Which homemade scrub is good for oily and acne prone skin?
If you have acne prone skin it is best if you DON'T use a scrub on your skin. You can actually make your acne worse and also aggravate your skin, making it flare up.
One homemade treatments for acne/oily skin is milk of magnesia mask on your face which calms the redness and gently absorbs the oils.
I also recommend using a gentle cleanser that does not contain perfume or any other harsh ingredient that could upset your skin.
Over-scrubbing and over-washing can cause your skin to produce even more oil!
use orange powder mixed with milk and a bit of sandalwood powder, make a fine paste and apply, it lightens your skin color as well as removes acne spots too.
Typically people with acne also have sensitive skin, so try to avoid anything that has harsh chemicals in it. You should also avoid exfoliating too often because it can make acne worse by breaking open sores and spreading bacteria, causing more breakouts. If you must exfoliate, try mixing just a pinch of sea salt with your normal cleanser. Be careful not to over scrub, just gently massage the skin in a circular motion taking care not to irritate any breakout areas. The sea salt also has natural antibacterial properties, so it will help to clear up the skin as well.
You might also want to try using raw organic honey masks, which are great for acne and they also help with exfoliation. For more info about honey masks you can check out my hub here:

Physiogel or Cetaphil?I have a sensitive skin and tends to get irritated easily when I use strong cleanser. I heard about Cetaphil and Physiogel as hypoallergenic products, since they are not cheap, I wanted to make sure that I buy the right one. Any tips? TIA.
