Winterize Your Skin with Natural Beauty Treatments

Corn meal for exfoliating


It’s important to help the body remove dead skin cells so it can replenish with new ones. New skin cells are better able to defend against the elements as well as offer vibrancy. A few options for quick face scrubs are oatmeal and corn meal. Simply take a tablespoon of either and mix with a dime size portion of face soap  massaging in circular motions avoid delicate eye areas. Since you are cleaning and exfoliating, rinse and you are done. For some, this can be done every night, but most faces can handle once or twice a week. For more sensitive skin, yogurt makes a great facial massage which gently removes dead skin cells and impurities. Again use about a tablespoon and leave on the face for about ten minutes and then rinse.
