Coffee scrub for face and body
The history of scrubs dates back several centuries. Once upon a time there was not something like scrubs, even the concept of & quot; cosmetics & quot; did not exist. But in all eras there were real women, which means there was a desire to be beautiful, attractive, to preserve youth and charm. Probably, it was this desire that formed the basis of many Russian folk tales, for example, the fairy tale about the Frog Princess, which, having thrown off its skin, became a beauty. Another example is the tale of a rejuvenating apple, fresh milk, and so on.
But how realistic is it to bring it all to life? It turns out really! If the existence of rejuvenating apples is not proven, then to a certain extent, & quot; change skin & quot; can. Scientists, starting to study the structure of the epidermis, were surprised. The upper layer consists of dead skin flakes, under which new young and healthy skin cells are formed. And this layer can self-repair.
But man always wanted to improve what nature gave him. Therefore, scrubs appeared, that is, substances that literally & quot; remove & quot; keratinous skin. Even the ancient Egyptian women mixed sand with ashes and stone chips, and this composition lubricated the heels and elbows. In fact, this strange blend is the progenitor of modern scrubs. The Greek women did it easier - they rubbed them with five fine sand.
Do not forget about the great-grandmother scrub - the usual volcanic pumice. But, of course, it is not in any comparison with the delicate substances that are sold in stores. After them - and the skin is velvety, and pink face, and smell nice. The bad thing is that there is nothing natural. Smoothness is achieved by titanium, which is part of all cosmetics, blush is just an allergy.
What to do? The answer is simple - learn to cook your own scrubs at home. One of the most universal means for making scrub is ground coffee. Besides the fact that it is a finished abrasive, ground coffee beans contain essential oils that have a beneficial effect on the skin, stimulating blood circulation and cell renewal. Of course, it is better to use only coffee that is drunk, since it is still warm, which means that coffee oil will better penetrate the skin. Below are some recipes of coffee scrub.
