How Often Should You Exfoliate?

milea lemongrass coffeeMostly, we wonder how often should we exfoliate? Exfoliating every day is bad for our skin because it can strip the skin off its natural oils which can cause breakouts. It can also thin the skin and cause it to wrinkle more easily.

Exfoliating unclog pores and prevents blackhead formation. You should only exfoliate once or twice a week. Try all natural facial scrub such as Lemongrass Coffee Facial Scrub. It contains lemongrass as base and is loaded with barako coffee.

Lemongrass helps limit bacterial growth and helps ward of pimples. This herb acts as astringent which helps minimize pores and limits the secretion of oil.

The caffeine in coffee has rich inflammatory properties that reduces redness and leaves you with beautiful, even skin tone.

Stretch Marks

For many women, stretch marks are as much part of having a baby as diapers, feedings and sleepless nights. Stretch marks happen when your body grows faster than your skin can keep up with. It causes elastic fibers under the surface of your skin to break. This leaves you with stretch marks on your belly, breasts, thighs, buttocks or upper arms.
