As mentioned in the part one, to help one’s skin, one needs to be aware of cleansing especially concerning exfoliation. There are a number of advertised products on the market. Unfortunately, many of them are quite expensive. If one should prefer to use store-bought brands, rather than make one’s own, then use only as directly and no more than needed.
Remember that body exfoliation helps to prevent ingrown hairs caused by shaving and waxing, helps to ease dry skin and helps the skin on one’s body to absorb moisturizers. One should use a body scrub once a week.
Here are two more body scrubs one can make from home:
Sugar Scrub: Mix ½ cup sugar with ½ cup vegetable oil. Scoop up the mixture with one’s fingers and rub all over one’s arms, legs, and torso. The longer one rubs, the smoother one’s skin will feel. Shower off, and follow up with a shower wash. This mixture is gentle enough to use on the face, as well as on the body.
Cornmeal Scrub for Very Dry, Rough Skin: Mix ½ cup cornmeal with 1 egg yolk, ½ lemon, and ¼ cup vegetable oil. Rub all over the arms, legs, and torso. Rinse in the shower and follow up with a shower wash. One’s skin will feel a lot smoother and one will feel invigorated. The lemon juice has citric acid, which will help loosen extra dry skin. Apply a heavy moisturizer to the skin while still damp.
