Here's an all-natural exfoliant:
Pound some ripe tomatoes, and mix some oatmeal until the mixture becomes sticky.
Wipe on freshly- washed skin. The vitamin-C in tomatoes will help get rid of dead skin cells
and whiteheads, while the oatmeal will serve as a facial mask that will make the skin supple.
This also works as an antioxidant, and not just an exfoliant.
Sometimes, when my face becomes too oily, I tend to get whiteheads on my nose, so I dab a piece of lemon all around my face. Be careful around the eyes though, and leave it for at least 15 minutes. I also use this for whitening dark spots on my skin. It worked for me,I've been doing this since my teenage years. I hope this can help you too. It's my regular exfoliant.
