Here are a couple of ways you can exfoliate your skin this winter
Oatmeal is said to give your skin the desired glow. There are a lot of ways you can use oatmeal to exfoliate your skin. You can make an oatmeal scrub, facial or a cream. Oats are coarse without being uncomfortably rough so they are ideal for scrubbing away dead skin and debris.
Using milk is also another way to exfoliate your skin. Due to the cold weather, your skin starts losing its moisture, thus you can opt for a milk bath to not only help exfoliate your skin but also give a proper moisture to it. Add some whole milk to your bath or simply wash your face with it. Leave it for approximately five to seven minutes before cleaning it off with a tissue.
The use of facial masks also ensures a clean skin. Use a pack with salicylic acid or alpha hydroxyl acid. You can also use a pack with besan, turmeric and cucumber to cleanse and exfoliate your skin.
The use of pumice stone is another way to exfoliate your skin. But do not use it on your face. You can lather some soap on your body and scrub it using a pumice stone.
