On which parts of the body do we use the coffee exfoliant?

These natural mixtures that we are going to start using, now with greater knowledge, can be used in almost any area of ​​the body. It is especially recommended for the face, elbows, heels, knees, thighs, forearms, belly and buttocks. We want to explain what you will work in each area.

On the face, it facilitates the extraction of blackheads and that facial creams and masks adhere better to the skin of the face and improve the results of your beauty routines.

Heels, elbows, and knees are heavily exposed to the fresh air on a daily basis, so scrubs will make them look brighter and better hydrated.

On the thighs and belly it will help you reduce cellulite and stretch marks, but you must do it with some regularity and with constant and effective movements.

How often to do the exfoliation?

It depends on several factors, such as the area of ​​​​the body, the ingredients you use and your skin type. If you notice any adverse effect in its use, do not hesitate to see a specialist or dermatologist. Some people think that it is perfect to perform exfoliations three times a week, however, this can irritate your skin a little, if you do it twice a month is enough. In oily skin, you can afford to do it more frequently, while in dry skin you should avoid exfoliating more than twice a month.
