New year skin cleanse
Next Wednesday is the day for new year cleaning in Chinese tradition. It is important to have a clean and tidy home. You should also pay attention to skin cleanliness. Your skin may be exposed to many pollutants when you go out. The accumulation of stratum corneum can also make your skin dull, so this is the time to clean your skin. Let’s try homemade scrub with simple ingredients that are natural and affordable. But remember that scrubs should not be used too frequently, we recommend once every one to two weeks, otherwise it may cause damage to the skin. People with sensitive skin can do the test on the back of their hands to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction before using it on the face.
Recipe 1: fine brown sugar + coconut oil
Suitable skin type: dry skin
Sugar can relieve dryness and it is a natural skin moisturizer to gently exfoliate and moisten at the same time. It is recommended to select brown sugar as it contains more trace elements and antioxidants than regular sugar. You can add fine brown sugar in oil and mix well. Gently apply to your skin and gently massage in circular motion until the sugar particles completely dissolve, then wash with water or soap. This scrub can also be used on the lips.
Receipe 2: fine salt + yogurt
Suitable skin type: oily skin
Salt has anti-inflammatory, cleansing, and anti-bacterial effects, so it is more suitable for oily skin. Many people also use it to clean blackheads on the nose. Fine salt should be used to avoid scratching the skin. You can add fine salt in yogurt and mix well. Yogurt can relieve dryness. Gently apply to your skin and gently massage in circular motion until the salt particles completely dissolve, then wash with water.
Recipe 3: leftover rice of rice water + lemon juice + honey
Suitable skin type: all skin
For those that will have rice water powder, save the leftover rice of rice water. You can mix with some honey and lemon juice with the leftover rice and use it as a natural and whitening body scrub to gently remove dead skin from your face and body. Wash with water after rubbing. To avoid clogging the canals, remember to block the rice from the drain first so that you can discard them later.
