How many ways to look young?

There are primarily three types of scrubbing methods.

  1. The mechanic way: It means doing the scrubbing with your hand with a scrubber which usually consists of almond shells, salt or sugar and also microfiber cloth.
  2. The mad chemist way: It means using scrubs containing chemicals like some acids and is applied to the skin by a professional in large or less amounts depending on the skin condition.
  3. The hair plucker way: Yes. The naughty plucker can also help in exfoliating the skin. Take Waxing. Done every two months or so can anti-age your skin.

Ok. Make me hard shelled to mistakes!

Well, skin becomes soft and slippery with scrubs though. Anyway, adopt these policies while buying one:

  1. Balanced amount of skin sloughing and moisturizing elements
  2. Intermediately strong fragrance but awakening
  3. The oiler it is, more glow it will induce.
  4. Must contain tons of natural oils
  5. Must be paraben and DMDM free.

Ok. So tell me the formula!

Different chemicals induce different properties to the scrub.

  1. Bergamot makes your skin a slippery rink!

  1. Cocoa butter smells extremely good.

  1. Sea salt shores away the dry skin.

  1. Eucalyptus makes the skin supple and gives it an insanely pleasant smell.

The power is already in the house

Well, it’s surprising to know that the holy grail is already in your kitchen. Just recognize them and use!

  1. Salt: Relax! Relax! The hard working muscles are thrown into relaxation by salt.
  2. Sugar: Its very safe believe me! Users have reported it to be quite soft on the skin. Both white and brown.
  3. Coffee: Not as a drink this time! Coffee constricts the blood vessels. Simple.
  4. Oatmeal: Well, it is the water supplier while helping in evacuating the irritation and itches.

Sunflower oil, Grapeseed oil and Sweet almond oil acts the best, mild, fragrant carrier oils.

Here's the secret recipe:

Well, hundreds of scrubs can be made right at home. One of them is the lucky one to be present here:

Oatmeal Scrub

  1. A cup of oatmeal.
  2. 8 drops each of rosewood, tangerine, and lavender which is the essential oil. Also include 4 drops of chamomile oil.
  3. Some dried lavender petals. What the aroma!

So, let's get cracking!

Form a mix by stirring the constituents by adding essential oils slowly drop by drop. Store them. Dont worry, use it before a year. Put some water, paste is formed and it is ready to be applied on your skin.

Let's celebrate the good!

Advantages are aplenty.

  1. Detoxifications: All dirt and toxic materials on your skin which makes it oily is washed out completely. Dead cells are removed
  2. Relaxation: A massage with a scrub is one of the best things in the world. You will love to be in a young, joyful skin.
  3. One uncommon advantage is that scrubbing helps in anti-tanning. Removal of dead cells first and then applying the tanning cream gives the best results.

There must be the other side of the coin!

Obviously, there is. But they can be overcome easily.

  1. Initially scrubs may cause irritation and redness
  2. Price! Not a good weight on the wallet they are.
  3. Some have environmental impacts. Microbeads are released into the water bodies which basically disturb the fishes and the sharks.

Wait. How to best scrub?

  1. Put some oil first on the skin.
  2. From the feet bring up the brush in a circular motion after the scrub is being applied.
  3. Rinse using warm water and apply some body wash.
  4. Dry the skin. And moisturize it ultimately by a moisturizer.

Definitely, scrubbing is a must for giving a new lease of life to your skin. But consult a doctor first to make sure of any allergies. Then choose the right scrub matching its properties and start playing with it right away!
