The result exceeded all expectations. And the secret of the effectiveness of such cosmetic wing is not in the divine charms of Greek damsels, and in the ideal proportions of the components. Intrigued? Then let me introduce you to homemade recipes for scrubs and exfoliating body.

Before opening the secrets of ancient Greek goddesses, let's see, what is the difference between a body peeling and peeling. Some women find that they are one and the same. But there is a difference. And very significant. Both procedures are designed to exfoliate the skin. If peeling does it carefully, the body scrub removes dead skin cells more aggressive.

Body Scrub: art application
But before you close the bathroom in anticipation of a home spa treatments, let me tell you about the intricacies of exfoliation. After all, just put on a body scrub and rinse with warm water a little. In some cases, the healing properties of scrubs have a negative effect on the skin. Therefore, in order not to be trapped, remember a few rules:
Do not use a body scrub if you have inflamed skin. Either give up the procedure at a time, or replace the scrub peeling.
Also, do not apply the scrub if you have enlarged pores. So you hurt yourself more. Sometimes exfoliating particles clogged in the enlarged pores and cause inflammation.
Use a body scrub should be no more than once every 4 days. However, there are homemade recipes softer action, which can be used much more frequently. However, in this case we recommend to be careful. Frequent use of dry peeling skin.
Do not apply body scrub to dry skin. First, degrease the body using a shower gel. After a rinse with warm water, and only then put on a skin scrub. Notice we did not say anything about the towel.
After peeling the skin should moisturize cream. And to do this it is best to wet skin. Although if you use a body scrub based oils, the skin has to be sufficiently hydrated and the cream is not required.
The main ingredients scrubs
The home of cosmetology is very important to grasp the principle of cooking scrub. You can not even stick to the proportions dictated by the recipe. But to understand the essence of cooking is to every woman. As an example, cooking, where there are thousands of recipes for meat, but they are all united by one principle. And if a woman has no lemon sauce to the meat, she intuitively can replace it with another citrus fruit: lime, orange or grapefruit. Also, a body scrub. Since its objective is to update the skin, it must contain exfoliating particles. This can be salt, sugar, coffee, oatmeal. Let's look at the benefits of each of the components separately.
Great for fighting cellulite and vascular "asterisks". In addition, ground coffee constricts blood vessels and smells. A disadvantage scrub containing ground coffee, is the fact that it is poorly soluble in water. Therefore, after the procedure at the bottom of the bathroom often left the coffee sand. If this prospect does not frighten you, feel free to use homemade recipes coffee scrub. If - no, read on and you will find the recipe scrub like.
Salt is different. But since we are not going to cook the food, and the body scrub, we will suit absolutely any kind of salt.

You can equally well utilize both white and brown sugar. All homemade recipes provide this replacement. In addition, sugar-scrubs recommended for those women who have sensitive skin. The reason is simple - the sugar has a mild effect on the skin, rather than coffee and salt.
But most still considered mild body scrub on porridge. We're not talking about ordinary oatmeal, and an oat flour. It is this part of the home recipes scrub sensitive and dry skin. Very often, because of problems with the high sensitivity of women can not use the oil in a body scrub. Many of them refuse to do the procedure exfoliation. And for good reason.
