Here is some fantastic scrub recipes that can be made at home.
Honey-orange scrub
Combine orange peel powder and oats in equal amounts (two tablespoons each) and mix one tablespoon of honey. Adjust the consistency to a thick paste, with a little water. Apply on clean skin using very mild upward and small circular strokes. Let it sit on face for a couple of minutes and then rinse well. Pat dry, tone and moisture.
Banana scrub
Take two ripe bananas, mash and add ground sugar. For hydration and moisture, add one tablespoon of honey. Gently massage this mildly fragrant pulp on your face for five minutes, then wash it off with cool water.
Curd and papaya scrub
Mix half-a-cup of ripe mashed papaya with two tablespoons of hung curd, three drops of lemon juice and one tablespoon of honey. Massage this homemade facial scrub into your skin using gentle circular motions. Leave it on for five minutes and then rinse thoroughly with cool water.
Ground oats and tomato scrub
Take a plate of ground oats and powdered sugar. Slice large red and ripe tomatoes. Dip two large thick slices of tomatoes into the ground oats and sugar mixture. Now rub your skin gently with this using circular motions. Once your entire face and neck are scrubbed, take some more tomato slices and let it sit on your face for a while. Tomatoes have natural bleaching agents and the oats soothe your skin.
Lemon scrub for your hands, feet
Take one lime and slice into half. Hold both the halves in your hands and dip into powdered sugar. Now, scrub your hands and feet for five minutes with this. Never use this on your face as this may harm sensitive facial skin.
Leave it on your hands and feet for around five minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water to reveal smooth skin.
How to scrub correctly
Splash water on your face. Take a one tablespoon scrub and gently massage all over your face and neck avoiding the under-eye area. Don’t apply too much pressure and do not keep scrubbing for more than two minutes. You may scrub a little harder on the T-zone area of face.
