Los Angeles, June 24 (IANS): Actress Emma Stone has made an interesting revelation about her beauty secret. She says she uses baking soda to exfoliate her skin. 'When I want to exfoliate my skin, I simply scrub it with some baking soda,' Elle Magazine quoted the 24-year-old as saying. The star admits she hardly ever works out and says she prefers to practice relaxing techniques like yoga instead, reports contactmusic.com. 'At the moment I don't do that much, but I know I need to change that. I'm trying to get into yoga, I like it and apparently it's very good for you. As well as yoga, I do a bit of meditation,' said Stone.
What is exfoliating or scrubbing?
Scrubs are essentially used to get rid of the dead skin cells from our skin. If not cleansed from time to time, they can clog pores which can lead to skin problems like acne or pimples. They also age the skin faster by blocking proper blood circulation. Scrubs exfoliate the skin and free it from these dead cells.
When to scrub?
Scrubbing is recommended by various skin experts but the number of times one scrubs their face depends on their skin-type. People with oily skin can scrub more often than people who have dry, flaky skin; or youngsters can scrub more often than older women with mature skin. The micro-beads present in scrubs will clear out your skin and make it smoother and glowing.
But even then, scrubbing can leave your skin feeling raw and harsh if done in excess. Remember, scrubbing is not a daily skin routine. It should be done only once in a week or 15 days, based on how your skin reacts to it. People who have sensitive skin should ideally ask their dermatologist how often they should use a scrub as it can lead it redness and rashes if overdone. Read more
