When exposed to sunlight more frequently, your skin cells get damaged and ultimately die. If the dead skin cells are not exfoliated, they leave heavy scars on your face and destroy the underlying sensitive part of the skin.
Certain formulas available in the market slough off the dead skin cells from your face but may not be in the affordable range for everyone. So here in this article, you will find a few remedies that can be easily performed at home and help you get rid of the skin cells.
Coffee grounds can be a good exfoliator to buff away dead skin cells. Also, coffee is rich in flavonoids, which, when used directly on the skin, improve the skin texture and maintain a glowing complexion.
How to make coffee scrub at home:
- 3 tablespoons ground coffee
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of almond oil
- Sugar in crystalline form
Mix all the ingredients mentioned above and make a paste out of it.
How to apply the coffee mask:
Apply this paste on your face, neck, knees, elbows, and feet and massage it in circular motions. Leave it for 5 to 10 minutes, and then wash it with warm water. Pat dry and then moisturize your skin. Use this scrub once a week to see the difference.
