Importance Of Using Scrubs
Scrubbing is an absolute essential as it exfoliates the skin and removes dead skin cells. By removing these dead skin cells via scrubbing, you are actually paving way for brighter and newer skin. Scrubbing provides the skin a cellular turnover of sorts that removes the dead and worked-up cells and replaces them with youthful ones which in turn prevent wrinkles and fine lines. As Shahna Husain tells us that the use of scrubs “helps in the regeneration of new cells”, she also shares with us two recipes to make the perfect anti-aging scrub!
- In the first one, all you have to do is crush some sesame seeds, popularly known as til, and then mix them with honey. Apply this on your face gently and in circular motions.
- The second recipe requires you to just grind almonds, mix it with some yogurt and use it as a scrub for your face.
