No facial is complete without scrub. we remove dead skin cell by scrubbing and reveal fresher looking skin. However sometimes the skin gets adversely effected because of the harsh chemicals in some scrubs. Scrubbing should be done in every 2 - 3 weeks. To avoid these conditions, given below is a list of some homemade scrubs.

  1. Apricot seed powder is skin friendly and removes dirt from face.
  2. Rose hip seed powder helps in rejuvenation of the skin.
  3. 1 tsp of walnut powder, lemon juice and 1/ 2 tsp of honey is a good scrub for skin.

      I was applying almond and milk paste on my face daily and then after 5 or 6 days I noticed that my skin was becoming dark.I have discontinued using it but what should I do to get back my fairness and my skin is very oily.

      Wow this is so cool! I love the variety of things you have shared here to help us, with the care of our facial skin:) I want to find some of that apricot powder! I have heard too...of a country that ate apricot seeds, (I'm sure they ground them down too), they were known for being cancer free in their country:) Bookmarked this hub! Thankyou:)

There are so many natural and inexpensive facial scrubs listed, I don't know which one to try first. I think I'll try the one that I have the ingredients for, the honey cucumber and oatmeal scrub. Thank you for the article.
