The Best Natural Exfoliants to Care for Your Skin

Our flora offers us countless unique benefits, at various levels. It is important to preserve and use each type of plant to ensure that we can extract the best it has to offer, without any of its properties being annihilated.

Even though there is a common idea that everything that exists in Nature is guaranteed to be good for us, the truth is that this is not how it works in every case. This is especially true in the case of plants, as they often use chemical means to defend themselves from threats in their natural habitat .

We must be aware of the distinction between the names of medicinal plant and phytotherapy. While the first aims to provide scientific proof that it is capable of curing diseases or alleviating symptoms, the second consists of a medicine that undergoes a rigorous evaluation of safety and effectiveness in humans. Considering all this, we can focus on one of the great benefits that certain plants have to offer us: taking care of our skin.

TEA TREE

The tea tree plant, for example, has numerous antiseptic and antibacterial characteristics, purifying our skin, leaving it with fewer blemishes and fewer imperfections, with oily skin being the one that benefits most from its action.

NEEM

To exfoliate our skin, we can benefit on a large scale from neem , which has precursor compounds for a purifying and brightening exfoliation, eliminating spots caused by the Sun, and from the almond tree, which has a fruit rich in flavonoids, with anti-aging and antioxidant action and also vitamin E, allowing a calming of the decrease in hormonal production that occurs naturally over the years.
Neem leaves, powdered, are great as a skin exfoliant. You can use neem oil with products such as green clay or sea salt and massage in small circles. This way, it will eliminate dead cells and stimulate the growth of new cells.
You can also grate three tablespoons of almonds and beat them together with an egg yolk and a teaspoon of honey, and pour in hot water until a paste is formed that can be spread over the face and neck. The mixture must remain in place for 30 minutes and then be removed gently.

MAUVE

Mallow can also be a precious natural element in skin treatments that include exfoliation, thanks to its moisturizing properties and its anti-aging effect that regenerates tissues, having vitamin C in its composition, as well as beta-carotene, which gives our complexion a touch of luminosity. You can use this plant by infusing ten of these leaves in a liter of water for ten minutes. Let it strain to obtain the mallow water and apply it to your face after exfoliating it.
