There are many natural sources available around us which provide better skin protection. They take quite a long time to reflect results but are good for skin and there will not be any side effects.

Before going for exfoliation It is important to remove makeup, dust, sweat from the face. Since most of the homemade exfoliators come as facial masks, applying mask over unclean face may result in clogging pores, black, and whiteheads. Wash face with a facewash and tap dry with a smooth towel.
