To combat rough and dry skin , typical of the post-holiday and early seasonal changes, or even just to revive the epidermis and give it a smoother and more compact appearance , there is nothing better than an invigorating exfoliation.
Exfoliation, also commonly known as scrub, involves gently rubbing the skin with products containing microgranules or microparticles that have the function of eliminating impurities and dead cells, leaving it soft and above all free to breathe. This process also has the function of stimulating the microcirculation, with a beneficial effect on cellulite and water retention , and of stimulating the renewal of the epidermis .
On the market there is a very wide choice of exfoliants for the body (an area often neglected to focus instead on the face), but why not resort to natural ingredients and have fun customizing your own cosmetic?
- Put the powdered zeolite in a bowl
- Add three or four tablespoons of sweet almond oil (if the skin is particularly dry and dull, it is possible to replace the almond oil with natural yogurt, which has a nourishing as well as moisturizing action)
- Combine 2 drops of sweet orange essential oil (for an energizing effect) or 2 drops of lavender essential oil (for a relaxing effect)
- Mix thoroughly
