Homemade Facial Scrub Recipes

Updated on November 2, 2011

Facial scrub removes the dead skin cells from the face. It exposes the healthy skin that lies below. It will also get rid of certain skin problems and help you to get a clear face. This technique is called exfoliation and improves the texture of the skin. It will clear the clogging up of the skin pores by the dead skin and reduce the chances of blackheads and acne. It will also soften up the surface of the skin and delay the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Facial scrubs available in the market may contain harmful chemicals. Homemade face scrub can be prepared using natural ingredients. They are far less expensive than the scrubs that are available in the market. There are several effective homemade facial scrub recipes

      Another very good, DIY beauty procedure from you. Voting it up and useful! I'm going to try the papaya facial although I'm also wondering if I can cut down the time to less than half an hour and still get the same great effects on my skin.
