3 Fantastic Homemade Facial Scrubs
Lucky are those people who have naturally smooth and flawless skin but I bet there are only a handful of people who don’t necessarily need to do anything to maintain their skin. Most of us however, have to work a little harder to achieve that perfect looking texture. Apart from eating right, it is vital to follow a healthy beauty regime to ensure the skin is free from skin problems. Your regular beauty regime may include several steps but today we are only going stress on ‘exfoliating’ the skin.
Do you exfoliate your skin? If yes, how often do you do it? The answers to these questions are important as exfoliation is a prime part of maintaining the skin’s health. It helps in removing dead skin cells that our skin develops overtime due to dirt, pollution and excess sun exposure. Not exfoliating enough can result in developing blackheads, acne or other skin problems. Today I am going to share my 3 favorite and 100% natural homemade Facial Scrubs (especially great for sensitive skin) that will help you get smooth and flawless skin. Remember to exfoliate your skin at least once and not more than twice a week as excess scrubbing can also lead to skin problems.
1| Coconut Oil + Brown Sugar
Mix 2 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil with 2 tablespoon brown sugar and mix the two ingredients together until it forms a smooth paste. Apply this paste on your face and gently scrub your skin focusing most on your T-zone. Massage your skin for about 4-5 minutes then wash your face with lukewarm water. Wipe your face clean. No need to apply moisturizer as coconut oil acts as a natural moisturizer.
2| Banana + Honey + Sugar
Mash 1 ripe banana into a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon raw organic honey and 2 tablespoon brown sugar to the bowl of mashed banana and mix all the ingredients together. Keep blending until you end up getting a fine paste. Apply this mixture on your face and scrub your face gently for 5 minutes. Wash your face with cold water and moisturize afterward.
3| Lemon + Olive Oil + Honey + Sugar
In a bowl, mix together half a spoon lemon juice, half a spoon extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon brown sugar granules and half tablespoon raw honey. Blend the ingredients together and scrub your face for 5 minutes. Lemon cleanses, olive oil and honey moisturizes while sugar helps remove dirt and dead skin cells.
