Unless you're exfoliating regularly, you might begin to notice that your skin might be losing some of its luster. While radiance can be achieved artificially, there's no denying when your skin needs an extra helping hand to stay polished and flawless. Even if you're consistently cleansing, moisturizing and protecting yourself from the sun, you might not be giving your complexion the thing it truly needs - a good scrub.
Make your own exfoliator
If you're a fan of DIY beauty products, there are a few great exfoliators you can whip up in the comfort of your own kitchen. She Knows suggested using one tablespoon of coffee and one tablespoon of water or olive oil. Rub the mixture into your skin and rinse it away to unclog your pores and slough off dead skin cells. Oatmeal is another simple at-home recipe. Simply mix a tablespoon of ground oatmeal, a quarter teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of water. Rub it into your skin and then rinse it off with warm water.
Buy a nutrient rich option
If you'd rather spend a little money for amazing results, try the Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator / 15ml. Similar to the above options, rub it into your complexion with slow, even circles, and then rinse it away. Follow it up with your favorite moisturizer and get ready to enjoy luminous, clear skin.
