Scrubs at Home
Updated: May 29, 2020
The skin and hair industry has a million products to offer for your beauty. Covering all kinds of skin, problems, prices, and of course chemicals. These products contain elements that are more harmful than beneficial to your skin. This is why I only trust organic and herbal products. They are not as quickly effective as those commercial products but they definitely help you in the long term and protect your skin from a lot of damage. The best part of natural products is that you can make them right at your own home. So I have some easy to make and effective to use home remedies that you should totally try out!
Tomato, Honey, and Lemon
If you have oily skin, you should totally try this one. Wash your face with a cleanser first. Then, in a small bowl, squeeze half slice of lemon. Add the juicy extract of a small tomato and mix well with a teaspoon of honey. Apply the mixture with your fingertips onto your face and leave for about 15 minutes. Rinse it with water and pat dry with a clean towel. You’ll feel your skin fresh, brightened, and cleared. You can apply a little moisturizer if you feel dry.
Banana Sugar Scrub
For dry people, this is a must. Take a banana, coconut oil, and blend it together until it becomes smooth. Now simply add sugar to it mix well. This body scrub is great for moisturizing. The banana provides Vitamin C and B6 and a large amount of antioxidants, the sugar removes dead skin and coconut oil moisturizes the skin.
Honey and Brown Sugar
This scrub will remove the blackheads and leave your skin moisturized. Take half a cup of oatmeal and mix it with brown sugar. Add honey and coconut oil to it and mix well. Apply it on your skin and leave for about 20 mins. Rinse it off to find clear and soft skin.
Sugar and Salt
What could be easier than this? This is the advantage of homemade stuff. As the name suggests, you get everything easily available at home. For this one, you need sugar and salt obviously, with coconut oil. Mix it well and apply it. You’ll find your skin clear, fresh, and moisturized.
Coconut Lime Scrub
This is one of my favorites because it has my beloved ingredients. Take coconut oil and melt it until its complete liquid. Add sugar and lime drops with grated lemon zest and mix well. Cleanse your face with lukewarm water before applying the scrub.
Cucumber body scrub
This is one scrub that will leave your body pampered. Take 1 cup white sugar, 3/4th cucumber, 1/4th coconut oil, and basil leaves (optional). Blend the cucumber and basil leaves. Add the sugar and coconut oil and mix well until you like the consistency.
Lemon can do wonders! It’s my favorite exfoliator. All you gotta do is take in a bowl, sugar, honey, olive oil, and lemon juice. Mix well and apply it on your skin and rinse it after it has done its magic for about 15-20 mins. Voila!
That’s all for today fe
