While some people have naturally good skin, others have to work hard for it. Thank your lucky stars for the clear complexion, but remember that no matter in which group you belong to, a skincare routine is essential. Not only to fight off acne and breakouts but also due to the daily exposure to dirt and germs that take a toll on our skin.
But sometimes, despite all the serums, creams, and oils you use, your skin will still look dry and dull. Well, this is where face scrubs come in. Scrubbing removes dead skin, dirt accumulated in your skin pores, excess oil, and sweat. But most importantly, you don’t have to spend a fortune as you can make them at home with natural ingredients.
Skin is our largest organ, and everything we put on our face the skin absorbs it, eventually finding its way into our bloodstream, which is yet another reason to try out beauty remedies at home. We should aim for natural ingredients on our skin, and that’s why homemade face scrubs are the ideal solution. You’ll save money, avoid unfamiliar chemicals, and have glowing skin as a result.
According to Teal Notes, essential oils and exfoliating agents (sugar, coffee, oatmeal) are two additions that make every homemade scrub more effective. Remember that, and follow us for the best homemade scrub for glowing skin. None of it will take more than five minutes to make, tops.
Oil And Coffee Powder Scrub
Coffee has antioxidants that keep the skin firm, whereas oil keeps your skin moisturized. For this scrub, you’re going to need half a tablespoon of powdered sugar, one tablespoon of coffee powder, and one tablespoon of almond or olive oil. Mix the ingredients in a bowl and use it for your face as well as your body, at least once a week. If you use the scrub regularly, it will make your skin shine, according to Beauty Health Tips.
Sandalwood Face Scrub
Suited for all skin types, this scrub will leave your skin with a soft and silky complexion. Take two tablespoons of sandalwood powder, one tablespoon of powdered saffron, two tablespoons of dried rose petals’ powder, and a few drops of rose water, and mix them to form a smooth paste. After wetting your hands, apply the mixture to your skin and gently massage in circular motions. Do this for 10 minutes then rinse it with cold water.
Exfoliating Face Scrub With Essential Oils
It’s a gentle scrub that you can use daily. According to Wendy Polisi, it’s super-easy to make with only three ingredients: oatmeal, powdered coconut milk, and essential oils. You can also use regular milk, but preferably organic. First, you put one cup of oatmeal in the food processor until it’s ground, then mix it with 1/2 cup of coconut milk in a small bowl. Finally, add in essential oils (8 drops of Soft Skin) and mix them. When it’s ready to use, mix a teaspoon of water in your and then apply to face.
Lemon-Sugar Face Scrub
Lemon has beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that helps eliminate dead cells, and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that hydrates the skin, prevents pores from clogging and enhances cell renewal through exfoliation. Sugar also removes dead cells and leaves your skin soft. What you will need to do is mix both the ingredients well together, and apply it to your face. Before using, make sure to wet your face with warm water as it opens the pores so that the scrub can be more effective. After gently scrubbing your face, rinse it off with warm water.
Take two tablespoons of orange peel powder and oats, and add one tablespoon of honey. Then add a little water and mix them well. Apply the mixture on clean skin, massaging gently in circular strokes. After letting it sit for a few minutes, rinse it with water. This scrub will leave your skin looking bright, claims ETimes.
Coconut Lime Salt Scrub
Midget Momma swears by this scrub! For its preparation, you will need two limes, one teaspoon of lime juice, one cup Epson salt, half a cup of coconut oil, and one teaspoon coconut extract. The Epson salt is a great exfoliator, while the coconut oil will keep your skin moisturized. Use a microplane zester to zest the green of the limes, but remove only the outer green. In a bowl, mix up the lime juice, Epson salt, coconut oil, and the coconut extract. After adding the lime zest into the mixture, store it in an airtight glass container.
