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


Almond scrub

Almond is commonly used for skincare. Grind ten almonds to a fine powder. Mix it with an equal quantity of oatmeal. Add some rose petals and two tbsp of milk powder. Add a few drops of almond oil as well. Mix it well and make it into a paste. Apply it on your face before going to bed. Wash it off the next morning.

Sugar mixture

Take half a cup of powdered sugar in a jar. Add lemon juice till it becomes viscous. Add a few drops of virgin olive oil and mix it thoroughly. Apply it to your face and wash it off after an hour. Sugar exfoliates and gets rid of the dead skin cells effectively.

Papaya facial scrub

Take a piece of papaya and mash it well. Add half tsp of brown sugar and mix it well. Apply it on your face and wash it off after half and hour. It will get rid of all the dead cells and help you to get a clear face.

Honey almond scrub

Grind two almonds and add a tsp of lemon juice. Add a tbsp of honey and mix it well. Apply it to your face and wash it off after 30 minutes.

Strawberry facial scrub

      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.
