Homemade Face Scrub for Every Skin Type

Before you read further, stop and run the back of your hand across your cheek. Does it feel dry or a little scaly? If so, then it’s time to exfoliate. As you age, skin turnover slows, and dead skin cells pile up and stay attached for longer and longer periods of time.

Not only will it make your skin appear dull, but those dead skin cells will insulate the deeper layers from absorbing the creams and serums you’re using to prevent dry skin or aging. Things have a hard time penetrating the new skin below when old, dead skin cells are in the way.

Ideally, you should exfoliate about twice a week with a homemade face scrub. You can irritate skin by overdoing it, but a gentle scrub or peel will invigorate your skin and maximize the absorption of skincare ingredients while also gently stimulating cell renewal at the deepest layers. Plus, your skin will feel soft and smooth—even glowy.
