Exfoliating Skin with Natural Ingredients


Exfoliation is a process used in order to remove dead skin cells. This can be achieved with either chemical or natural products.

Exfoliation is an essential part of skin cleansing, used especially on the drier and rougher areas such as elbows, knees, arms and legs. Although exfoliation has many benefits for our skin, it is very important that we do not abuse it because if we over exfoliate the skin, the treatment could have adverse effects, such as irritation.

At Bienestar y Belleza Market we are always committed to natural products and treatments, so we will explain how you can exfoliate your skin naturally using different products. Below, we give you several recipes so you can create your own skin exfoliator. Each recipe is suitable for different skin types and for different parts of the body. Take note, the results will surprise you.


Sugar and coffee against cellulite

This combination of ingredients is ideal for exfoliating areas where there is cellulite, such as the legs and buttocks. The sugar is the ingredient that gently exfoliates the skin and the caffeine found in coffee is responsible for reactivating circulation, thus preventing fat from accumulating under the skin.

Necessary ingredients

5 tablespoons brown sugar

6 tablespoons olive oil or moisturising cream

200 gr coffee powder

How to prepare

Mix all the ingredients together until you have a uniform mixture.

Instructions for use

For exfoliation treatments, we recommend that they are carried out in the shower, as having wet and clean skin, the exfoliant will be applied much better and its effectiveness will be greater. Apply the product using circular movements, once applied, leave it to act on your skin for 20 minutes and finally remove it with lukewarm water. You will immediately notice how your skin softens and recovers its luminosity.
