Benefits of exfoliating with brown sugar Himalayan sea salt face and body scrub

Exfoliating with a brown sugar Himalayan sea salt face scrub has numerous benefits for your skin.

Here are some reasons to consider including this in your skincare routine:

Exfoliation with brown sugar sand sea salt unclogs your pores

Exfoliating your face with brown sugar and Himalayan salt scrub helps unclog your pores, removes dead skin, and improves blood circulation.

Which also reduces breakouts and improves the texture of your skin.

Brown sugar is a gentler natural skin exfoliant.

Some exfoliants are too abrasive and can irritate the skin when you exfoliate.

But brown sugar is one of the less abrasive natural scrubs, next to baking soda.

And combined with Himalayan sea salt, it exfoliates dead skin, while the coconut and essential oils moisturize and soothe your skin.

Exfoliation reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Exfoliating helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face.

And when dead skin cells are removed, cell turnover is stimulated.

Which helps to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This scrub can also help to boost skin elasticity, making it appear younger.

Made with natural ingredients that are safe for your skin

One of the best things about this brown sugar salt scrub is that it is made with all-natural ingredients in your kitchen.

Brown sugar is a gentle exfoliator for sloughing off dead skin.

And Himalayan sea salt is another excellent natural exfoliant with minerals beneficial to your skin.

This scrub contains coconut oil, which helps to hydrate and nourish your skin.

Lastly, this salt sugar scrub contains essential oils that relax, boost mood, and soothe skin inflammation.

Things to look out for when using this scrub

Exfoliate when skin is damp

Making sure your body is damp when scrubbing helps the scrub spread easily.

When your skin is too wet, the scrub will melt away and have less friction for exfoliation.

Your shower floor will get slippery.

Also, coconut oil will make your bath or shower floor oily and slippery.

So make sure to wash it before stepping out.

If you don’t slip from the slippery shower floor today, you might tomorrow.

So to avoid accidents, please wash your shower floor with soap and water after rinsing the scrub off your body.

Salt may sting your eyes.

Also, the salt may sting your eyes when exfoliating your face.

So keep your eyes closed until you’ve rinsed your face.

Be gentle

Scrubbing your skin too hard can cause skin irritation.

So please be gentle with the brown sugar Himalayan sea salt face scrub when exfoliating your skin.

Use gentle circular motions with your fingertips without using too much pressure.

I even found that the scrub particles make my skin rougher when I scrub too hard.

So these days, I exfoliate gently to remove dead skin cells and let new skin appear.

Moisturise afterward

Though I don’t use moisturizers after exfoliating with a DIY scrub made with coconut oil.

But if you need to use more moisturizers, that’s okay.

Because my heels dry quickly, I’d moisturize them and my knees and elbows too.

So do what works for you.

Exfoliate at the time that’s best for you.

Because some mornings I’m rushing out of the house, I can’t exfoliate the same day.

So I prefer to exfoliate my face at night if I have a busy morning.

Also, I discovered that doing my skincare routine at night helps my skin look more beautiful.

And some weekends, I exfoliate during the day and use sunscreen.

So exfoliate with this brown sugar Himayaln sea salt scrub on the best days for you.

And make sure to use sunscreen.

Do a patch test.

Lastly, make sure you do a patch test before you use this scrub because all skin types differ.

So your skin might react differently to a sugar salt scrub than mine.

So if you notice any discomfort, please stop immediately, and rinse your face with water.
