We’ve previously written about how to prevent the formation of dead skin cells, but there are quite a lot more tips that you must know. In this article, we’ll reveal a few simple tricks on how to remove dead skin cells from the face.
Exfoliating is extremely important, but you also want to do it without injuring your skin. In order to naturally cleanse the skin, most women use a homemade mask that is part of their beauty regimen, as chemical treatments are known to be toxic for the skin. Homemade methods are very naturals and effective in eliminating dead skin cells, so here are a few tips on how to remove dead skin cells from the face.
Oats And Sugar Scrub
A scrub consisting of oats and sugar is one of the most effective tools when it comes to removing dead skin cells from the body and face. As oats has a granular texture, you need to soak them in water for around 10 minutes before mixing it with sugar and some honey. Apply it directly to the surface of your skin, but make sure you avoid the skin area surrounding the eyes. Make sure you don’t rub too harsh on the skin, as it can lead to rashes and irritation.
Anti-Aging Coffee Scrub
Coffee is rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals, which means it makes an ideal agent to remove dead skin cells, but it can also prevent sagging and wrinkles. To prepare the facial scrub, take some ground, coarse coffee beans and add a little olive oil and maybe some raw sugar. Rub it gently on your face and use warm water to rinse it off. After you’re done, pat yourself dry.
Baking Soda Scrub
When trying to get rid of dead skin cells from the face, baking soda can be a trusted ally, as it’s very easy to use. Commonly used in desserts, this natural ingredient comes in handy in the removal of dead skin cells. In fact, it’s actually one of the best and easiest ways to eliminate dead skincells.
To make a scrub using this ingredient, you have to mix half a teaspoon of baking soda with a little attar. Then, you can rub the mixture onto your face, or even feet, knees or elbows. However, if your skin is sensitive or dry, it’s best to avoid a baking soda-based scrub.
Olive oil can also be used in an effective manner to remove dead skin cells from the face. The Egyptians, Greeks and Romans have all used this natural oil for cosmetic and medicinal purposes.
How do you use it for this purpose? Just apply a thin layer onto your skin when it’s dry and then rub it thoroughly so that the moisturizing effect kicks in. To protect your skin even further, rub your regular moisturizer on top of the olive oil.
Rice-Curd-Rose Oil Scrub
This scrub works gently and softly on the skin, but it also moisturizes and helps eliminate dead skin cells. It works perfectly for dry and sensitive skin, fights toxic free radicals, but can also remove tan signs. The scrub is a creamy one, so to make it less coarse, ground rice and add it to curd or dahi and splash 2 drops of rose oil on top of the mix. Use the mixture to apply directly to the face. Then, allow your skin to dry before rinsing it off with water.
Lip Balm, Vaseline, or Chap Stick for Chapped Lips
The face is full of dead skin cells, but you have to take care of the lips as well. Naturally delicate and relatively flaky, the skin on the lips is exceptionally vulnerable when it is dried out. To improve the state of your dry, dead lips, you should use a gel-based lip balm or chap stick and apply it onto the lips every few hours to moisturize and protect them. When the lips are severely dried-out, it’s best to use a heavier solution, one that’s denser, such as Vaseline. This will offer fast and long-term relief. Lip balms do not contain ground glass and are not physically addictive, even though some experts believe it may create a psychological dependency due to the soothing effects it possesses.
