The bad thing is that these microplastics are becoming a big problem. Its use and abuse is making these small and almost tiny particles appear anywhere. This is because, being so small, they are not retained by most filters. And when I say they appear anywhere, I mean they have been found in animals and also in tap water.

Yes, start looking differently at those creams that leave your skin so perfect because it may be coming to you in an unwanted way.But this blog is about finding solutions. And they are simple solutions. So here are a few proposals that I hope you like. Body scrubs What I use for years are two options.

The horsehair glove, which I have now replaced with a sponge of olive bones, and coffee  Tagua Natural exfoliating beads could be used for cosmetics . Either option is very simple and economical. In the case of coffee grounds, it was said that they also served to fight cellulite, but it is not true.

What is certain is that it leaves the skin super soft and with a very good smell. I use it in the shower, with wet skin. They rub against the body for a few minutes and voila. In the case of coffee grounds or horse hair gloves, the use can be weekly or every 15 days. But in the case of the olive bone sponge, being softer, it can be used daily.

Lip scrub On this occasion I leave you a recipe. It consists of mixing only three ingredients: bio tagua natural exfoliant microbeads , oil and honey in a small jar. Besides being very simple, it is easy to keep, so you don’t have to make the mixture every time you use it. In this case it is also advisable to use it every 15 days, the skin of the lips is very thin and a higher frequency could be harmful. Facial scrub Once again you can turn to coffee grounds or sugar.
