Do you remember the apricot drugstore scrub of your youth? You probably picked it up after a friend recommended it to you. It may have been your first real skin care purchase. You would scrub away at your face until your skin was raw and baby smooth, albeit bright red afterwards. Exfoliation has come a long way since those days. However, it’s still one of the most important steps in a proper skin care regimen. Exfoliation sloughs away dead skin and removes any surface debris that could be clogging your pores. It leaves skin brighter, smoother, and more even toned.
There are so many different ways to exfoliate. How do you know which methods and products are worth using? There are scrubs, cleansers, brushes, serums, creams, overnight treatments, and perhaps our favorite of all, masks. Exfoliating masks are a great way to eradicate dead skin build up and brighten up a dull complexion. There are so many options lining shelves today, though, that it’s hard to know which ones to try. Good news, you don’t have to go out and buy an arsenal of products. It’s easy to make your own exfoliating masks with some simple ingredients you can find in your kitchen. SiO Beauty has got you covered with 8 recipes for exfoliating masks you can make at home! Say hello to soft, smooth skin in no time.
