How to exfoliate your skin with the best ingredients.
While regular skin cleansing is clearly beneficial, exfoliating on a regular basis — once or twice a week for mild exfoliation, once or twice a month for more intense treatments — can improve the results of your skin care routine and help rejuvenate your skin. Whether you have dry, normal, oily or sensitive skin, exfoliation can bring new life to your complexion.
If you’ve had a pedicure, then you’re familiar with the benefits of exfoliation. Foot calluses can develop due to daily pressure from workouts, walking and wearing those truly fashionable, but less-than-comfortable shoes that you adore. But after a little apricot scrub and a session with a pumice stone, your feet can feel soft, smooth and sandal-ready. While you wouldn’t employ the exact same methods on your face, or even your arms and legs, the rest of your body certainly can benefit from a little exfoliating.

Remedies and Recipes:
Clay: a mixture of clay and water is an exfoliation recipe that softens the skin, removes redness and soothes inflammation. It also has an anti-fatigue and relaxing effect.
Starch: For rough feet, dilute 1 handful of starch in 3 liters of water.
Cream massage: Dilute in 1cl of sweet almond oil a few drops of lavender essential oil (relaxing), cypress and sage (refreshing and deodorant) or peppermint (for tired and sweaty feet).
