Only the body, which is regularly taken care of can be young and beautiful for a long time. However, very often women concentrate on nourishing and moisturizing their skin, while practically forgetting about its deep cleansing.

Deep skin cleansing is a multi-stage process, one of the most important tools of which is the use of scrub. Scrub gently exfoliates the horny layer of the skin, thereby stimulating the renewal of the skin. You can easily do scrub at home using such tasty fruit as apricot.

Not everyone knows about great properties of apricot kernels. Apricot is very useful. This fruit contains a large amount of carotene (16%). Any other fruit can not boast of this indicator. Carotene makes the complexion more vivid, healthy and simply beautiful.
