These 5 Ingredients Will Exfoliate Your Skin Naturally

If your complexion is dull and your skin is dry, it is probably time to exfoliate. The process of removing dead skin cells is a critical part of your skincare regimen. Not only does it promote cell turnover and uncover glowing skin. Exfoliating also allows the pores to be opened up, increases blood flow, and improves your skin's texture.

But where do you start? There are thousands of products on the market that claim to eliminate acne,  turn back the clock on aging, fade blemishes, reduce scarring, and even soften the look of dreaded fine lines and wrinkles. You could throw away hundreds of dollars trying out different products, or you could head straight to the kitchen. Avoid all of the chemicals that these products contain and try these 5 all-natural ingredients instead. You will save time and money and likely have better results!

Baking Soda

Baking soda is a gentle abrasive that can be used alone with water or as the base of a scrub. It helps with dry skin all over your body and leaves it soft and smooth.

Raw Sugar

Raw sugar contains naturally-occurring glycolic acid which dissolves old, dead skin. Exfoliating with raw sugar means that you may spend less time scrubbing!

Sea Salt

In addition to uncovering a fresh new layer of skin, sea salt contains over 60 trace minerals that support your skin cells' ability to hold in moisture.

Lemon Juice

Lemons contain alpha-hydroxy acids that gently peel away old skin cells. It also acts as a toner and has skin brightening properties to help fade blemishes and scarring. 

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a natural acid peel that brightens the skin, helps clear up acne, and fades blemishes and scarring, while reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. You may also use it as a toner, but dilute it a bit if your skin is sensitive.
