Exfoliating masks


These masks are designed to remove the dead cells and stale oil from the surface of the skin leaving it soft and tender. While using a scrub, use your fingertips to apply with circular movements. However, don’t become too enthusiastic while scrubbing the skin. These can leave your face feeling sore because they have tiny abrasive bits in them. Don’t do this often.
A mild and easy do-it-yourself exfoliating mask is applying olive oil mixed with a bit of coarse salt once a week or so. Gently scrub your face with a complexion brush (a shaving brush will also do) and wash off with warm water.
Another excellent exfoliating mask is made by simply drying and grinding orange peel to a fine powder. Mix it with milk or water, one teaspoon at a time. Spread evenly all over the face. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off.

    An exfoliating mask is something you smoothe all over you face, leave it for about 5-10 minutes and then wash it off to get read of dead skin, blackheads, etc. and makes your skin smoothe and soft :)

    They take the top layer of dead skin off. You loose skin continuously .this just helps it along, and leaves your face nice and soft.

    for the face, try oatmeal and rose water, or sugar and lemon juice, just make sure it does not come in the eyes, sugar and lemon is also an excellent way to make hands become smooth. just dip a lemon slice in sugar and rub it into the hands till the sugar melts.
    for the body, just mix sugar with olive oil, it'll make your skin soooo soft! i like this better than salt scrubs. just make sure you clean the bath tub so well right after all this or you will attract creepy crawlies!!!

    Pineapple is supposed to exfoliate. Put it in a food processor and use as a mask. You could mix it with some sugar (salt can burn your skin). Oatmeal also works.
