The three best natural scrubs for our skin

It is very normal that with the passage of time, all kinds of spots and imperfections appear on our face in the form of wrinkles or those annoying black spots.

For this reason, through the following lines we will tell you in great detail some of the natural exfoliants that you can prepare in a simple and natural way and that will help you to enjoy a much smoother and rejuvenated skin.

What are exfoliants and what are they for?

The exfoliation is simply fundamental when it comes to enjoying a healthy skin and in good condition, since it is useful at the time of eliminate the different dead cells that accumulate on its surface, preventing you from 'breathing' properly.

As we already explained on a previous occasion, in which we spoke to you about the psoriasis(a chronic disease of the skin more common than is usually thought), regularly the different skin cells tend to grow from the deeper layers, rising to the surface rather slowly. That is, multiply.

These cells are replaced constantly, so the dead cells present on the surface end up being eliminated. It is what is known as cell renewal: they grow, multiply, die and finally renew themselves.

In this sense, the exfoliation accelerates this natural phenomenon. How and in what way? Very simple: they help stimulate cell regeneration, as well as the blood microcirculation present on the surface. As a result of that, the skin becomes much softer and more flexible.

Banana and sugar for the whole body

One of the most consumed fruits also offers many benefits for our skin if we apply it directly. The best of all is that its preparation is very simple and most ingredients can be found at your home or at the nearest supermarket.

In the first place, you just have to take a good banana and crush it well until a very heterogeneous paste is left. Next, add three tablespoons of sugar that we will be mixing with this mass of fruit using a fork. And if you want, you can also use half a spoonful of vanilla extract to get a better result.

For this, we can make use of the following mixture made with mint and sugar that we can prepare in just a few minutes.

To finish, you have to apply all this mixture with great care throughout the labial surface for at least a minute to finally rinse the area a little with water. You can repeat this process a couple of times a day without any problem. You will see how after a few weeks your lips have their original color and softness again.
