If you think that the CTM (Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturising) routine is enough to get flawless skin, then you may be wrong. Simple because, exfoliating is also an equally important skincare tip, especially to get rid of dead skin. Not eliminating them in time can lead to hair loss, breakouts, blackheads, acne, and more skin issues. So exfoliating your face of old cells is the key to letting the lively ones underneath come to surface and shine, giving you healthier skin overall. Read on to know about the natural ways to do this in the comfort of your home.
1. Steam Therapy
Allow your pores to open up with the help of steam. This process also softens out oil, dirt, and dead skin cells from deep within thus making it easier for a scrub to remove dead skin cells naturally. Therefore, make it a practice to steam your face for at least 20 to 30 minutes before applying a scrub. This is the best way to exfoliate your skin effectively.
2. A dash of lime
Lemon works wonders on the dry areas of your skin and body. In a bowl containing lemon juice, mix 2 teaspoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Moisten your skin with water first and then massage the mixture thoroughly in a circular motion. Finally, rinse well and apply some good moisturizer. Besides being a fabulous dead skin treatment, this remedy will make your skin soft and radiant.
