Dead skin removal scrubs - Home made scrubs to remove dead skin


Through the natural skin regenerative process, old skin cells die out and new skin cells are developed to replace these old cells. However, the problem is, often the old cells are not removed naturally from the surface of the skin and they continue to accumulate on the skin as a layer, stopping the new cells to take their place.

Accumulation of dead skin cells on the skin can lead to several skin issues. These dead cells not only give a rough and patchy look to the skin but can also work as one of the primary substances to block the skin pores which can give rise to blackheads, whiteheads and even pimple or acne.

So, removing the dead skin from the skin surface is actually vital to enjoy a naturally healthy skin.

One of the most effective ways of removing the dead skin is scrubbing. Scrubbing gently brushes off the dead skin and enables the new skin cells to take their place. The good thing is that, for removing the dead skin through scrubbing you need not to rush to a parlor.

Some simple yet effective homemade scrubs can give you the best effects right in your home. Here we have listed a list of homemade scrubs that can remove the dead skin cells gently and most effectively.
