This is a treatment to be used all year round, but especially in spring it becomes a beauty ally.
Especially for oily skin, delicate exfoliation is effective for reducing excess sebum, freeing clogged pores and eliminating blackheads and pimples.
To take care of the skin it is also important to pay attention to nutrition, opting for a healthy and balanced diet, rich in fruit and vegetables (to take vitamins and mineral salts), fish, fats of vegetable origin, fibers and cereals. It is also necessary to limit alcohol, sugary drinks and foods that are too refined.
