s a recipe for a great combination of natural ingredients you might find in your own pantry.
