There’s no denying that when it comes to our skin, redheads are a little more sensitive. We burn, breakout and react. Each season brings it’s own challenges but both are tough on our skin. So how do we nourish our skin during the summer months- a summer that's looking like it’s gonna be a hot one- Exfoliate!
It’s time that we make tending to our skin a weekly ritual, rather than an every once in a while or whenever you have time thingy. Besides, taking care of your skin now means that you’ll look younger later, so it’s sorta worth it.
Exfoliation is one of the most important practices that you can perform on your skin to achieve healthy and glowing skin, in addition to resolving certain skin issues. According to Holly Sherrard, education manager for Dermalogica Canada, “Exfoliating increases cell turnover to reveal newer, healthier skin cells, plus it decreases blackheads, minimizes hyperpigmentation and fine lines, and imparts an all-over healthy glow.”
For a great exfoliation product, we recommend an easy recipe that you can whip up right in your kitchen.
Antioxidant Body Scrub:
Mix all the ingredients together and store in an airtight container or mason jar. Use 1-2 times a week. The coffee and sugar/salt will exfoliate your skin while the coconut oil will leave it feeling soft and supple. Added bonus- the caffeine in the scrub helps to firm your skin and may even reduce cellulite.
